If you're a fan of challenging gameplay and action-platformers in general, you might be interested to hear that the Ghouls 'n Ghosts inspired Battle Princess Madelyn is set to arrive this December 6th for both PC and consoles. As you might imagine from that description alone, Battle Princess Madelyn is all about scouring the various levels for secrets and new weapons, mastering the movement and combat mechanics, and naturally, trying to beat up giant bosses without losing any of your power-ups in the process.

You can get a pretty good idea of what Battle Princess Madelyn is all about, as well as what the visual style looks like, through the recently posted trailer down below. Have a gander, it's quite a charming game:

Before you get too worried about the difficulty, it is worth mentioning that there will be two separate game modes for you to mess around with: story mode and arcade mode. The first one will allow you to experience the whole game without encountering too many problems, while the second one will offer up a much greater challenge by emulating some of the gameplay style from the oldschool Ghouls 'n Ghosts. So regardless of what sort of gameplay experience you're looking for, Battle Princess Madelyn seems to have it covered.

You can learn more about Battle Princess Madelyn, or just grab yourself a copy once it releases on December 6th, by heading over to either Steam or the official website.
