The developers behind Slain: Back from Hell have announced that their next game Valfaris will be a heavy metal infused 2D action-platformer. Judging from the screenshots alone I would say that Valfaris is a new and improved version of Slain, which is something I am perfectly OK with given that Slain unfortunately didn't manage to live up to its potential.

There is currently no gameplay footage available as Valfaris has just been announced, but if you're interested in seeing what the visuals and music will be like you can check out the recently posted teaser trailer down below. Have a look:

As you might expect given the genre Valfaris will have an array of brutal weaponry to decimate hordes of enemies with, a "diverse range of tainted environments" to explore, as well as a whole host of enemies and bosses to slice in half. And if this wasn't obvious enough already, the soundtrack will be pure action-packed heavy metal.

If you would like to learn more about Valfaris I would suggest going to either Steam or the official website (scroll a bit down), but don't expect to see much right now as Valfaris has only just been announced. As for the release date, Valfaris will be coming to PC and consoles in 2018, though no specific date has been given just yet. And finally, allow me to send you off with a couple of overly-colorful images:
