Sorcery Blasts Onto PS3 May 22nd

Sorcery Blasts Onto PS3 May 22nd

Since it’s announcement at E3 2010, PlayStation Move title Sorcery has been suspiciously absent from mainstream gaming press releases and previews. In a rather unexpected post on the PlayStation Blog this morning, the game made its first reappearance in a long time, complete with screenshots, concept art, and a release date. PlayStation Move owners can start flinging spells and saving the day on May 22, 2012. Details about the game’s story and content are still scarce, but Jefferson Dong of SCEA took the opportunity to give players a taste in the blog post:

Finn is in trouble. First, he accidentally blew up his master’s alchemy lab. Then he’s let Erline, his master’s magical cat, talk him into trespassing in the realm of the dead. Now he’s unleashed an ancient universe-destroying evil that won’t stop until everything he cares about is utterly annihilated. It has not been a good day.

Even though he’s only an apprentice, Finn must find a way to defeat the Nightmare Queen before she destroys the human world. To do this he must plunge deep into the realm of faerie — the Endless Stair, the Faerie Forest, the Slumbering Palace. With Erline travelling at his side he must master powerful and arcane magical spells, and use them to overcome the strange and twisted servants of Nightmare. He must solve challenging puzzles, and decipher the mysteries of alchemy. He must discover the secrets of the Nightmare Queen’s power and undo the damage that she has wrought.

And, above all, he must earn the right to be called … sorcerer.

Sound intriguing? Dust off your PlayStation Move controller and get ready to mix-and-match with the elements this Spring.
