More On: MIRA and the Legend of the Djinns

MIRA and the Legend of the Djinns looks like it could have been released in the heyday of the Super Nintendo. Developer littleknightgames even mentions MIRA being a mix of retro mechanics merged with gameplay novel to the Metroidvania genre. “Drawing deep inspiration from Moroccan and Amazigh culture, language, and spiritual traditions, MIRA and the Legend of the Djinns is an adventure that tells the tale of Yuba, an avid treasure hunter, and a mysterious Djinn named Mira, the first Djinn discovered in generations. The two journey together across the devastated world of Fallen Amazgesh, a world of ruins, to uncover her lost memories, and in turn, what happened to her land and its people.”

MIRA follows the classic 2D Metroidvania-style format, with a few caveats. You can unlock skills by either progressing the story or simply buying them in-game. Mira also has magical abilities. Spells can also have uses outside of combat, forcing you to think outside the box.

You can add MIRA and the Legend of the Djinns to your wishlist on Steam, no word on an official release, just sometime in 2023.
