Coming this summer to Nintendo Switch and PC, XEL is an epic sci-fi journey that weaves striking visuals and the classic top-down RPG view with a mesmerising story. A love letter to classic Zelda titles, XEL takes players on an adventure via the amnesiac hero Reid, charged with uncovering the mysteries of the alien planet she’s stranded on.
Stranded in an otherworldly land, Reid is tasked with unravelling her tangled web of lost memories and discovering the secrets of the mystical world of XEL.

Will Reid be able to unlock the enigma of her past and end the cycle of torment for good?
