Metal Tales: Overkill rocks out on April 22

Come on and feel the noise: the game launches on April 22 digitally for PC and consoles.

The rogue-like metalhead beat ’em up (mosh ’em up?) Metal Tales: Overkill is launching on April 22. Developed by Spanish developer Zerouno Games, the game was successfully funded on Kickstarter back in 2020.

The game is launching digitally for the Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Steam.

For Nintendo Switch owners who love physical editions, you’re in luck: two physical editions of the game, published by Tesura Games, are also available. The Deluxe Edition includes a full-color printed manual, a themed guitar pick and a sticker sheet alongside a physical copy. The Collector’s Edition (pictured below), includes all that plus a 56-page artbook and magnetic bottle opener inside a specially-crafted collector’s box. However, these collector’s editions are exclusive for the Nintendo Switch at this time.
