New Battle Chasers: Nightwar trailer introduces Alumon

He's a Devil Hunter.

  • Text: Sam Bishop

A brand new trailer for Battle Chasers: Nightwar has been provided to us by Airship Syndicate and THQ Nordic, an animated short by Powerhouse Animation (the minds behind Netflix's Castlevania series) that gives Alumon the Devil Hunter his debut.

"Once a member of a sacred order of monster hunters, Alumon was banished from the order and now operates alone as bounty hunter, taking contracts and doing odd jobs for money, from exorcisms and assassinations if the job requires it (and sometimes even if it doesn't)," the press release explains. "Though Alumon possesses the traditional magic and light-based abilities of the Battle Priests of his order, he has taken his study of the dark arts further than most. Many of his spells and abilities call upon dark magic, often bringing harm to himself or others. Meddling with these dark powers has physically changed Alumon, so he is easily recognized by his frost white hair and serpent-like eyes. For that reason, Alumon usually wears a mask."

The animated short is inspired by title sequences of classic '80s cartoons as well, like Thundercats and Silverhawks, so might just be worth a watch purely for that reason alone. Is this your favourite character so far?
