Frankfurt / Germany, January 19th 2021: Chained Echoes, once it launches, will come along with a full soundtrack fitting perfectly well for the JRPG from Germany. And yet, there will be one track in the game generating some real noise: Publisher Deck13 and developer Matthias Linda have entered a cooperation with brithish mathcore band ZILF.

Chained Echoes is coming along well and more news about the game will drop throug 2021 - but we would like to start this year with a true headbanger. While fans already knew that the JRPG would get a massive soundtrack, a little surprise sneaked into the game.

As expected, the game will also feature certain minigames. Including a Turtle Race. This race will also feature an exclusive song by British Mahcore band ZILF. The song was exclusively written for Chained Echoes and offers 15 seconds of pure headbanger-awesomeness.

"When we got asked to write a 15 seconds mathcore song for a bunch of turtles racing each other in a pixelart JRPG game", says the band, "We answered "That's the most ZILF thing we've ever heared."

The Full Song got revealed with a short gameplay-trailer: Click here.
"Chained Echoes" is set to release at the end of 2021 on PC, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation. Players can expect a classic JRPG with its very own twists: While set in a fantasy world, "Chained Echo" also features custmoizeable airships and huge Mechs. The story driven game will feature a easy to learn but hard to master turn-based combat system and no weird random encounters: Every fight, every area will be handcrafted.

  • Fast paced turn-based battles
  • No random encounters: enemies can be seen running around all the time
  • Complex skill and equipment system
  • Travel and fight by foot or in your own Mech
  • Customize your own airship
