The game is a sequel to Agnostiko Origins, which was released on Xbox One and Series X|S in 2022. Unlike its predecessor, Agnostiko VS will not be a Metroidvania but a fighting game set in the series’ iconic steampunk Philippines scenario.

Ten years after the events in Agnostiko, the mansion is abandoned, and monsters fight to control the area. To determine who should rule, the monsters must fight each other, regardless of their agenda. Red Scarf must eliminate the remains of Mr Plague’s monster, but things have only gotten worse with the arrival of a werewolf who claims to be the lord of monsters.

Agnostiko VS will feature one-on-one fights with only one life, modern controls, a single-player mode, and local and online multiplayer. The game is targeted to be released in the fourth quarter of 2024 and will be available exclusively for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch.

Players can download the fighting game’s demo from the Xbox Store for a sneak peek.
