Keylocker, an upcoming JRPG that blends turn-based combat and rhythm, is set to launch soon.

This is after its creators finally revealed the game's release window during the recent ID@Xbox Digital Showcase. Publisher Serenity Forge and Moonana Games announced they will release Keylocker this Summer.

In addition, developers from Moonana Games said they will be porting the title to Xbox consoles. The upcoming Xbox edition will also come out simultaneously with its PC launch.

"We got to announce this news today at an ID@Xbox event which is pretty big for us, this event is quite eventful, after all," they wrote on the game's official Steam page.

Creators described Keylocker as a 'groundbreaking turn-based rhythm JRPG'. Illustrated in a pixel-art style, it transports players to a cyberpunk world.

The game takes place in a dystopian metropolis called Saturn. There, players take on the shoes of the protagonist named BOBO. In Saturn, music has been suppressed by a tyrannical regime. A fearless singer and songwriter, BOBO then takes on a quest to bring music back to life in Saturn.

"With every piece in place, she's out to break some laws, and discover the truth behind the essence of music, the Keylocker," developers said.

The core gameplay of Keylocker involved real-time rhythm mechanics and turn-based combat. This means players must strategically execute moves in a rhythm game style. As BOBO, they need to harness the power of music to defeat foes.

Keylocker also drew inspiration from legendary JRPGS such as the Mario & Luigi RPG series and Chrono Trigger. The game will allow players to explore Saturn's sprawling cities, forge alliances, uncover secrets, and challenge the status quo.

Meanwhile, Moonana Games said they are putting the finishing touches on the game. "We’ll have more about the game’s launch to share in the near future," they said. / ###
