Just in time for the spooky season, we’re excited to share that Echo Generation will launch on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Windows PC on October 21! And, (drum roll please) it will be available with Xbox Game Pass on day one!
Some of you may remember the supernatural world of Echo Generation from the demo in The Game Awards festival and ID@Xbox showcase. Soon, you’ll have the full Echo Generation experience and we can’t wait for you to find out more about the mysteries of Maple Town.
Questions from the demo like “Where are those Christmas lights?” “Why are there so many talking trash pandas?” or “What’s the story with that mysterious crash?” will be answered in a few short weeks.
Set in the ’90s, Echo Generation is a heartwarming story about the supernatural, family, and the nostalgia of growing up in a small town. It has a charming blend of exploration, quests, and unique characters inspired by some of our favorite adventure games we’ve played growing up.
There’s a lot to experience in Echo Generation and we wanted to create our take on the old-school, Paper Mario-style, turn-based combat, crafted with a special Cococucumber twist. With over 30 unique minigames and a charming cast of characters and pets to level up, there are many ways to customize your build to take on dangerous enemies and bosses.
Just like the kids in Echo Generation, our team at Cococucumber are from diverse backgrounds. We wanted to see ourselves represented in the game, so we created a selection of diverse characters for you to select as your hero. Finally, there is one more surprise! Hint: Can you guess who your crush will be?
Echo Generation was created during the pandemic and was a creative outlet for all of us on the team during this time. We look forward to sharing something heartwarming and beautiful with all Xbox fans.
Following Riverbond (2019), Echo Generation is the second title in our Voxel Trilogy; we have pushed our signature 3D pixel look even further with higher resolution models, beautiful environments and character designs that capture the charm of this retro art style.
Get ready to dive into the supernatural. Echo Generation launches October 21 on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Windows PC, and with Xbox Game Pass on day one.
