The road to enter Valhalla is certainly not an easy one. Norse warrior Thora finds this out firsthand in her quest to prove herself to the Gods. The latest obstacle revealed to be standing in her way is the Storm Jotun, Hagalaz.
Hagalaz is the third boss revealed for action-exploration title Jotun, coming to Steam Fall 2015. Jotun is the creation of Thunder Lotus Games and casts players in the role of Thora, after she died an inglorious death and must now prove her worthiness to enter Valhalla. In the Storm Jotun Reveal video below, Thora squares off against Hagalaz who is made up of light, thunder, and clouds.
The Storm Jotun is able to summon powerful lightning bolts, teleport to strategic locations, and duplicate herself to unleash all her inner rage. Watch the video below and see why only the fiercest warriors are able to dine with Odin in the halls of Valhalla.
Jotun is a game I’ve had my eye on for awhile now. I’m a mark for hand-drawn animation in video games and the art-style displayed in this title is simply gorgeous. Much like another hand-drawn animated title I am looking forward to, Cuphead, the boss battles in this game look incredible. It is no wonder it has drawn comparisons to Shadow of the Colossus due to the sheer scale of the bosses on display. Right now my prayers go out to Odin for an eventual release on consoles for this non-PC gamer.
