Here's one to add to your video game watch list: Necropolis is a stylish, hardcore dungeon-diving game from Harebrained Schemes, the studio behind the magnificent cyberpunk title Shadowrun Returns. It was originally due to hit PC and Mac on March 17th, but now Dark Souls publisher Bandai Namco is involved and the times, they are a-changing.

Necropolis is now due to hit PC, Mac, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in the summer, with Bandai handling the console publishing duties. Harebrained Schemes is self-publishing the game on Steam.

"While we really hate to slip a release date, we know from experience that doing a console release right adds a significant amount of development work," Harebrained Schemes President Mitch Gitelman says in a press release. "So we believe this is absolutely the right decision, and that the additional time will make for an even better Necropolis for consoles and for PC."

Necropolis is an action title where players have just one life to defeat hordes of ghastly beasties in ever-changing, procedurally generated dungeons. It features crafting and four-player drop-in co-op, plus an art style that is both moody and adorable at the same time. It looks like an effortlessly cool game, which should make it perfect for the summer.
