Ziggurat Interactive is bringing back a top-selling title of the Dreamcast era. Made in partnership with the team behind the renowned Devil Engine (Devil May Cry) and featuring the writing talent of Miles Luna, co-creator of RWBY, Slave Zero™ X is an exciting new entry set in the same world of the original Slave Zero™ (1999). Today, we’re revealing another of the accomplished voice actors lending their talents to this fast-paced, hard-hitting, biopunk action game — Mara Junot.
Check out the voice actor reveal trailer below:
Mara Junot, known for her work that spans film and AAA video games including God of War: Ragnarök, Diablo Immortal, Teen Titans Go!, and Destiny 2: The Witch Queen, joins the cast of Slave Zero™ X as one of the five calamities, Enyo.
One of the Five Calamities Shou will face in his journey, Enyo is an obsessive gun collector and killer for hire with fearsome accuracy — nicknamed “Beloved by the Bullet”. A firearm expert born out of a lifetime of mercenary work and a deep understanding of the mechanism and maintenance of her weaponry, her Exo-Suit and training also give her unparalleled mobility to get to any vantage point.
Enyo is the second member of the Five Calamities, the innermost circle of generals who answer only to the Sovereign Khan (SovKhan). She is cunning, sadistic, and takes pride in collecting Old World firearms and ammunition. Her loyalty to the SovKhan is temporary, as the only person she trusts is herself.
Enyo resents the biotechnology favored by the SovKhan, and sorely mistrusts his engineers. Her equipment is solely hers and purely mechanical, a rarity in the Megacity. Modern personal armor is designed to repel blows from a blade, not a bullet's increasingly rare penetrating sting. She takes full advantage of this while counting every shot taken, tallying her treasure and spending only when necessary.
The newest title in the classic Dreamcast Slave Zero™ franchise will bring a whole new side-scrolling, hack-n-slash experience to fans of the original game. A satisfyingly punishing game, Slave Zero™ X sees players donning a death-dealing biosuit to do battle against the violent forces of the tyrannical SovKhan. Featuring multiple gameplay modes and a variety of futuristic 2.5D dystopian urban levels to battle through, players will string together brutal combos and fight through waves of genetically enhanced biopunk opponents —all to the tune of a gnarly synth soundtrack.
Features of Slave Zero™ X include:
- Different Modes to Mutilate: Play through the story, build your combo-crushing skills in training mode, or test your might in the post-story Bloody Palace Mode
- Hack-n-Slash ‘n Slash ‘n Slash…: Chain together lethal attack combos with your sword and an array of explosive ordinance while leaping, sprinting, and flipping your way through a grim biopunk world
- An Environment Worthy of HR Geiger: Conquer mini-bosses and climactic arch-villains in unforgettable combat sequences
- Brutal Battles and Cutthroat Missions: Battle your way through massive levels, mazes, and boss-rushes in a dynamic 2.5D world
- Blood-Soaked and Synth-Soaked: Immerse yourself in a world of heavy Drum ‘n Bass and industrial tracks that get more intense as the action heats up
Slave Zero™ X is slated to release in 2023, and is available to wishlist now on Steam.
