Infernax, the retro action-adventure lets you input the Konami Code when it releases this Valentine’s Day

From Press Release:

Infernax, a blood-splattered action adventure from publisher The Arcade Crew and developer Berzerk Studio, channels the spirit of the Zelda and Castlevania games of olde. But this homage to the NES greats pays tribute to more than just classic adventures …

Recalling one of gaming’s most famous codes at the title screen trades the mace of Infernax’s starring knight out for a devastating machine gun. Arming players with 30 lives, unique skills, and of course jump flips, this impressively detailed easter egg lets sharpshooters blast through Infernax’s entire campaign with firepower reminiscent of Contra.

See how the Konami Code alters Infernax’s demon slaying – and even its soundtrack – in today’s new trailer:

Infernax is reaching Steam, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Game Pass (Xbox & PC) on Feb. 14, but reviews are already praising its inventive take on retro adventures.
