Co-op blast 'em up 'Nine Parchments' launches on Xbox One in March

Nine Parchments is a co-op blast 'em up game from Frozenbyte. Frozenbyte is the developer behind the acclaimed Trine franchise and its specialty are mystical experiences.

Nine Parchments follows a group of runaway apprentice wizards who want to complete their spellbooks by going after the lost Nine Parchments. As the would-be wizards rapidly acquire powerful new spells without learning proper safety measures, it's natural their hasty progress results in plenty of deaths. You have to work together with other players in order to prevail over the many challenges each level presents.

According to the developer, Nine Parchments combines real-time shooting with role-playing elements. The goal is to level up your character and collect loot, filling your wardrobe with a variety of hats and powerful implements.

The game is coming to Xbox One on March 7, 2018 and will priced at $19.99. Nine Parchments runs at 4K 60 FPS on Xbox One X and 1080p 60 FPS on PlayStation 4 Pro (PS4 Pro). In an interview between the studio and WCCFtech, the resolution and frame rates on various consoles were revealed.

We won't have HDR support, but Xbox One X and PC will be capable of 4K... Here's the different specs on various platforms: 1080p 60 FPS on PS4 and PS4 Pro, 1080p 30 FPS on Switch docked, 720p 30 FPS undocked, 1080p 60 FPS on Xbox One with dynamic resolution scaling, and 4K 60 FPS on Xbox One X.
