What is Archvale?

Archvale is a bullet-hell RPG mashup that stands shoulder to shoulder with its obvious inspirations. This combination of genres results in an addictive gameplay loop that also allows players to customise their hero to ultimately defeat the remnants of a once evil King that manifests into the Undying.

Players go from prison to prison looting, crafting and upgrading their equipment and skills to defeat the aforementioned antagonists in a bullet-hell bonanza. There’s also a “Hardcore” mode for players who want more of a challenge and larger maps.

Key Features:

  • Play Your Way. Augment your character via badges, allowing you to create a build that suits your playstyle.
  • Mastery is Key. Skill-based bullet-hell combat will put your weapons of choice to the test and require precision and speed to succeed.
  • Build Your Arsenal. Craft over 200 weapons and armour using items gathered from the environment and from slaying enemies.
  • Explore the World. A host of enemies across diverse environments and classic-inspired dungeons will take you across an ever-changing map where you will find unique resources needed to complete your journey.
  • Discover the Truth. Uncover the dark lore of the world on your quest to unearth the arch to the fabled world of Archvale.

Archvale SRG#67 Unboxing


The first thing buyers will see is a lovely worded “Thank You” card. Super Rare always shine with its genuine yet passionate approach to games preservation. Archvale is nicely bubble wrapped and packaged for those collectors out there.


It’s the small things that count in all things, and Super Rare has presentation locked down. After taking off the bubblewrap, buyers are presented with a clear yet strong plastic wrap parcel with a well designed Super Rare sticker holding it all together.

After sliding out the Archvale physical game, buyers will notice a nice Super Rare sticker and a pack of Archvale themed trading cards. It’s all looking good so far, but let’s take a closer look at those cards.

As usual, Super Rare packs some amazing artwork into these collectable trading cards. Things like this are, for the most part, forgotten on AAA releases that don’t have a very costly collectors edition option. Let’s not forget how well priced Super Rare releases are too.

Opening the Archvale game case reveals some beautiful inside artwork, just like the outer cover. Besides the game cartridge itself, the biggest treat is the manual-sized artbook that contains pixel art of the various monsters and other NPCs players will encounter in-game.

All in all, Archvale SRG#67 is a beautiful release, did you get yours? Let us know on Twitter!
