Children of Morta publisher reveals price and box art

7 June 2019 – by Jack Taylor

Children of Morta publisher 11 bit studios has revealed the game's digital pricing and its new packaging artwork.

Currently confirmed for a summer release, Children of Morta is the latest release from 11 bit studios, and is developed by Dead Mage.

When it releases digitally on platforms including Nintendo eShop and the PlayStation Store, it will cost $21.99 in the US and €21.99 in Europe, with commensurate pricing expected in the UK and other regions.

A brand new piece of artwork - seen above - has also been revealed, and will serve as the game's box art when it launches at retail; this will take place alongside the digital release, with the retail release handled by Merge Games.

A summary of the game's story is below:

Children of Morta sets its story in a distant land but copes with themes closer to our daily lives that one would expect. It is a story of the simple emotions we all know so well - and value more than sometimes we dare to admit - love and hope, longing and uncertainty, ultimately loss and the sacrifices we are willing to make to save the ones we care the most for. Embark on the adventure of an extraordinary family of heroes. With the Corruption spreading through the land, the guardians of Mount Morta have to stand up against an ancient evil. But... it's not a story about saving the universe. It's a story about a valiant family standing together while the world around them is being devoured by darkness.

Children of Morta launches this summer for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
