The Nobody Saves the World release date has been delayed to early 2022, Drinkbox Studios announced during the Gamescom 2021 Opening Night Live pre-show Wednesday.

In addition to the launch date news, the new Nobody Saves the World trailer showed off the game’s online co-op feature, which will be available on day one.

Nobody Saves the World will be dropping on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC (via Xbox and Steam), as well as on Xbox Game Pass, on day one when it releases.

From the developers of Guacamelee! 1 + 2 comes Nobody Saves the World, a new twist on 2D action RPGs, in which players can shapeshift into more than 15 different character Forms, each with their own unique gameplay mechanics.

Pun intended, players will begin their adventure as Nobody, a pale androgynous humanoid who wakes up without any memories (or pants). Soon after, they'll find a powerful magic wand, allowing Nobody to change into a Slug, a Ghost, a Dragon and more.

Alone or with a friend, it is on the player(s) to mix and match over 80 different abilities of the Forms to explore a vast overworld, complete with challenging quests and difficulty-evolving dungeons.

Players who do choose to take part in the two-player co-op online multiplayer mode can be rest assured that their progress while playing with a friend will also carry over to their single-player saves.

Nobody Saves the World will feature an original soundtrack from acclaimed composer Jim Guthrie, who some may recognize from Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP (2011).
