Boulder, Colo. (June 4, 2024) – In a blend of rhythm and turn-based action, the power of music becomes the path to liberation in the highly anticipated JRPG Keylocker. Announced today by Moonana Games (Virgo Versus The Zodiac) and Serenity Forge (Doki Doki Literature Club Plus!), Keylocker is set to hit PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch in addition to the previously announced Xbox Series X|S and PC in late Summer 2024.

Today’s platform announcement was accompanied by a new trailer showcasing the game’s rhythm-based combat, sprawling cyberpunk world and absolute slap of a soundtrack:

In the dystopian metropolis of Saturn, a tyrannical regime has silenced all sound - making music is against the law. B0B0, a bold singer and songwriter must take the fate of Saturn into her hands to dismantle the corrupt government through tactical battles, navigating real-time executions of moves in a rhythm game style to triumph over adversaries. Uncover the mysteries of the city and its overlords and headline concerts with her band’s pulse-pounding electronic jams.

Inspired by classics like the Mario & Luigi RPG series and Chrono Trigger, Keylocker effortlessly combines the charm of physical comedy with rich storytelling and challenging strategic mechanics. This genre-defying mix of JRPG, narrative, and rhythm elements promises an unforgettable experience.
