Zorro has been a long-standing character in the realm of fiction and has spread into other forms of media, including the 2015 animated series. And now that animated series is getting its own game. Publisher Nacon and developer BKOM Studios have announced Zorro: The ChroniclesZorro: The Chronicles, a new game that will launch later this year in June, on the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store, as well as on Mac and Stadia.

BKOM released a small trailer that shows off some of the game’s melee combat, characters, and acrobatic traversal. It’s also a fairly dialogue-free trailer, but it gives vague hints at the story and its cast of characters, most of which return from the aforementioned animated series of the same name.

The game centers around Don Diego de la Vega, the beloved son of a respected landlord who returns to California after living in Spain. Upon his return, however, he becomes the iconic Zorro to combat all the injustice he witnesses. Zorro then goes around and takes down corrupt officials, steals back treasures for the people, and gets into some big swordfights along the way.

Nacon and BKOM Studios didn’t offer too much more insight into the game, but did tease out some details. Players choose their own playstyle and can be loud and brash or more stealthy and take opponents by surprise. Zorro’s sister Ines is also a playable character for those who want a female lead.
