Sorcery Release Date Announced, Screenshots & Concept Art Released

Sony has announced the release date for PlayStation Move title Sorcery, in addition to releasing screenshots and concept art from the game.

On the PS Blog, SCEA Product Marketing Manager Jefferson Dong announced that Sorcery will be made available at North American retailers on Tuesday, May 22, 2012. Sorcery is the story of a young sorcerer’s apprentice named Finn, who’s trying to save his realm from the darkness of the Nightmare Queen.

Sorcery Creative Director Brian Upton gives a more thorough explanation of the story:

Finn is in trouble. First, he accidentally blew up his master’s alchemy lab. Then he’s let Erline, his master’s magical cat, talk him into trespassing in the realm of the dead. Now he’s unleashed an ancient universe-destroying evil that won’t stop until everything he cares about is utterly annihilated. It has not been a good day.

Even though he’s only an apprentice, Finn must find a way to defeat the Nightmare Queen before she destroys the human world. To do this he must plunge deep into the realm of faerie — the Endless Stair, the Faerie Forest, the Slumbering Palace. With Erline travelling at his side he must master powerful and arcane magical spells, and use them to overcome the strange and twisted servants of Nightmare. He must solve challenging puzzles, and decipher the mysteries of alchemy. He must discover the secrets of the Nightmare Queen’s power and undo the damage that she has wrought.

And, above all, he must earn the right to be called … sorcerer.
