Silent Hope is looking like it will be one of the more unique Action RPGs to release in a while, as all characters in the game are mute. Apart from that, players will get to use seven heroes to save a medieval fantasy kingdom, and there is an abyss to explore in which they'll find a hidden king.
Silent Hope gameplay details: The Abyss, Base Camp, & More
Silent Hope is an Action RPG developed by XSeed Games, known for their work on the Rune Factory series. The combat in this game will mostly take place in The Abyss, which will feature various monsters the seven heroes of the game will need to defeat to progress.
In terms of story, the premise is the citizens of this kingdom had their words taken away. As they progress, the seven heroes learn more about why, as well as encounter the princess of the land who is encased in a crystal of her own tears.
2D gameplay with an overhead perspective is featured, and heroes will each have their own specific battle class—specializing in swords, bows, or magic.

The Abyss appears to be condensed with enemies. I was surprised to see in the trailer how many enemies would attack a character at a given time; players are going to need to be quick to survive down there. Another cool feature: the layout of the Abyss will be different every time the player enters it.
Another key feature is the base camp. There, players can grow crops and use materials found in the Abyss to create new, stronger weapons, while each hero will have a specific job to do, ranging from Cook to Alchemist.
When will Silent Hope release?
Silent Hope will release on the Nintendo Switch on October 3, 2023, right in between Tears of the Kingdom and the Pokémon DLC releases.
