Open Beta for Lost Reavers, a Free-To-Play Game for Wii U, Now Available in the eShop

Take Lost Reavers for a spin in advance of its April 28 launch date.


Have you been yearning for more four-player co-op action games for your Wii U? You're in luck. Bandai Namco is gearing up to release Lost Reavers on April 28, and has released an open beta for the game on the Wii U eShop.

A hack-and-slash adventure, Lost Reavers lets you band with up to three other players to clear dungeons of monster and baubles. Dungeons are riddled with enemies and traps, and a big bad boss at the end to test your mettle.

However, sending a dungeon's boss to meet its maker is only one challenge among many. "Through all of these challenges, one of the brave four must bring the treasure hoard safely back home by using only their wits and their friends to survive," explains a press release released earlier today.

Lost Reavers gives you four characters to choose from, each with unique abilities, strengths, and weaknesses. Sayuri brandishes samurai swords, Victoria dual-wields pistols, Dwayne never goes anywhere without heavy weapons, and the fourth character, who wears a mask to hide his or her identity, carts several types of weapons into battle.
