The announcement of Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree, the DLC for the From Software game, has caused a sensation. And with good reason. Elden Ring was the 2022 GOTY, sold like crazy, and is the biggest title From Software has ever made. That doesn’t mean there won’t be people affected by this. Because a release like Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree is going to overshadow everything that happens around it.

Jyamma Games are perfectly aware of this. That’s why they have announced that they are going to delay the release of their first game, Enotria: The Last Song. The reason is because the game was going to be released on the same day as the Elden Ring DLC, a move that would be suicidal.

In addition, in this case, the delay is more than justified. Enotria: The Last Song is a soulslike game that draws from Italian folklore and aims to create a Souls-like experience, with an emphasis on character strategy flexibility and the ability to modify the environmental state. The type of game that would undoubtedly be overshadowed by Elden Ring.

However, that doesn’t mean we won’t know about Enotria soon. The studio has announced that they will reveal the game’s release date on March 21st during the Future Game Show. If you’re interested in this interesting twist on souslikes from Italy, Enotria: The Last Song will be available for PC, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PlayStation 5.
