Walnut Creek, Calif. (July 23, 2020) – Indie publisher Modus Games and developer eXiin today share a new features trailer alongside the news that Ary and the Secret of Seasons, the captivating action-adventure following a young girl and her awakened ability to shift the seasons around her, will launch September 1 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
Today’s announcement joins Ary via a new trailer as she dashes, climbs, and dives through the gorgeous world of Valdi, a lush but troubled land that’s lost its once perfect balance of eternally consistent climates.

Using spring’s sphere can cause vines to grow in order to traverse up once-insurmountable cliffs, and refreshing summer pools allow Ary to swim across yawning chasms.

Ary and the Secret of Seasons finds Ary faced with a monumental challenge as she strives to aid Valdi’s Guardians of Seasons, setting out on a journey no other inhabitant of Valdi can complete.

By becoming the Guardian of Winter, Ary gains the ability to manipulate the seasons around her. Ary will learn to control the seasons and use them to defeat enemies, overcome obstacles, and solve complex puzzles on her adventure across Valdi.
Long ago, the world of Valdi was threatened by an evil mage. After a great struggle, he was defeated by the Legendary Warrior and sealed inside the Vault, imprisoned for all eternity. To ensure the mage’s imprisonment, four great sages swore to keep watch and protect the Vault. They formed the original Guardians of Seasons, a secretive organization now steeped in history and legend.
After a mysterious force throws the seasons of Valdi into disarray, Ary decides to assist the Guardians of Seasons and sets out to find the source of the mayhem. Using her wits and courage, Ary will have to overcome monstrous enemies, secret plots, and stuffy traditions to save Valdi and bring balance to the world once more.
