The Fallen One seeks revenge in the latest animated trailer for the Dead Cells: Fatal Falls DLC, and the overly-attached flying sword is there to help him. Of course.

A new DLC for Dead Cells has come out yesterday for all platforms, and Motion Twin and Evil Empire have rolled out a super-cute animated trailer in honour of Fatal Falls

The trailer is so well done, we thought "We want more of this. We want Dead Cells anime!" as soon as it was over. 

Plus, we just want someone to look at us the way the overly-attached sword looks at The Beheaded guy.

When it comes to the DLC itself, Fatal Falls brings refreshment for the old Dead Cells players, and for the new ones, there is also a bundle option, in which you get the base game and all the DLCs released so far:

  • Rise of the Giant
  • The Bad Seed
  • Fatal Falls

The Fatal Falls DLC introduces a significant amount of new content for fans including two new mid-game biomes, a killer new boss and a slew of new weapons and items. The gameplay reveal trailer released today showcases new biomes The Fractured Shrines and The Undying Shores as well as a cranky new boss - The Scarecrow, who existing fans may recognize as the Royal Gardener gone wrong with Malaise.

The two new biomes are parallels to the ‘Stilt Village’, ‘Clock Tower’ and ‘Time Keeper’ areas and are intended as alternate paths to spice up your mid-game runs. Along the new paths fans can expect to encounter a homicidal pet sword (why not?) and new slightly psychotic enemies like the Myopic Crow, the Clumsy Swordsman, the Compulsive Gravedigger and a lot more (eight total) culminating with the final boss, The Scarecrow. (Might want to keep an eye on those exploding mushrooms when you encounter him.)

And what’s an update without new weapons? Fatal Falls’ new maniacal sword (did we mention it flies?) is designed to bring Brutality players a real counterpart to the Great Owl and Mushroom Boi. Scythes, undoubtedly one of the more iconic weapons in existence, have also been added - they are attracted to enemies and will follow you around a bit. Seven new weapons in total have arrived: Lightning Rods, Ferryman’s Lantern, Scarecrow’s Sickles, Iron Staff, Snake Fangs, Serenade and Cocoon. Each one will help you in different areas of the two new biomes. And because we want you to feel good AND look good, a total of 10 new outfits have also been added to the update.
