The Plucky Squire Trailer Details Key Characters, Showcases More Gameplay

Meet protagonist Jot, his childhood friend Violet, easygoing mountain troll Thrash, bad-tempered sorcerer Humgrump, and others.

The Plucky Squire turned quite a few heads with its announcement last year, and though details on the charming action-adventure title have been scarce since then, developer All Possible Futures and publisher Devolver Digital recently debuted a new gameplay trailer for the title at Sony’s PlayStation Showcase, accompanied by an article published on the PlayStation Blog that reveals new details on the game’s cast of characters.

Starring as the protagonist of The Plucky Squire will be Jot, the titular squire himself, who is described as “a brave adventurer and the champion of the land” who also “details his escapades in a series of novels that are bestsellers among the people of Mojo.”

Joining him are his childhood friend Violet, an artist with no shortage of creativity; Thrash, described as “an easy-going mountain Troll and a wicked metal drummer”; Moonbeard, who is “a wise sorcerer who also likes to DJ in his spare time”; Pip, a little mouse and Moonbeard’s “buddy and helper”; and Humgrump, a bad-tempered sorcerer who will serve as the primary antagonist.

Check out the trailer below to get a good look at the characters and new gameplay footage.

The Plucky Squire is due out sometime this year for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC. A Devolver Direct event is scheduled for next month, so we’re likely to see more of the game in the near future.
