Indie games in the Metroid-vania genre have been increasingly common over the recent years. Most AAA developers have forgotten about the genre’s existence entirely. This lack of big budget support has been the direct cause of some gems that sprout out within the genre, and Rabi-Ribi could be considered part of that group. With a balance of Metroid-vania exploration and bullet-hell style gameplay, Rabi-Ribi is genuinely unique.
The story is fairly simple and follows the rabbit, Erina who somehow turned into an anime girl overnight, and the general public as a whole seems to be pretty cool with it for some reason. With Erina’s newfound human body, she embarks on a quest with the fairy, Ribbon to help defeat the evils lurking within Rabi Rabi island.
