Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards was revealed by Digiart Interactive and N-Fusion Interactive, an action RPG based on acclaimed comic book heroine, Aluna. It will arrive on Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC in 2020. Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards combines Diablo-style gameplay with the revisionist mythology style of God of War. Aluna is based on Inca lore and will feature mythical gods, beasts, and atles that formed the culture of 16th-Century Colombia.
Aluna was created by actress Paula Garces (Harold & Kumar series, On My Block, Clockstoppers, The Shield) and Antonio Hernandez. After starring in a series of comic books, Aluna grew greater popularity after becoming a playable character in S2 Games’ popular MOBA Heroes of Newerth, where she was played by Paula Garces herself. More recently, she’s starred in the ongoing comic book saga, The World of Aluna, written by Assassin’s Creed and Batman: Arkham Origins scribes Ryan Galletta, Dooma Wendschuch, and Corey May.
Paula Garces, creator of Aluna discussed her creation:
“Every time I’d go to Comic-Con I see throngs of Latino fans, yet there’s next to no latino superheroes. It seemed like there was this huge population who would like to see themselves reflected through comics and games, and simply weren’t, as no one was making these. So we decided to create our own latino heroine in a series that focuses specifically on the colonization of South America. And thus, Aluna was born!”
