Sydney Hunter and the Curse of the Mayan Confirmed for Xbox and PlayStation Consoles Feb. 6

PHOENIX – Jan. 23, 2024 – CollectorVision Games today announces its beloved 8-bit action-adventure platformer game Sydney Hunter and the Curse of the Mayan will be coming to Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 on Feb. 6. The game is an homage to classic action-adventure platformer games with its solo-player hair-raising gameplay, a storyline steeped in Mayan mythology, treacherous jungles, and a catchy soundtrack. With the addition of these consoles, Sydney Hunter and the Curse of the Mayan is now available across all major video game platforms.

Sydney Hunter and the Curse of the Mayan on Xbox and PlayStation platforms include a hidden interactive feature to sleuth out and discover. If lucky, eagle-eyed players will unearth a hidden area and meet Yuki, a fun and familiar character from FX Unit Yuki: The Henshin Engine, as they traverse through the Mayan pyramid.

In celebration of this significant milestone launch, Sydney Hunter and the Curse of the Mayan will be available at a 30% discount off its MSRP of $9.99 on the Steam Store and Nintendo eShop from Feb. 6 to Feb. 20.

Players take on the role of supreme adventurer Sydney Hunter, a deft explorer who by sheer luck finds himself trapped inside a massive Mayan pyramid. He soon discovers that the “Feathered Serpent” Kukulkan has broken up the sacred Haab calendar into seven individual pieces and scattered them throughout the pyramid. With the support of the local Mayan population, Sydney Hunter must put the calendar back together and defeat Kukulkan to return peace and balance to the world. Two unique endings await players, depending on the decisions they make in the game.
