Zorro: The Chronicles
Based on the 2015 French animated series of the same name, Zorro: The Chronicles is a third-person action-adventure game with a heavy emphasis on stealth. Zorro and his sister can be played in the classic way dressed in black, with the trailer showing them sneakily around town and attacking unsuspecting opponents.

Despite his increasingly niche nature in Western popular culture, Zorro has had several video games over the years. The first of these was a 1985 platformer game developed by Datasoft, which was released on various consoles such as Commodore 64 and early Atari consoles. The game received pretty decent reviews, although the same can’t be said for the last time. Fox titles for DOS and Playstation 2. The fate of Zorro, released for the Wii, was a buggy and poorly developed mess, although the DS derivative Search for justice received better reviews.
As John Gertz, President of Zorro Productions, Inc. put it, “Zorro is a brand whose interactive life began a long time ago with games for Atari, Nintendo, and other platforms. We are very excited to see that the new CG animated series, “Zorro the Chronicles”, will now be adapted for the new consoles of the 21st century ”.

Hopefully, gamers will enjoy a swashbuckling good time when the game launches this fall for the Playstation 4, Playstation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, PC, Mac, and Google Stadia.
