Dead Cell’s latest update is called Enter the Panchaku, the 30th one–an impressive number for an indie game released in 2018.

Players can get a Bobby skin with the pink flamehead and the Panchaku–a weapon consisting of two frying pans tied together. It crits when you hit enemies in front, but also can attack enemies in the back. The Panchaku can deflect bombs and projectiles as well. It’s also the first weapon that can move independently, meaning the Panchaku is fully animated and not just reliant on special effects.

The legendary item system has been overhauled as well. In the old system, legendary item’s damage scaled off the two highest stats and purely increased offensive stats. The new legendary system introduces something called affixes. Each legendary weapon will have a legendary affix that cannot be removed or replaced. Some examples of affixes are like the lacerating aura, which makes victims bleed, adds 80% damage to poison targets, and freezes enemies when the effect ends.
