PlayStation Move-centric fantasy romp Sorcery will be released in the U.S. on May 22, and arrives in Europe on May 23, Sony has announced.

The game was originally unveiled at E3 2010 and went underground for an extended period, before resurfacing last year.

Sorcery has players stepping into the shoes of a young apprentice who must get to grips with the arcane arts in an effort to save his homeland from the dastardly Nightmare Queen. The game takes much of its influence from Irish mythology and includes 12 upgradable spells and hundreds of potions to tinker with.

Gamers will explore five lush realms, each one packing various hazards and enemies to overcome. Sorcery will also offer a unique combo system, allowing players to chain rudimentary spells into powerful combos, as well as freeze and electrocute enemies.

Stay tuned to for more details.
