Maven the Lynx 4 is a near-future 3D Platformer sequel of Maven the Lynx, Back to Action, and Dimension Twist. It is the seventh major entry in the main series. It is the first sequel of the original trilogy to be on the Nintendo Wii U. It will utilized an all new co-op multiplayer system; a revamped online mode and physics system.

In the upcoming game, Maven's past will come back to haunt him when he and and his sidekick/best buddy, Circut embark on a dangerous quest in a new world to stop a new enemy who knows Maven's past. This game will be the first of a new trilogy in the Maven series entitled the The Harbinger Trilogy.

The tagline for the game is "The Lynx Revolution Begins".



A year after the events of Dimension Twist, Maven is haunted by images of his parents and ponders if their death was never a accident. As he searches for the truth, Maven gets a message sent by a mysterious figure known as the Harbinger. The message sends Maven and Circuit to the island world of Lumen where they stumble upon a dangerous plot to overtake the island. Maven and Circuit seek help from old allies and new; as they face off against the shadowy organization led by the enigmatic Atlas—to Maven's shock knows much more about Maven's family past than Maven himself.


The gameplay returns to the heavily, traditional platformer as Maven's goal again is to collect stars; each stars are different colors ranging to their amount (yellow=1, blue=5, green=2, red=10, purple=15, orange=20, white=25). The white stars are rare to find throughout the game. Getting 100 heals him and get him a new life; at the end of the game, the main amount to get a huge upgrade is about 50,000 stars. As well to collecting stars, Maven has to find the 150 Lumen Badges, which are spread everywhere in the game and thus serving as Maven's second main goal.

The game can be controlled either using the Wii U GamePad, Wii Remotes, and/or Wii U Pro Controller.

Revamped physics

The Spiral physics system that was introduced in Dimension Twist returns with a more revamped focus on movement. Now using the Wii U touchpad, the player can control Maven's movements in the air with his new "Mavglider" and hover on land with the new "Mavboard".

Upgradable Weapon system

The weapon system returns with several new weapons and upgrades from old favorites. Favorites like the "Spiral Twister" (shoot powerful tornadoes), "InvisSheild" (cloaks its user), "Hoverrangs", "The DangerSac", "The Twisterangs", "Elemental Bombs" (blast fire, water, lighting, or earth) all return.

New weapons include the "Slidehawk" (shoots a mud trail where you enemies slip and fall down), "Turnaround-Spinner" (reverse the landscape; Maven will need the "Gravity Boots" to use the Spinner), "The Rammy" (a ram faced hammer that can break rocks and enemies), "

Lumen Badges

Like the Mod Stones, Nexus crystals, and Sparks, find the 150 Lumen Badges is Maven's second goal. The Lumen Badges are trinkets that represent something of the world of Lumen. To gain the badges, Maven can explore the world and come across them, be received by the folks by doing many tasks, winning mini-games, and defeating bosses.

Co-Op Multiplayer

The game will introduce a all new co-op multi-player system for the first time in the main series; where more players can join the primary player in the Adventure Mode. A maximum of five players can be used.

Maven can travel throughout the island much easier with the Mavglider and Mavboard; Circuit can travel with his jet wings. The land will be separated into five areas:

  • Lumen City (central area where the Lumen Fortress and the main people resided)
  • North Lumen (the mountainous region of the island)
  • East Lumen (the jungle region of the island)
  • South Lumen (the sea region of the island)
  • West Lumen (the desert region of the island)

There is a sixth area underneath Lumen which is where the enemies surfaces; during near the last act, Maven and Circuit will have to travel to Dark Lumen.

Johto Island will be seen in the beginning.
