If you’re craving a new 2D Zelda game for the Nintendo Switch, then I may have the fix for you until we get that Zelda game. Blossom Tales is a beautiful 2D classic action-adventure game set in the Kingdom of Blossom. You take control of Lily, Knight of the Rose, as she traverses through a vast open game world in an attempt to save Blossom from encroaching darkness.
The game has 8-bit style visuals and looks straight up like Link to the Past (even though that game was 16-bits). There are 4 dungeons to conquer as you solve various puzzles and defeat enemies/bosses. Along the way, you will acquire various items that will impact your gameplay and fighting style.
The game is published by FDG Entertainment (the same company that brought you Oceanhorn) and it was developed by Castle Pixel, LLC. It should offer around 15+ hours of gameplay and will be released December 21st, 2017 exclusively on the Nintendo Switch. It will cost you $14.99. This is a game I am definitely buying!
