Oceanhorn sequel bound for Nintendo Switch this Fall
Hack and slash your way through the Apple Arcade prequel, now on Nintendo Switch.
Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm, a prequel to Oceanhorn: Monsters of Uncharted Seas, is headed to Nintendo Switch this Fall, developer Cornfox & Brothers announced today. A previous version of the game has been available on Apple Arcade since last year, where it seems mostly to have pleased critics.
Oceanhorn 2 features a 3D world with an expansive landscape that's ripe for exploration and hacking and slashing, rather obviously inspired by various entries in The Legend of Zelda franchise. The visual style, for instance, seems to have taken a few notes from Breath of the Wild.
"Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm is a game made by Nintendo fans, for Nintendo fans," according to Heikki Repo, the creative director at Cornfox & Brothers. "We've been able to create something new from the strong background that we established with our previous game, Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas, and Oceanhorn 2 is our love letter to the games that we grew up with, combining that beloved nostalgia with exciting new mechanics to give it an original spin."
