Solar Ash Kingdom, developer Heart Machine’s long-awaited follow-up to Hyper Light Drifter, was just officially announced. While few details have been revealed, the announcement was made alongside a debut trailer and a short interview from creator Alx Preston. A successor of sorts to the studio’s previous title, this new project diverges from the pixel art stylized after the SNES era and goes instead in the direction of full-on modern 3D graphics! This project has, in the past, been only hinted…

Welcome back to another (early!) edition of Inspired By Zelda! This week on the docket… Aragami: Shadow Edition for the Nintendo Switch, with the original Aragami title also available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, developed and published by Lince Works. Now, I should probably state right away that this isn’t as “Zelda-y” as I kind of thought it would be. It would probably be more apt to say that this game caught my eye because the art style looked…

Hello everyone! After a month off after the holidays, Inspired By Zelda is back and kicking off 2019 with a flurry of great games that pay homage to the Legend of Zelda series! We’re diving right in this month into the swashbuckling adventure that is Oceanhorn! Let’s go! Oceanhorn: Monsters of the Sea, developed by Finnish-based studios Cornfox & Bros. and published by FDG Entertainment, and available on Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and mobile, is a Zelda-like game in…

Nine years after the original Darksiders was released, the remastered version, Warmastered Edition, was announced as coming to Nintendo Switch. The game is set to arrive April 2nd both physically and digitally, and it will be listed at $29.99 USD. The Darksiders franchise, created by Vigil Games (now developed by Gunfire Games), has seen three installments so far, with the third launched not too long ago in November. So far, Darksiders has yet to make a big splash on Nintendo consoles, with the first…

German video game publisher Headup Games has recently announced the upcoming release of Windscape, a first-person, adventure-style game that will be available on the Nintendo Switch on March 27th. Windscape developer Dennis Witte wanted to incorporate elements from The Legend of Zelda into his creation, as he is in fact a huge fan of the series!  The result of this passion for Zelda and other fantasy titles led to an open world game filled with monsters to fight, puzzles to solve, and NPC’s to interact with. Windscape is set on a…

It is official: a press release by studio Analgesic Productions confirms that a sequel to the 2013 RPG Anodyne is coming to Windows, Mac, and Linux this May. The game will be titled Anodyne 2: Return to Dust. The game will include 2D dungeons (a la A Link to the Past), as well as 3D environments between which the player (as Nova the Nano Cleaner) will switch. To access the 2D sections, Nova must find characters in the 3D world, who are infected by…

There’s no other way to put it: Anodyne is fricken’ crazy. Don’t get the wrong idea about that either – it’s crazy in a wonderful, beautiful way. But after finishing the main campaign and exploring the land of Anodyne (aptly named The Land), I can’t really think of a better way to put it. But let’s back up for a second and start from the beginning. The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is one of my favorite Zelda titles. Part…

It was announced in August of this year that the Zelda-inspired title Aragami: Shadow Edition is to come to the Nintendo Switch. Yet no release date was presented, at least until now. We have learned that this game will visit the Switch on February 22, 2019. Video game publisher and distributor Merge Games has also made a physical signature edition bundle, which includes all sorts of cool bonuses, such as two enamel pin badges, a soundtrack CD, and even an…

It’s finally here! After what seems like an excruciatingly long wait, Link, Zelda, and the rest of the gang are all set to do battle in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate! Smash has always been one of my favorite series, and ever since the days of the Nintendo 64 version, I fantasized about who I would want to fight as in the next game. With the passing years, Smash Bros. has evolved from a neat collection of Nintendo lore to an…

I’m a weird kind of guy. With more and more people moving towards the convenience and affordability of buying their video games digitally, I’ve started buying more and more physical copies of my games – and if one doesn’t exist, I go so far as to make a case for it myself. My Switch shelf is full of cases with no games inside of it – objects who’s literal job is to sit there collecting dust, giving no one but…
