Indie development team Cornfox & Brothers are going to be porting their action role-playing game Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm to the Nintendo Switch this Fall via the Nintendo eShop. The game- inspired by The Legend of Zelda series- is currently an Apple Arcade exclusive and is the prequel to Oceanhorn: Monsters of Uncharted Seas. Both Oceanhorn 2 and its predecessor have been well received by critics and audiences. The inspiration from the Zelda games is also significant, especially to the latest game in the series: Breath of the Wild. The success of the series and the closeness to one of the most popular Nintendo franchises of all time makes a Nintendo Switch port the next logical step for the Oceanhorn series.

Helsinki, Finland — August 11th, 2020 — Independent developer Cornfox & Brothers today announced that their action fantasy RPG, Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm, is coming to Nintendo Switch this Fall. Currently available on Apple Arcade, Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm has received critical acclaim in its beautiful 3D open world reimagining of its fantasy landscape, encouraging endless exploration and nostalgic immersion for budding adventurers.

Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm is a game made by Nintendo fans, for Nintendo fans,” said Heikki Repo, Creative Director of 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.”

Prequel to the acclaimed Oceanhorn: Monsters of Uncharted Seas, Oceanhorn 2 follows the adventures of a young Knight who sets out on a magical journey across the vast regions of Gaia to defend the lands and people of Arcadia from Warlock Mesmeroth’s Dark Army. Joined by Trin, the granddaughter of Arcadia’s leader Archimedes, and Gen, a mysterious robot wielding an old Samurai weapon, our young protagonist faces the impossible challenge of uniting the Owrus, Gillfolk, and men in order to defeat Mesmeroth’s formidable Dark Army. By controlling the characters with contextual commands, you must solve puzzles and fight in tactical battles to strike down your enemies in hack ‘n slash combat, traversing a Zelda-esque open-world landscape. The 20-hour action-filled RPG is currently available on Apple Arcade.
