Oceanhorn Launches for Nintendo Switch on June 22nd
Set sail with Oceanhorn on the Nintendo Switch on June 22nd.
Back in January, publisher FDG Entertainment announced that its Zelda-esq action-adventure game, Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas, was coming to Nintendo Switch sometime later in 2017.
Then in April, the publisher showcased the game running on Nintendo’s new piece of hardware for the first time. At the time, FDG confirmed the game would run at 60fps in both Handheld and Docked mode, with the latter’s resolution coming in at 1080p, and the aforementioned coming in at 720p. Further, it was pointed out that like the PS4 and Xbox One build of the game, the Switch was based on the remastered PC version.
All of that being said, today it was revealed the game will be making its way to the Switch on June 22nd, and notably will support the Pro Controller.
For those that don’t know: Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas from developer Cornfox & Bros. — which if often praised or criticized for its clear mimic of the Zelda franchise — is a game where you explore the islands of Uncharted Seas, a world apparently full of danger, puzzles, and secrets. You will fight monsters, learn magic, and discover ancient treasures along way that will help you on your quest.
The following, brief story pitch/premise is provided:
You wake up and find a letter from your father. He is gone… The only lead is his old notebook and a mysterious necklace. What happened?
Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Sea notably boats over 15 hours of gameplay and an original soundtrack from Nobuo Uematsu and Kenji Ito.
A price-point for the Switch version hasn’t been divulged, but the game costs $14.99 USD on other platforms so expect a price within this ballpark. Below, you can check out the new trailer which accompanied today’s announcement:
