Blossom Tales 2: The Minotaur Prince features tributes to old and new Legend Of Zelda games, including a nod to the infamous Kaepora Gaebora.
Independent publisher Playtonic Friends (Yooka-Laylee, Lil gator) and developer Castle Pixel (Rex rocket) just announced Blossom Tales 2: The Minotaur Prince, a pixelated 2D return to the classic The Legend of Zelda games that also contain some clever nods to the more modern 3D adventures of the series. It’s also a sequel to the 2017 indie dungeon crawler Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King for Steam and Nintendo Switch, which has been praised by fans of old school games for capturing the whimsical feel of titles like Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The Past in a modern experience.
As was the case in The sleeping king, Blossom Tales 2: The Minotaur Prince will put players on an epic journey through a magical realm in old-school top-to-bottom style The Legend of Zelda titles, solve puzzles and fight a variety of dangerous enemies. Which sets The minotaur prince aside from branching paths that can shape the player experience, including the ability to choose which boss they can fight against at the end of a certain dungeon. Interested players got their first glimpse Blossom Tales 2: The Minotaur Prince at yesterday’s IndieLand 2021 livestream, which works to raise money for dementia research in addition to providing independent publishers and developers with a platform to show off their latest projects.
Shortly after this screening, Playtonic Friends released a trailer for Blossom Tales 2: The Minotaur Prince on its official YouTube channel, as well as a press release outlining Castle Pixel’s goal of mixing the classic RPG gameplay the developers grew up on with the more contemporary gameplay and title story choices. In the brief Blossom Tales 2: The Minotaur Prince trailer, an old man tells a story to his grandchildren by a campfire. This story sees the player character roaming various environments, battling monsters, and asking for help from several colorful NPCs – one of which is a talking owl who looks more than a hovering like Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of TimeIt’s Kaepora Gaebora.
Hardcore Zelda Kaepora Gaebora will be remembered by fans as a supposedly helpful guide who provided Link with gameplay advice throughout the 1998s Ocarina of time. Unfortunately, this often involved stopping the player dead in their tracks to deliver endless lectures and subconscious facts like “press start to pause the game”, and players found themselves mashing the A button to ignore it altogether. his speeches. Her squeaky theme song didn’t do much to make her like it either. Zelda fans, who to date are debating who was most annoying in the otherwise well-known Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time: Kaepora Gaebora or the equally irritating fairy Navi.
Hope the owl players meet in Blossom Tales 2: The Minotaur Prince isn’t as headache as Kaepora Gaebora, as Castle Pixel’s latest 2D dungeon crawler looks like a promising and colorful tribute to the top-down The Legend of Zelda titles of yesteryear. Players looking for this classic style of play will have the chance to dive into Blossom Tales 2: The Minotaur Prince when it launches on Steam and Nintendo Switch next year.
