The spiritual sequel to a game in the Zelda saga has just been unveiled and there is reason to be really destabilized by this totally unexpected announcement.
Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is the latest installment in Nintendo’s cult saga. Following Breath of the Wild had a lot of pressure on his shoulders as his eldest had marked the players and even more widely the history of video games. TOTK has risen to the challenge of living up to public expectations and its absolutely crazy sales are a testament to its success. And if Zelda is now an ultra lucrative license, it has not yet given birth to exceptional games, far from it…
The spiritual sequel to a Zelda game is coming, but…
Does the CD-i mean anything to you? We understand. The console developed by Philipps, released in 1991 in the United States, was a real commercial failure, despite its on-board multimedia player. The console still hosted three games Zelda…considered the worst in the history of the series. Link: The Faces of Evil, Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon And Zelda’s Adventure all three have been slammed for their abysmal gameplay, with the last one receiving the harshest criticism for its utterly laughable live-action cutscenes. Well despite that, the trilogy is going to have a spiritual sequel! But it will not come from Nintendo. The publisher Limited Run Games has just announced the release ofArzette: The Jewel of Faramore for this year.
As the company specifies, it is neither more nor less than a spiritual sequel to the latest episode, Zelda’s Adventure. The game is developed by Seedy Eye Software, studio behind which hides the developer named Seth Fulkerson alias Dopply. Arzette is his very first game, but he has already distinguished himself with a project made on GameMaker in the past. After this announcement accompanied by a first trailer, the creator promises to give more information on Arzette: The Jewel of Faramore in the coming weeks on the account Twitter title official.
The artist of the CD-i trilogy on the spot
The first trailer of the adventure game therefore takes up the aesthetics of the games from which it is inspired, which gives a somewhat confusing, but particularly marked rendering. This should have its small effect on the most nostalgic. In any case, we understand that this particularly surprising epic is faithful to the trilogy Zelda of the time on the graphic level since Rob Dunlavey, the artist who worked on Link: The Faces of Evil And Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon contributed to this rather crazy project.
During the adventure, players will control Arzette, who will have to eliminate a certain Daimur, the king who reigns terror over the Kingdom of Faramore. The good news is that all gamers will be able to enjoy it given that the adventure game is due to release on PlayStation, Xbox Nintendo Switch, and PC. In addition to The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdomhere is another title to put under the tooth for the fans, even if obviously, it is about a project of a scale much less than TOTK.
