When I had the pleasure of checking out Castle Pixel’s Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King at PAX South, the developer wasn’t quite ready to commit to a release date. That has changed. Publisher FDG Entertainment has announced today that title will be hitting Steam March 28.
One has to credit their timing. With Breath of the Wild launching in a couple of days, players will be able to get their fill of Nintendo’s adventure before enjoying a fresh take on the classic gameplay that informed the series and rediscovering the mechanics that made it so enduring. That is a long, hot air filled way of saying that Blossom Tales is like A Link to the Past. In a major way. This isn’t a bad thing, as the original was perfect and it will be nice to experience that style again in a whole new adventure. Check out the trailer below to see what I mean.
