It’s not hard to draw comparisons between Oceanhorn and a certain iconic Nintendo Franchise. So it’s only fitting that the game eventually made it’s way to Nintendo’s newest platform, the Switch. Looking at screenshots, it’s easy to see that the developers were inspired by Nintendo’s tunic wearing hero. The similarities are undeniable; the hero’s appearance, the game’s narrative, and overall design choices scream The Legend of Zelda. I’m not saying that’s at all a bad thing though as Oceanhorn takes the formula and gives it their own touch. Whether it’s any fun is a whole other issue.
