Publisher Playtonic Friends and developer Castle Pixel have announced Blossom Tales II: The Minotaur Prince for the Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam. It will launch in 2022.
"Our team believes in games’ power to captivate by marrying fun gameplay with memorable storytelling," said Castle Pixel design lead Rob Maher. "The classic 2D games we grew on tested your skills from start to finish, and we’re also big fans of games that let you influence the story and world through choice. Blossom Tales II is our love letter to action RPGs of old but allows us to blend that satisfying challenge with delightful interactivity in a way that we love to play ourselves."
Playtonic Friends CEO Gavin Price added, "We’re all huge fans of the older Zelda titles, and when we first played the original Blossom Tales, we were blown away by the heart and character Castle Pixel brought to their game. When the opportunity arose to work with the team on expanding that experience and helping to bring The Minotaur Prince to life we had to jump at it."
