A Knight’s Quest is launching next week, Oct. 10 on PS4 and PC (exclusively on the Epic Game Store), and comes to Xbox One a day later, a new release date trailer from Curve Digital announced. A gameplay montage reveals a charming open-world and a heroic quest that’s more than a little reminiscent of Zelda.
The game certainly has a similar story premise, and the third-person action/adventure gameplay features the sort of puzzle-solving, light platforming, and combat you’d say was inspired by the iconic series.
In the publisher’s own words:
“Rusty is a kind-hearted, but clumsy adventurer who accidentally starts a chain of events which threaten to destroy his world. A Knight’s Quest invites you to play as Rusty in his quest – controlling the elements, dodging perilous traps, and battling challenging enemies through the fantastical open world of Regalia.”
A press release sent to Twinfinite breaks down the game’s key features:
- UNLOCK RUSTY’S POTENTIAL – Our hero begins his adventure with just a trusty sword and basic shield, but he’ll soon unlock ‘Spirit Powers’ – spectacular abilities which allow Rusty to, at the tap of a button, he can harness the powers of Fire, Ice and Time.
- EXPLORE REGALIA – Rusty’s adventure will take him to the desert town of Zameris, high over the ice-laden Peaky Peaks and into the Cursed Swamp, among many others. Encountering a colourful cast of characters along the way.
- ENEMIES ABOUND – From General Windpipe to The Watcher and many more besides, peril is never too far away.
- SHOW YOUR SKILL – Combat is fast and fluid, and platforming a dream, with Rusty’s repertoire of acrobatic moves effortless to pull off. Playing the hero has never felt so rewarding.

The game might be just what the doctor ordered after finishing The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening if you’re looking for something similar. But if you’re still determined to keep play, read our feature about things to do once you’ve completed it.
