The game will launch later this month, Oct. 28 for $29.99, with pre-orders offering a 10% discount set to go live on Oct. 21.
Heikki Repo, creative director of Cornfox & Brothers said in a statement today:
“We are extremely excited to be at the finish line of this important milestone for Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm. Nintendo Switch is such an ideal platform for this type of game, providing smooth controls and an overall enjoyable experience that feels natural. We can’t wait for everyone to try it out for themselves!”
For those not up to speed, Knights of the Lost Realm is an acclaimed sequel to Monster of the Uncharted Seas, the Zelda-like that earned similar praise back in 2013. Likes its predecessor, the game first launched last year as a mobile iOS exclusive.
This time around, players can look forward to a grander, more ambitious sequel in which they’ll embark on an epic adventure through a gorgeous open-world. You can check out footage of the game running on Nintendo Switch below.
