A pleasant surprise.
06.16.16 - 1:22 AM

Today, Nintendo surprised everybody by announcing a brand-new intellectual property being developed for the 3DS by Grezzo, the company previously responsible for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and Majora's Mask 3D. The game is due out in 2017, and is directed by Koichi Ishii, who previously worked on several titles in Square Enix's Mana series. The result looks like a combination of Zelda, Animal Crossing, and Legend of Mana, which is quite promising. Check out the announcement trailer and presentation video below.

From the team behind The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D comes a daring new adventure that expands on everything RPG fans love about the genre. As a chosen Seedling, your mission is to build a prosperous oasis by working with your partner, Isuna. Meet and ally with members of other tribes to complete your mission, while battling against the Chaos threatening peace in the desert. Battle enemies in real-time combat as you switch between three party members and explore a savage desert. Forage for materials in caves and puzzle-filled dungeons to earn dewadems, which are used to grow new shops and even grow gear!
