Zelda tribute 'Oceanhorn' coming to consoles

The Zelda-inspired iOS adventure gets a current console release.

After a positive reception on iOS as a 'mobile Zelda' game in late 2013, and a later release on Steam in 2015, indie developer FDG announced at Gamescom 2016 that the game will be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 7th.

The game has been both hailed and criticized for it's heavy influence from the Zelda franchise, most notably in the Wind Waker-esque visuals. Regardless, it has received overall positive reviews in the past, and was also praised for exploring and bringing an uncommon genre to mobile games. Additionally, the team was gifted with the talents of Nobuo Uematsu and Kenji Ito to compose the game's soundtrack, resulting in all-around solid experience.

On the off chance your interest is piqued and September 7th seems too far away, the game is already available on Steam and the App Store for those respective platforms.
