We love a good Zelda-style adventure, so it’s easy to see why Ocean’s Heart caught our eye – the game’s visuals call to mind the likes of Link to the Past and Minish Cap, and the lead character has another connection with the series thanks to her clothing, which looks a lot like Link’s outfit in Breath of the Wild.
Currently confirmed for release on Steam, Ocean’s Heart is described as “an action RPG featuring detailed pixel art with a heavy focus on exploration” which takes place “in a lively world teeming with secrets and mysteries.” You assume the role of Tilia, who is determined to find her missing father.
While a Switch version hasn’t been confirmed as yet, the game did get a Switch age rating in Brazil recently, so it’s looking likely that you’ll be able to play this Zelda-style RPG on your Switch soon.
Here’s some PR:
