Ever Oasis is almost here, and it looks like loads of fun. Grezzo, the development studio behind The Legend of Zelda 3DS port and The Legend of Legacy, is helming this project and it brought along Secret of Mana creator Koichi Ishii along for the ride.
The game certainly has a feel to it that is reminiscent of Secret of Mana with its action-oriented combat system, its dominant theme of nature, and its whimsical fantasy setting. Players take control of a Seedling who must defend his oasis from the ever encroaching desert and its hordes of monsters.
Nintendo’s latest trailer shows off the world you’ll inhabit and how your Seedling will interact with its many colorful inhabitants and elements.
I’m always down for a good Nintendo 3DS JRPG
The Nintendo 3DS is one of the best consoles on the market for the JRPG genre, and Ever Oasis is just another fun chapter in its long history of adhering to the genre’s audience. With support for the console coming to a close, I’ll be sure to drag this one out as long as possible.
Ever Oasis launches for the Nintendo 3DS on June 23.
