This week marks the debut of fairly just a few massive title releases, together with Metro Exodus, Leap Power, and Far Cry New Daybreak. However I’d like to show everybody’s consideration to a potential sleeper hit for the week: The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince. Ignore the NIS nametag on it for a minute and go along with me right here.
It doesn’t have a giant franchise title or characteristic fashionable characters from different media, but it surely seems to have coronary heart. It additionally seems to be fairly cute. It’s bought a fairy tale-like setting, with a wolf that may sing and a actually blind prince. When the prince stumbles upon the wolf singing, he’s mesmerized by the gorgeous voice, whereas the wolf is none too happy. She assaults him, leaving him blind. It seems he has an asshole for a father, as he throws his son in jail on account of his harm. Now the wolf feels unhealthy and needs to assist him regain his sight.
To take action, she trades her stunning singing voice for the flexibility to show right into a princess at whim. This manner, she will be able to lead the blind prince to a witch for therapeutic with out letting him know who she is.
In her princess type, she will be able to lead him and provides him orders to traverse by means of the forest. In sure conditions, the princess can flip into the wolf, which can be obligatory for fixing puzzles and defending the prince from hurt. The participant must stability between these varied types to get the prince to the witch safely.
All the things about this sport sounds tremendous cute and tremendous charming. It additionally has a slight ICO vibe to it, relating to main the blind prince by means of the forest. Hopefully, he’ll be simpler to handle than the princess from ICO.
The storybook qualities solely additional lend to its attraction. Because it is sort of a storybook, the story needs to be as charming because it appears to be, though I’ve a sneaking suspicion that will probably be unhappy. Most fairy tales are unhappy. If you happen to don’t imagine me, simply go learn the unique variations of a number of Disney fairy tales. The Little Mermaid is an actual deal with.
If you happen to don’t have your hard-earned cash set on the opposite massive names listed above, possibly contemplate giving this little ditty a shot.
