More On: Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas

The journey of Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas began way back on November 14th, 2013, when it released on iOS. Since then, developer Cornfox & Bros. has added a swell of free content, such as a new island, a new storyline to play, and a fishing minigame. Oceanhorn has since been released on PC, Mac, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Android, Vita - and now, Nintendo Switch.

In Oceanhorn, you play as a boy in search of his father who has vanished on a quest to vanquish the Oceanhorn - a dreaded beast of the sea. At first glance, it's no secret that Oceanhorn was bred with the same DNA that constructed classic Zelda entries, as well as borrowing from the colorful and cartoonish art style found in The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. With that in mind, don't be surprised when you find cash-money after slashing at a bush.

To help tie this journey together, Nobuo Uematsu and Kenji Ito have contributed to Oceanhorn's score. With songs by composers who are known for the music of legendary RPGs such as Final Fantasy; prepare to be delighted by this game's soundtrack.

Oceanhorn is a love letter to The Legend of Zelda that contains a dash of Final Fantasy's classic charm. If you're looking for a familiar adventure on land and sea, add Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas to your Nintendo Switch library today!
