Action RPG Blossom Tales Coming Soon to XBLIG
As a fan of Xbox Indie role-playing games, I’m quite excited about the upcoming RPG Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King from XNA studio 2 Headed Games.
This XBLIG title is an action RPG in the vein of the first Zelda release that sports old-school graphics that transport gamers back to those golden days of gaming. The adventure is your classic Hero’s Journey where our chosen valiant warrior must defy evils and danger to save the world and become the champion of a fantasy land.
Check below for an official synopsis straight from the developers:
The peaceful Kingdom of Blossom has fallen into chaos! Its sworn protectors, the Knights of the Rose, have mysteriously vanished one-by-one. Now the kind and just King Orchid has been cursed into a deep sleep by the High Wizard Crocus and his evil wizard magic! It’s up to one little Knight to defeat Crocus and his Dark Wizard Brothers.
Your quest will take you on a perilous journey through the villages and wildlands of Blossom, where you will battle through a series of five dungeons, collect long-lost artifacts, unlock new spells, and discover new abilities. Choose your path wisely- your sword and your courage determine the fate of Blossom.
No release date has been set for Blossom Tales, and it’s expected to be somewhere in the 80-240 MSP ($1-3) price range.
