In one of those lovely surprise drops, I was notified via Youtube that Nintendo uploaded a trailer for this cute game called Ikenfell. Gameplay consists of a modernised looking Game Boy red/blue top-down look during exploration, and a character level view during combat. Turn-based gameplay with the tactical element is the name of the game and it looks good! From the trailer, it seems handheld will be the way to play as it doesn’t have that pixel-perfect style.

Developed by Happy Ray Games, Ikenfell is available now for $17.99 / £17.99! Below is the eShop information:
