Blossom Tales Has a Springtime Date With Steam

Castle Pixel’s charming ode to The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past has received an official launch date, publisher FDG Entertainment announcing that Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King will bloom on Steam right in time for the beginning of the spring season, on March 28th.

Starring a Knight of the Rose named Lily, Blossom Tales is an action-adventure game cut from the cloth of the classic top-down Zelda games of yore. Players can expect 15 hours of dungeon crawling, challenging boss battles, and tricky puzzle solving across a sprawling open world that needs rescuing from the depths of eternal darkness.

Watch the new trailer. Put the game on your Steam wishlist. Weep wistfully in anticipation while you wait just a few more weeks to play the game. I know it’ll be difficult, but you’ll make it.
