Although Epic Minds openly admit their love for The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap, they do put their own spin on the genre in Midora.
Playing as Snow, you will discover the ‘one thing’ that turns her into a heroine of destiny and will set out on quests that see you trek through 12 different dungeons in an open world. Playing as Snow you are able to control water, and you will soon learn to combine this ability with magic runes that will enable you to experiment and find new ways to defeat your enemies.
Hidden within the game’s many dungeons are other items that you can use to progress through the game. Such items include a boomerang-like Wind Fan and a Vine Whip – which can be used to help you traverse around levels. There are said to be over 200 different items available in Midora for you to use, some of which you will have to craft yourself and some of which can only be utilised at night. If you need to take a break from exploring dungeons, Midora has a variety of different mini-games such as fishing for you to while away the time.
Midora‘s required goal for funding is set at $60,000, with a PlayStation Vita and PS4 stretch goal set at $100,000. At the time of writing Midora is currently at $30,528 with 17 days to go.
Midora certainly does look nice and we here at The Vita Lounge will be keeping an eye on this Kickstarter game to see if it will reach its stretch goal. As always, as soon as we have more news, we will be sure to keep you posted!
For now though, here is a trailer for Midora;
