Action-Adventure Title ‘Baldo’ Seeks To Fill The ‘Zelda’ Shaped Hole In Our Lives

by Sage Ashford

Developer Naps Team has released a trailer of their upcoming cel-shaded action adventure title “Baldo”, courtesy of IGN. Not much information has been given about the game other than the trailer and a few screenshots, though they do seem to have an active Twitter account. The Baldo trailer gives us a glimpse at what this world looks like–a beautiful cel-shaded forest area (and the city connected to it), reminiscent of Level 5’s Ni no Kuni in art direction.

The lead character Baldo gets to explore both his hometown and a number of other environments including deserts, the forest outside his village, and many more.  At the same time, the gameplay shows him solving puzzles and battling everything from common rats to massive powered golems. Fortunately, along the way, he seems to make a number of allies.

For now, this trailer is all there is, but with E3 coming up soon it’s possible we might get another look at this during Microsoft or Nintendo’s conference. Baldo has no release date yet, but will be published on the PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
