Remember when we recently reported on the fact that the Game Boy was getting a brand-new RPG title in 2020? Well, if that brought a smile to your face, then you’re going to be very pleased to hear that the plucky little console (and its more powerful sibling, the Game Boy Color) is getting another new release very soon.
Team Coria is working on a 2D-sidescrolling adventure by the name of Coria and the Sunken City, a title inspired by the likes of Wonder Boy in Monster World and Ys. In this adventure, heroine Coria “explores the caves, forests and mountains of the mysterious Agoe Island, uncovering an ancient mystery sleeping beneath the waves of the sea.”
The team has released a lovely-looking cinematic trailer – which you can watch at the top of this page – as well as a playable demo that you can experience on original hardware (using a flash cart) or in your web browser. The objective is to release the final game digitally and on a physical cartridge.
Here’s some PR:
Follow young adventurer Coria on her travels across the mysterios island of Agoe! Find new skills and weapons to help you on your way, overcome obstacles, beat ferocious enemies and bosses and uncover an ancient secret!
+ Explore a vast open island world
+ Meet friendly islanders who help you on your quest
