Just over a month to go before 3DS owners can call the desert home in Ever Oasis. To get everyone caught up, Nintendo has released a teaser site for the game giving the basics and a few screenshots. We have the full fact sheet below as well as a few of the more stand-out screenshots:

Explore a perilous desert and defend its last oasis

The desert’s last safe haven is a lone oasis you call home. So draw a line in the sand and fight to protect it! As you explore the desert and solve puzzling dungeons, you’ll gather resources to build up your oasis with the water spirit Esna. Allies will join your cause, so equip them with weapons, and use their skills to slay towering bosses.

The Ever Oasis™ game is a new action-adventure RPG grown from the ground up by Koichi Ishii, creator of the Mana series and producer at GREZZO, the studio that rebuilt multiple Legend of Zelda™ games for the Nintendo 3DS™ family of systems. Their team has crafted puzzles and traps too perilous for one hero to solve. So recruit a party of allies and level up their stats to learn new battle skills. Then return to your oasis and restore it: choose which shops to build, stock their inventories, collect a share of the profits, and keep villagers happy by fulfilling requests. Before long your oasis will blossom into a beacon of hope for all walks of life in the desert. Don’t let them down.

Features

  • Defend the last standing oasis and help it flourish with the water spirit Esna.
  • Explore a perilous desert, deep caves, and puzzling dungeons.
  • Grow your oasis by completing quests, recruiting allies, and building shops.
  • Switch between party members with distinct fighting styles in real-time battles.
  • Allies have innate skills and battle skills, which level up as your oasis grows, along with stats.

Chances are a full fledged site will pop up within the month, so keep checking back. Ever Oasis will launch in Europe and North America on June 23rd, and Japan on July 13th.
