After its initial “Summer 2020” release window was delayed, the strikingly gorgeous adventure platformer Blue Fire is now available on Nintendo Switch, with an exciting new trailer to boot.

Zelda fans in particular may be interested, as there appears to be lots of temples to explore, gigantic monsters to fight, quests to pursue, and collectibles to find. Speaking of Zelda, the black substance seen in the trailer really reminds me of Breath of the Wild’s Calamity, and that blue getup seen at the 0:54 mark looks awfully familiar — this could be a hint that players can expect some references and easter eggs!

 

 

Of course, inspirations aside, the game certainly appears to have an identity of its own. There’s a heavy focus on platforming and parkour-style movement, and the combat looks incredibly slick and fast.

Blue Fire is now available on the Nintendo Switch eShop.

A lifelong Nintendo fan and a longtime editor at Zelda Universe, Reece will forever be grateful that he somehow dodged the Naughty List of Christmas 1998, when Santa delivered the life-changing gift of a Nintendo 64 with Super Mario 64, Banjo-Kazooie, and Mario Kart 64. When he's not playing games, Reece is usually reading Punisher comics, delving helplessly into the weirdest depths of anime and manga, or spending time with his cocker spaniel Gracie -- the goodest girl ever!
