Squids Odyssey | oprainfall

France-based studio The Game Bakers is teaming up with developer Assoria to bring their Squids franchise to Nintendo consoles.  Squids Odyssey is advertised as a tactical RPG, where players can build a team of squid heroes to brave treacherous landscapes and engage in turn-based battle against foes. This is the third Squids title, and the first to not be a mobile-only game.

Emeric Thoa, The Game Bakers’ creative director, addressed how the company added a bit of a Nintendo-style flair to this title in an official press release:

“We originally conceived SQUIDS with classic Nintendo games in mind. It’s an RPG with a colorful world, a fun story, and simple controls, but lots of gameplay depth like in the Zelda games. We’re thrilled that Nintendo has supported our dream of bringing our Squids to their hardware and can’t wait for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS players to dive in with these brave heroes.”

With more than 90 levels, 15 squid party members to choose from (belonging to four unique classes: Scout, Shooter, Destroyer, and Healer), more than 65 stat-boosting helmets and 15 hours of gameplay, this cute romp in an underwater world looks like it will be a substantial addition to the eShop. Squids Odyssey will be released sometime this spring, so keep an eye out.
