Currently Playing: The Legend of Kusakari

Happy Thursday!

Remember a while ago I mentioned a game called The Legend of Kusakari? I believe that was over a year ago.

Well, after beating Miitopia I was in the mood to spend what little I had left on my Nintendo eShop gift card. This game was $4.99 and decided… why not?

The Legend of Kusakari is an unofficial spin-off of The Legend of Zelda. It came out in August 2016 for the Nintendo 3DS published by Nnooo and developed by Librage.

People make jokes about Link having his sword in the Zelda games and how he just cuts grass all the time to find rupees and such. The Legend of Kusakari is about a “gardener,” so to speak. While the heroes defeat the monsters in the world, it’s your job to make sure they do it on a fresh lawn so they don’t get tangled up in the long grass.

That’s it. You cut the grass trying to avoid enemies (and the heroes that are fighting them).

Each level is timed though so you have to maneuver your way around the level to cut every single piece of grass before time runs out. You also have health, so if you bump into an enemy… just be careful not to die.

I wasn’t sure about this game when I first heard about it, but it’s actually not bad. I’m enjoying it and I’m curious to see what happens at the end.

First Thoughts: The Legend of Kusakari

Rachel Mii Double JumpThe other day I was scrolling through my Reader on WordPress and My Nintendo News popped up with something interesting that caught my eye.

There’s a new game being released for the 3DS that’s inspired by The Legend of Zelda. Great! …Right?

First Thoughts The Legend of Kusakari Double Jump

I’m going to assume most of you have played The Legend of Zelda before, or at least know the basic gist of it.

The Legend of Kusakari, aside from the title and logo, is “similar” to Zelda.

The premise of the game is that not all heroes are warriors. You play as Kusakari who is a grass cutter. His job is to keep the fields clear and grass-free so the warriors around him can fight off the evil and monsters lurking about.

As far as I can tell, that’s about it.

It seems more like a puzzle game. I don’t know if you’re timed to cut all the grass or what, but from the trailer, I noticed there were darker patches of grass that took two swings to cut instead of just one. Difficult, yes?

The game will be $4.99, which is surprising to me. I don’t know if this is just a trial run or what. Usually, the games are at least $30. The game is developed by Nnooo, a company I personally have never heard of. So I don’t know if that has anything to do with it.

I was excited for the game when I saw it was inspired by Zelda, but once I watched the trailer I was turned off. People in the comments said it’s a “clone” of Zelda, but it is far from. Aside from cutting the grass, the logo, and the title, that’s it. Oh, the music is similar, but I find it to be ear-piercing. Sorry for the bluntness, but if they chose different instruments, I think the music would have been different and therefore better.

Because it is only five dollars, I may give it a shot just because I’m curious. But I won’t be downloading it right when it comes out.
