Given Zelda's stature in the pantheon of video games, it's to be expected that many other games will seek to emulate the look, feel and atmosphere of Nintendo's seminal series – and that certainly seems to be the case with the upcoming eShop game Legend of the Skyfish.

A collaboration between Ratalaika Games, Crescent Moon Games and Mgaia Studios, Legend of the Skyfish is described as "a beautiful level-based adventure puzzler" based around a "unique weapon" – a fishing rod.

The rod can be used both as a weapon and as a grappling hook, and can be upgraded as you battle your way through 45 "hand-crafted" levels, solving puzzles and defeating bosses as you go.

It all looks pretty jolly if you ask us, even if the Zelda references are a little on the nose. "Skyfish" sounds awfully close to "Windfish", and the fishing rod is, of course, an item in several Zelda adventures (although admittedly, it's being used quite creatively here).

Still, Legend of the Skyfish looks like it could be much more than a clone of Zelda. It launches on Switch on August 30th in both Europe and North America, and will cost 7.99€ / $7.99. Let us know if it takes your fancy by posting a comment below.
