Anime streaming service Crunchyroll announced a new media merchandise that’s not about anime but a video game. Crunchyroll game, Hime’s Quest announced to release for the Game Boy Color and web browsers. The game will utilize the square, 4:3 size screen with the 8-bit charm. Based on the short amount of gameplay in the trailer (below) and screenshots, it closely resembles The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening but how well it play?
