With Hyrule Warriors around the corner, I was surprised at the lack of experience of most of you with Koei’s flagship franchise. Well… given the relative limited mainstream success and critical acclaim and sheer number of sequels made despite this absence of popularity, it might be closer to the company’s paddleboat ( or pédalo if you will). In fact, the more I thought about it, the more I realized this series really embodies the spirit of a paddleboat. Navigating at a slow pace, unable to move faster no matter how fast you pedal/press “x.” Everywhere you look water/soldiers, barely hindering your progress. You can go co-op to have at least someone to talk to while you’re grinding away. Most of the paddleboats/characters you see do look kind of good in their goofy way, but I’m always surprised they’re viable choices to sail on a lake / fight on a battlefield. You see my point.
