Crunchyroll announces action-adventure "Hime's Quest" for the Game Boy Color
Well...of course I'll need both carts
Anime streaming service Crunchyroll has announced Hime’s Quest, an 8-bit action adventure game for both the Game Boy Color and PC. Even better, the Game Boy Color version will be getting a physical release via Limited Run Games, and pre-orders are open right now! The PC version will be “free-to-play and download on supported browsers” sometime in December 2022.
There are two different versions of Hime’s Quest to grab, with Crunchyroll selling an orange cart and Limited Run Games offering a teal one. Both are priced at $45 and include the following:
- Physical Copy of Hime’s Quest for Gameboy Color
- Hime’s Quest Folded Poster
