Evoland – Interview with Sebastien Vidal, CEO of Shiro Games

Evoland takes the key gameplay components many of us grew up with and melds them together into a game that not only relives some of the best adventures of the late-eighties and nineties, but also is just pretty fun in its own right.

Since Dynasty Warriors 4, fans have often been a little hesitant with the positive numbered games, so it's nice to see Koei seem to be bucking that trend.
