Blossom Tales II: The Minotaur Prince Scheduled for Launch in 2022

by Ian Matties

Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King, the critically acclaimed 2017 game from Castle Pixel has a sequel coming next year thanks to a new publishing partnership with Playtonic Friends titled Blossom Tales II: The Minotaur Prince. 

Following the success of Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King, their first game, Castle Pixel wanted to bring fans of 2D action-adventure games more of that gameplay they long for, along with a challenge that hit the right spot. All this while bringing back the “story within a story” that they used so magnificently as the story revolves around a grandfather telling a story to his grandchildren. I know that I, for one, am excited to see what comes in this latest adventure!

“Our team believes in games' power to captivate by marrying fun gameplay with memorable storytelling” commented Rob Maher, Design Lead at Castle Pixel “The classic 2D games we grew on tested your skills from start to finish, and we're also big fans of games that let you influence the story and world through choice. Blossom Tales 2 is our love letter to action RPGs of old but allows us to blend that satisfying challenge with delightful interactivity in a way that we love to play ourselves”

Gavin Price, CEO of Playtonic Friends, added “We’re all huge fans of the older Zelda titles and when we first played the original Blossom Tales, we were blown away by the heart and character Castle Pixel brought to their game. When the opportunity arose to work with the team on expanding that experience and helping to bring The Minotaur Prince to life we had to jump at it.”

Officially unveiled at the IndieLand and Charity Stream that streamed from September 24 – 26 over at, Blossom Tales II: The Minotaur Prince will be coming to Steam and Nintendo Switch in 2022.
