See The Visual Improvements Coming To Wind Waker-Like Oceanhorn Next Month


The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker-like action adventure Oceanhorn for iOS will be getting new graphical optimizations in an update on December 11th.


The split image above shows how the game looks now on the right, while the screenshot on the left shows how it looks with the forthcoming visual improvements.


If you look at the wooden barrel and the fence in particular, you can see how the right angles have been smoothed out into curves. The leaves on the plants look more lively, as does the character’s face, too.


You can see another screenshot comparison above. In this one you can really notice the extra detail in the rock faces.


These improvements have been made specifically for the new improved screens of the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and iPad Air 2. With the update running, the game will have four times the original number of polygons, run at 60 frames per second, and have ambient occlusion, and other lighting effects.


If you haven’t already, you can purchase Oceanhorn for $8.99 on the App Store.
