It’s Official: ‘Oceanhorn’ Launching this Week for $8.99

Ok, let’s keep this short and sweet as we’ve covered Oceanhorn extensively in the past already. But after all the teasing publisher FDG Entertainment had been doing surrounding the release date of this highly-anticipated action RPG, I figured some of you out there would like to know that they’ve officially nailed down the release date of Oceanhorn as November 14th. That’s this Thursday, but as savvy iOS gamers already know, that means it will actually start making its way across international App Stores early Wednesday morning before arriving in the US App Store at around 11pm EST tomorrow night.

Also worth noting is that the price for Oceanhorn will be $8.99. This is for what has been pegged as a 10+ hour experience, and as previously stated there will be no form of in-app purchases whatsoever. For all those people who are salty towards the free-to-play trends and beg for a “pay once for a full game" experience, now is the time to put your money where your mouth is. If something as attractive as Oceanhorn can’t do well at a sub-ten dollar price point, well, let’s just say we’ve got a lot more virtual coins and timers in our gaming futures.

Of course, that all depends on if Oceanhorn is actually a good game and all, but so far it appears that it will be more than up to expectations. It’s just a short wait now, so in the meantime be sure to see what’s going on in Oceanhorn’s forum thread.
