I picked up the latest issue of the truly excellent NGamer magazine this week to find it sporting a lovely Little King’s Story cover. It’s a great piece of original art featuring the King himself and has been augmented with a subtle spot gloss treatment that adds some nice little stars you can only see in the right light. It really is a great cover… But it’s what’s inside the mag that counts.
Within you’ll find a four page review of the game, awarding it 92% and calling it the “first essential game of 2009”. Turn to the back of the mag and you’ll also find a two page interview with Marvelous CEO Yasuhiro Wada about all things LKS.
It’s great to see a mainstream mag like NGamer get behind something as niche as Little King and I look forward to seeing if the rest of the specialist press agrees with them.
Little King’s Story is out April 24th in Europe/Australia and June 23rd in the States. Not long to wait now!
