Has Anyone seen or heard of this game?

It's called    (Metamode. Japan-only.)

It looks and plays alot like a Zelda game.
However it is part 'Gatcha collecting' i heard.

Making it somewhat pok'emon like.

Well, a game released 21 years ago isn't really a "new" game.

That stretched aspect ratio in the video is painful to watch for more than a minute though! :P
Can't really comment on the robotic sounding commentary voice.

The level of detail is off the charts! I'd imagine you have a good chance at attracting attention to a game like this around here.

It's hard to grasp this is actually a GBC game. Looks amazing! Kinda bumped nobody translated this one yet. But I guess it might not be that long before someone picks it up, now it's getting some more exposure!  :)

Considering Link's Awakening is pretty much tied with Ocarina of Time for my favorite Zelda game, and as a devout lover of the GBC library aesthetics and feel, this looks like a gold nugget to me. Never heard of it before, never even seen it mentioned, but I really hope that somebody with the skills and talent to translate it sees this and decides to pick it up. I'd *love* to play this someday in the not too distant future.

I'm expecting someone to point out that the game is ridiculously easy, or impossibly hard, or has terrible controls, or otherwise has some terrible flaw that is not evident from the screenshots.

I mean... you ever played the original Final Fantasy Adventure/Adventures of Mana? That shit was *brutal* and janky as hell. Gameboy/Gameboy Color games were pretty much a 50/50 chance of being close to gaming perfection or an adventure in dying over and over and over and not even realizing what killed you because you were just suddenly instantly dead. If it looks pretty and it's something English speakers have never had access to before, I say bring it on, whichever it may happen to be. From what I've seen it looks pretty damn solid, and that's all I need to enjoy.

Eh, it was fine, especially considering when it was released. I might say that if it didn't have Square, Mana, or Final Fantasy attached to it, probably no one would think of it much today, though some of the music is undeniably catchy.

It's not impossible that the full depth of the GBC library has gone unplumbed after twenty years, but there could be some good reason it hasn't gotten more attention before now.
