The Legend of Kusakari will be out on the 3DS eShop later this week. Take a look at some off-screen footage below.

In a recent interview with publisher Nnooo, The Legend of Kusakari developers Librage talked about their inspirations for the title, confirming that their game is indeed inspired by the Legend of Zelda series, and elaborated on their interaction with Nintendo and how they felt about such clear inspirations.

When asked about how the team was inspired to make the The Legend of Kusakari, Librage said:

The inspiration is the Legend of Zelda itself as you can see from the title logo and its game elements!

Furthermore, when asked about the kind of reaction Nintendo had to the clear inspirations the The Legend of Kusakari has to the The Legend of Zelda series, Librage said:

This is just our subjective impression, but they seem to be very favorable about this game. We visited Nintendo headquarters for a meeting and explained our project. They said this game was easy to understand because the title and content are consistent, and praised us.

We’ve included some information about The Legend of Kusakari after the break.

Today, Nnooo announced plans to localize The Legend of Kusakarai for western markets. Librage originally released the game in Japan last May.

For those who haven’t heard of The Legend of Kusakarai, here’s an overview:

You know what’s the worst thing ever? Fighting slimes and dragons knee deep in grass and weeds.

Well if Kusakari has anything to do with it it wont be that way for long. Get your scythe sharpened and jump in to this quirky Japanese adventure puzzle game. Slice through over 50 levels of grass filled action and help those heroes save the kingdom, in battle grounds fit to have a picnic on!

The Scythe:

Rush from blade to blade and then getting hacking! As you slice away at grass your Scythe will become sharper and start to level up. The higher the level the bigger are you can cut using your special ability. Watch out tho’ Kusakari gets pretty ill if he’s not cutting that grass so make sure you eat up those odd blue bits of grass for a health boost (I’m sure there is nothing odd about eating glowing blue grass right!?) then rush off to the next patch!

And the original Japanese trailer:

A western release date for The Legend of Kusakarai has not yet been confirmed.
