Former Legend of Zelda director Kentaro Tominaga is working on an open-world dress-up RPG called Infinity Nikki.
As reported by KotakuTominaga leads the game at developer PaperGames, after working as a designer on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and director of the expansion pass.
Infinity Nikki features almost Disney elements, mixing anime aesthetics with a core gameplay loop exploring a colorful open world full of puzzles and platforming.
The protagonist, Nikki, can change outfits to perform different abilities and tasks. As the reveal trailer (above) shows, this includes fishing, cooking, catching bugs, and more.
“Join Momo and Nikki on a new adventure collecting different clothes, solving puzzles and uncovering secret areas of the world,” the announcement post reads. “Dress up for the occasion and equip different outfits to access abilities like fishing, catching bugs, and floating.”
The Nikki franchise launched Nikki UP2U: A Dressing Story on mobile as a much simpler 2D dress-up game, and has since expanded to three more titles, all on mobile. However, this changes with Infinity Nikki. This has been confirmed on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC as well as Android and iOS devices. No release date or window has been shared so far.
