The original two games in the series were released in 2014 and 2016 respectively, and the second one saw positive reviews including a 7.0 from Nintendolife.
The Fairune games place you in a retro world vaguely reminiscent of the original Legend of Zelda and follows an unnamed heroine on various adventures across a large over world and underworld in the sequel as she solves puzzles to progress to her goals. According to the Nintendolife review, the second game alone will yield between 2.5-5 hours of gameplay.
