Hunter's Legacy: Purrfect Edition fixes several of the issues the original game had by adding a much-needed minimap and making enemies more reactive to your attacks. However, the sound design on Ikki herself is still irksome and the game is a far cry from what it could be. I'd love to see what Lienzo does with Ikki in the future, but for now, Hunter's Legacy: Purrfect Edition is just OK.
Overall, Hinter's Legacy: Purrfect Edition is a fun metroidvania game to pass the time. The addition of the mini-map and some tweaks make it feel like a good addition to the Nintendo Switch catalogue. Hinter's Legacy: Purrfect Edition has issues, but still, it's something that could become an improved adventure if Lienzo's team keep expanding Ikki's world in a sequel.
Flaws in the combat really hold Hunter's Legacy back from being one of the better indie Metroidvania titles. It does feature solid platforming and an interesting world that make it worth picking up. If you like cats and can deal with some cheap deaths then this is definitely a game worth playing.
