Striker Arena, the action/sports game developed by Japanese team Wizcorp, is now available for purchase on the App Store.
The game was originally meant to be released as a free to play title with microtransactions. However the team revealed last week that their game would be released as a premium title, as they felt the gameplay experience of their title wouldn’t work with a free to play model.
Striker Arena has been originally revealed during Summer 2014, with a Kickstarter campaign launched later in September. The game is a unique take on soccer games, including features taken from several different games like Mario Strikes and the Inazuma Eleven games to create a really interesting mix between real time and turn based action. The game’s premise and atmosphere are also rather unique, with two different tribes, Vikings or Gladiators, settling their own differences in a brutal soccer match where everything is permitted.
Striker Arena is now available for purchase on the App Store for $2.99 for both iPhone and iPad. The game is definitely one of the more unique titles now available on the App Store so make sure to check it out if you’re looking for something unusual to play on the go.
