A lot of ambitious games have been released on iOS and Android, offering experiences that are, quite often, almost on par with PC and console games, but very few managed to be as successful as Oceanhorn.
The game was heavily inspired by The Legend of Zelda series, maybe a little too much, but this didn’t prevent the game from becoming extremely popular among mobile gamers. Its sequel, Oceanhorn 2 Knights of the Lost Realm, has been in development for quite some time, and its features are getting expanded constantly.
In the latest developer’s blog, it’s been confirmed that Oceanhorn 2 Knights of the Lost Realm will feature locations from the original game.
This is a very welcome addition, as Oceanhorn 2 offers a different perspective which is more akin to that of 3D Zelda games, as opposed to the top-down view offered by the original game. Thanks to this, we should expect these locations to be more detailed than ever.
Oceanhorn 2 Knights of the Lost Realm will feature a setting that’s markedly different from the one seen in the original. The Legend of Zelda inspiration, however, is as evident as ever, and this is not a bad thing at all, since Nintendo doesn’t seem interested in bringing an entry in its popular series on mobile devices.
Oceanhorn 2 is also among the first games that have been confirmed for the Apple Arcade service. A regular release has not been confirmed so far, so it seems like players will have to subscribe to the service if they want to play the game on release day.
Oceanhorn 2 Knights of the Lost Realm launches on iOS on a yet to be confirmed release date.
