Found this little tidbit on the Touch Arcade forums regarding Zenonia 2 and a bit on VANQUISH: The Oath of Brothers from Gamevil.
Gamevil, the developers of Zenonia and Baseball Superstars 2010, have revealed some new information for Zenonia 2: The Lost Memories, and has also released a new trailer for their upcoming artistic action RPG Vanquish: The Oath of Brothers.
The original Zenonia, launched in May of this year, was quite a hit among iPhone and iPod touch gamers because it brought a “real” RPG experience to the platform. Now the developers intend to expand on that experience in Zenonia 2: The Lost Memories.
The game will feature four distinct characters to choose from, a Paladin, Shooter, Magician, and Warrior, instead of the single character you were stuck with in the original. The Magician and Warrior classes will be capable of attacking from a distance thanks to their range skills. Zenonia 2 will also feature three levels of difficulty, which should help the game appeal to newcomers and veterans. Playing on the Hard and Hellish difficulties will allow you to obtain unique loot and access a hidden boss stage. The game will also be receiving new terrain effects, such as water, snow, and ice, that will add a slight twist to the gameplay.
Speaking of twists, Zenonia 2 will sport asynchronous online multiplayer, which means you will be able to download and compete against your friends’ character. Gamevil has’t exactly explained how this system is going to work, so you will just have to wait until Zenonia 2’s release in March to find out.
Little is known about Vanquish: The Oath of Brothers at this point, except that it will be an “artistic action RPG” and that it will be hitting the App Store in late February. But how can’t you get excited for another action RPG from the creators of Zenonia?
Not too much about VANQUISH, but asynchronous online multiplayer has interested and perplexed me. More as Gamevil releases more info!
