Mika Mobile is returning to the series that made it a star in the mobile games industry, as it announced yesterday that it has been developing Battleheart 2 for a few months now with the hopes of a 2017 release. The major change for this sequel, in addition to a new art style, is that it will support four-player co-op.
“The game supports up to four players, with each nominating one or more of their individual characters into a communal party. Want to group up with three pals and have a little mini-raid? That’s the idea,” Mika said.
There are plans to simultaneously launch the title on both Android and iOS, with cross-platform play enabled (a PC version is also being considered). Android gamers are still smarting over Mika abandoning the platform back in 2012 (citing difficult development and a low return on investment), only to return a couple of years later with Battleheart Legacy and updates to its older games.
