Konami Digital Entertainment announced today that Ash II: Shadows has launched for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. For fans of the original Ash, you can expect to see many new characters, quests and a whole new story set in the grand world of Aghaus. Developer SRRN Games is looking to make a hit app for iOS platforms that can still ride the success of the award-winning original.
That’s not a bad thing at all, however, as the game sounds absolutely beautiful. As of now, the developers are only releasing the first chapter with each new episode set to be released weekly. Players can choose to buy either the Gold Edition, $4.99, which gives players all six chapters, or the Silver Edition, $2.99, that gets players the first two chapters. For those who want to play more, each chapter will be only $0.99 each.
Be sure to check out the original Ash, as it’s only $0.99 in the app store. Read on below to hear a statement from the company that reveals even more about Ash II: Shadows.
In Ash II: Shadows, the world of Aghaus is once again in peril, and the heroes of old must heed the call to embark on another dangerous adventure. Players join characters Nicholas and Damien as they pursue new quests, discover ancient mysteries, and find unexpected allies. With a brilliantly original tale and stunning HD hand-drawn graphics, Ash II: Shadows features heart pounding classic RPG gameplay with innovative touch-based controls.
