The first Zenonia was all about saving the kingdom using one character named Regret, and he eventually sealed up a demon towards the end of the game. But years went by, and the seals were starting to wear off. Four people are then selected to find the gems that will ultimately strengthen them and the seals, and the story doesn’t sound too far away from the early Final Fantasies and Vay.
It was maybe one year ago that Zenonia was released, one of the most hyped up RPGs to ever enter the fray. Of course, back then was the time when RPGs were nearly non-existent in the early stages of the App Store, and people were bloodthirsty for a solid-looking game. Of course, the people over at Gamevil were smart enough to see this need and fill it, executing and bringing one of the best RPGs at the time.
Since then, the others have caught up, including amazing RPGs such as Dungeon Hunter, Ravensword, and Chronicles of Inotia 2. Zenonia 2 now enters a market of fierce competition, a factor that wasn’t there before. It also enters the market with the same visuals, and seemingly the same group of baddies to hack n’ slash against.
Some notable features included in this launch are millions of combinations in terms of weaponry and armor. The armor you wear will show up on the screen and change your appearance, something that I don’t believe was implemented into the first Zenonia. Along with that, there is an asynchronous online multiplayer, PvP arena mode in which you fight against other registered users, showing off your skills and powers.
All in all, it’s a step up from the first Zenonia, although I’m not sure how it will fare against other KRPGs such as Inotia: A Wanderer of Luone. We’ll have a full review up soon, but for now, check out the trailer and screenshots. The price is $4.99.
