Last December Frontier Developments released their critically acclaimed WiiWare title LostWinds [$3.99] to the App Store. Despite the source material being of an incredibly high quality, we had some difficulties with the controls in our review, something that was thankfully rectified via an update about a month later.

Now it looks as if the sequel, 2009’s LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias, will be making the jump from WiiWare to the iOS App Store as well. The game will have some graphical enhancements over its WiiWare counterpart, some of which are on display in this short teaser released by Frontier.

No word yet on when LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias is scheduled to hit, but we’ll be keeping an eye out for any new information. Also, in case you were unaware, the original LostWinds has recently received partial Retina Display support for the new iPad, and after the previous big control update is an easy recommendation if you haven’t checked it out yet.

    Yay! Never played the sequel on the Wii, and have been having a good time with the port of the first one, so I'm in.

      Same here. Loved the first one. Although I never finished it... Which reminds me 🙂

    I purchased Lost Winds in the APP store when it launched, and ended up deleting it due to the frustrating controls. After seeing this post, I decided to give it another shot and must say that it is an absolute delight, now that the control issues have been addressed. Lovely art design and a mellow pace, and it has charm for days. The sequel is a slam dunk for me....

      Agreed on the fixed controls, they are pretty much perfect now.

    Just finished the first and will be very happy to buy the sequel day one.
