It was just last week we learned Mika Mobile's follow-up to Battleheart was submitted to Apple, so when we saw the game show up in the New Zealand App Store this morning we weren't totally sure if it was some sort of soft-launch, an accident, or what. Well, it turns out it was simply a very fast approval process and the release date was set for May 28th, a day earlier than the typical App Store release day, which means that Battleheart Legacy [$4.99] is now officially out in the US and the rest of the world.

It's been quite a journey, but Battleheart Legacy is finally here. Not that it was a particularly long development, as the game was only announced last November, but the original Battleheart was just so great that it made this follow-up especially hard to wait for. I'm impatiently watching my own download progress tick by ever so slowly, but so far all the early impressions in our forums have been overwhelmingly positive. Whether you were a fan of the first Battleheart and are looking for this unique spin on the formula, or are simply a fan of action RPGs of all kinds, you'll definitely want to check out Battleheart Legacy.

      This cat always seems to have the money for new games.
      Makes me wonder where he carries it. I mean, he doesn't have pockets... So... Hmm.

      I also feel kind of sad for the guy. He clearly loves mobile gaming, but the poor bastard has no thumbs.

    • Fep52

      I came here for the cat, and was not disappointed.

  • Aleric

    Awesome! So glad it's out today!

  • baldeagle86

    Lets crash the AppStore!

  • C. Stubb

    It's a shame this won't run on my iPod 4th gen…stuck with the original, I guess. ;)

    • dibdib

      Your Ipod has half the memory of an Iphone from the same generation. So you're actually three generations behind at this point.

      • LanceAvion

        Well considering that the A4 chip itself is three generations behind, and the iPod has been gimped with only 256Mb of RAM, we can safely say it's even worse off than that.

    YES!!! I'm going to be extremely unproductive in my cubicle tomorrow!!

  • Based Xatu

    I bought this as soon as I saw it was 11 pm, lol. This made my night.

    Definition of the word instabuy. And the game is beautiful. True retina on iPad Air, unlike the vast majority of games that use shoddy upscaling.

  • Leeabe51

    It's fun, but it's no Battleheart so far. Hopefully it gets a bit more challenging.

    • nini

      Remember that you can amp the difficulty up in the options.

  • Amenbrother

    Loving this!

  • uFinKnow

    Cheers Mika!!! Everyone support these great premium games before they are a thing of the past. Excellent game so far, off to to get the crystal for the king.

  • ste86uk

    Don't even think just buy!! Also Mika did say it's been in development for 2 and a half years which is a long development in my books.

  • iValerio1990

    Need more memory...need more memory..what can i delete?

    • curtneedsaride

      I deleted Penny Arcade 3 to put this one on. As much as I loved that game, I needed a change! And I have no regrets installing this one in it's place. This game is awesome!

      • iValerio1990

        I deleted modern combat 4, waiting the 5..

  • makitango

    did i just pause the game? do it like the rest of us and download the sh** out of it, it's as fun as iOS gaming gets, and it's a classic release, meaning no IAPs. You don't pay for savegames, you pay for the full game! ;)

  • Stustaff

    So I LOVE battleheart is there any reason to think I would like this? I respect but did not enjoy his other games...

    Other than instabuy etc can anyone give opinion on if it's actually a good game? Is it anything like battleheart?

    Thanks

  • DemoEvolved

    I adored the charm and single screen structure of battle heart. I liked the mission tree. This one dropped the charming gfx, what else is different? Thx

  • ashmike3

    How many hours gameplay? If anyone knows.

  • DaQuieTruth

    Great game its a 60+ hour game but I already beat it today with iFile, but even with all max stats the colosseum is the real boss and best place to get the secret weapons. "Note" all secret weapons have gold around their edges.
