Time is a funny thing when you're waiting for a highly-anticipated game. It feels like just yesterday that Cornfox & Bros. announced Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm, the sequel to the smash-hit action RPG Oceanhorn [$7.99], but in fact it was way back in August of 2016. Then in January of last year we got a bit of new info on the game as well as some new screenshots, followed by a lengthy in-game video of Oceanhorn 2 the following May. That, too, feels like it was just yesterday, but in fact it's been a whopping 8 months since we've had any sort of update on what's going on with Oceanhorn 2. Today Cornfox & Bros. broke that silence with a new blog post detailing what they've been up to, and they've released a handful of gorgeous new screenshots to go with it. Check 'em out.

That, my friends, is some good stuff. So, what exactly has Cornfox & Bros. been up to since we last heard about Oceanhorn 2? Well it's not really that complicated, they've simply been adding more and more to the game, building a huge world and a huge adventure for us to enjoy. Surprisingly, the development team is just 5 people, so making a game of this scope is understandably taking quite a long time. And for reference, the screens above were taken on an iPhone 7 Plus, so I expect the game to look even better on Apple's even newer devices. The developers hope to release more looks at the game, including some new videos, in the coming weeks as progress continues, so keep an eye out for that and be sure to follow along in our forums for all the latest news on the very promising Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm.

    damn dude looks like they're really swinging for the fences on this.

    Why aren't there more Zelda-like games for iOS? is Oceanhorn the only one of this genre?

    • lezrock

      Nope: Ittle Dew

      There are some ports of zelda like games such as Y's I & II but I have always been amazed at how few zelda-like games exist in general.

      Horn used to be like Zelda...but it died when the new OS took effect...

    • Deewin

      Making Zelda type games on iOS isn’t financially viable. Most apps with a one time purchases go unnoticed in favor of those freemium games from bigger brands and published. The days of indies making good money on games seems here seems to be to be long gone.

  • lezrock

    Looking fantastic!

    What model of iPhone do you need to have to play this I hope that I can play it on my iPhone 6+ because I can’t afford a new iPhone 😞 I played the first Oceanhorn and it is my most favorite game on iOS so please please make it available for the IPhone 6+

    • http://mulderc.blogspot.com/ Cameron Mulder

      If I was to guess I would imagine it would be 6S or newer. It will likely also be on AppleTV and that might be a cheaper way to be able to play if you can't get a new iphone.

      • boydstr

        Now when I think of it how does the Apple TV is working what I mean is some games can be played only for example on iPhone 7/8/X how they do that on the Apple TV do you need to buy every year a new model Apple TV to play the latest games like on the iPhone?

      • http://mulderc.blogspot.com/ Cameron Mulder

        Generally speaking you do NOT need a new iPhone to play the latest games on iOS. The iPhone 6 will probably be about 4 years old by the time oceanhorn 2 comes out. Which means you basically need a new iPhone about every 4 years and many, if not most, iphone users upgrade every 2 years or so.

        The current ApplyTV has an A10X chip in it that should be good for many years to come in terms of gaming.

      • boydstr

        Thanks for the update.

      Or how about this -- they should make it the best it can be, and you can get a new phone when you're ready! 🙂

      Is it open world like Breath of the Wild?

      • boydstr

        Looks like it I didn’t play BotW but watched some YouTube vids and that game is fantastic Nintendo is king in gameplay they always come with great and original game concepts.

    • skilarbabcock

      If you're have a switch, it'll be on there as well

      • boydstr

        No sadly I don’t have a Switch I bought not so long ago a PS4pro and a Sony Android 4K tv so I hope that Oceanhorn 2 is coming to Android so I can play it because this game is one of my all time favorites and the developers improved their latest game in so many ways so I am really overhyped and can’t wait to play it.

      • skilarbabcock

        It should come to PS4 too

      • boydstr

        Oké great than it is surly a instabuy for me,thanks for your info Skilar.3

  • http://www.dLifeHD.com dLifeHD

    This looks amazing! I can't wait to play this, I really enjoyed the first one.

  • repapermunky

    I hope they fix the hitboxes/collision detection from that first video. And maybe make the movement a bit smoother/quicker in order to compete with games like BoTW. I know that sounds ridiculous but I had people in another forum comparing Oceanhorn original to BoTW, that's just how the market is; despite it being an amazing game that is way older, consumers don't realize how amazing it really was.

    In any case, I will be buying this game, and preordering if made available! Should be loads of fun!

    • skilarbabcock

      People compared it because the character looked a lot like BOTW link

  • Deewin

    If it’s good I would consider buying this if it was launched in switch. I have no interest in playing this in my iOS devices nor buying a controller for them.

    • Eric Zinke

      Pretty sure it will be available on other platforms. The first game has been ported just about everywhere. I have no doubt that this one will be on the Switch.

  • Saveria

    I thought first oceanhorn had nice potential, some problems like far too much block pushing in dungeons and the bosses were all really frustrating to me. I still look forward to this. I believe this team can make a better sequel.

  • tubaros

    Looks good - a little Fable esque imho

  • thelastdon

    Do you think this will come out for the switch also?

    • http://wizodd.tumblr.com Wizard of Odyssey

      The first one did, so why not?

    • http://mulderc.blogspot.com/ Cameron Mulder

      Eventually yes, but as of now the only announced platform is iOS.

    • Rothgarr

      The first one is available for Android, PlayStation 4, iOS, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, and PlayStation Vita. So I'd say there's a great chance of it coming to Switch -- but my guess is it will launch first for iOS with the other platforms coming as time allows.

  • rhinofinger

    Really excited for this - hope we see it released this year!

  • BasementBoi

    Really looking forward to this. Another good Zelda clone on Android is what i want.

  • MasterR

    Can't wait for the switch version
