Just this past Friday we brought you the news that the cult Flash RPG series Sonny would be making its way to iOS soon, and showed you a few new screens and linked to a preview on the Armor Games website that went more in-depth to the battle mechanics in the game. Also, based on some of the information available at that time, it sounded like this new version of Sonny would be including everything from the first two games as well as some additional storyline content and a conclusion to the series. However, that’s not quite the case! The version of Sonny that’s coming to iOS is actually a totally new version, and it’s also NOT Sonny 3. For full clarification, here’s the official statement, followed by a brand new trailer for Sonny:
Sonny remixes and evolves upon its Flash-based predecessors, first released in 2007, with a new storyline, expanded gameplay features, enhanced visuals and more, making it ideal for both long-time fans and newcomers alike. Players will discover a unique adventure with familiar faces showing up in different ways, a new story arc and ending with divergent plot twists, and original enemies and locations. The game also features detailed 2D characters and environments, graphic novel-style artwork by Jet Kimchrea and an engrossing original score by David Orr.
While this might be disappointing to fans of the existing games who were looking to play through them again, it sounds like there will still be plenty to chew on in this new Sonny with the appearance of familiar characters and places as well as other nods to the previous games. Also, a brand new game, in my opinion, is typically more exciting than a remake of existing games. Now, the best news of all? Sonny is coming VERY soon, and by that I mean this week on Thursday, January 12th. No official word on price just yet though I’ve got a question out about that and I’ll update this post if I find anything out, but either way we won’t have long to wait as Sonny will be arriving in just a couple of days.
UPDATE: In a new post on the Armor Games website, they list the price for Sonny at $2.99.
