We’ve just received word that the sequel to the delightful platformer LostWinds will be coming to iOS “very soon.” We enjoyed the original LostWinds, but found it a little on the short side. This sequel, called LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias, expands the game’s story and environment, and might be just what we’re looking for. Check out the gameplay video below.
When Winter of the Melodias originally came out on Wii in 2009 it was well-received by critics. The chief new gameplay mechanic is the ability to control the seasons by switching between summer and winter at will. You also have a more powerful cyclone ability that lets you jump higher, dig into the ground, and transport water, which comes in handy for some of the game’s puzzles.
We’re looking forward to getting our hands on LostWinds: Winter of the Melodia, but if you haven’t played the original, now would be a good time to grab it.
