If you are a fan of awesome action games, you probably know about Platinum Games and its reputation. However, the studio was well-known mostly for the games it developed for PC and consoles. Now, it decided to explore other territories as well. Therefore, it started a collaboration with DeNa, a mobile game developer, and will bring out a new Android and iOS title called World of Demons.
Platinum Games brings action games on mobile
Being a great action game developer couldn’t stay limited only to PC and consoles, so Platinum Games switched to the mobile medium as well. Therefore, it came up with the idea for World of Demons, a game that is free to play, but sustains itself by using in-app purchases.
Platinum Games is a Japanese studio, so it took inspiration from its own culture. The main protagonists come from the country’s mythology and legends, Oni and Yokai. In terms of imagery, we can see a big influence from Japanese history as well, since samurais are one of the main elements of the game.
World of Demons looks great and is easy to play
If you’re looking forward to playing great action games on mobile, get ready for the release of World of Demons. The iOS version is out this summer but, if you have an Android device, you’ll have to wait a little more until you can play it.
This decision came as Platinum Games wanted to explore more fields, and expand its number of players. It started a few collaborations with some mobile studios, but they haven’t really been working on action titles. Lost Order, for instance, is more about strategy, so it really needed to release one of its landmark games in a mobile form.
Apart from having catchy visuals and fascinating characters, World of Demons is easy to play too. It uses touch controls, and doesn’t ask you to perform complicated combos to attack and destroy your enemies. In fact, the game automatically makes you perform attacks. Also, you have some special buttons on screen in case you want to do it on your own.
