NinjaBee - the developers behind http://www.trueachievements.com/Band-of-Bugs-xbox-360.htm
- today announced an upcoming sequel for their most-successful XBLA title http://www.trueachievements.com/game.aspx?gameid=1845
, the sadly non-alliterative A World of Keflings
Having outgrown their own kingdom, the Keflings will now have multiple kingdoms to explore, each with its own climate, resources and culture. The game will retain Xbox LIVE Avatar support, and will add a new local multiplayer to the laid-back strategy game.
"A World of Keflings is much more than a sequel," said Steve Taylor, President of NinjaBee. "It's a new game with a ton of new features, including some innovative ideas that stand out from both Live Arcade and full retail games. A World of Keflings also has a new story focus, with new exotic lands, characters, quests, buildings, customization options, and a lot more."
"When we set out to make a second Keflings game we decided that we were going to do it right and make it a whole new experience that clearly was bigger and better than the first," said Brent Fox, NinjaBee's Art Director. "A World of Keflings captures all the charm and casual-style of play of the first game, but adds more depth, humor and a ton of features players have requested."
A World of Keflings
is currently schedule for release on the very precise date of "later this year." Check out IGN's official image gallery for the first handful of screenshots and concept art from the game at the external link below.
