Oceanhorn-2-Key-Art-1.jpg

Just prior to the launch of Oceanhorn 2 in September, ATVG posted this story revealing the final trailer before the studio hit the big go button. That story is the best way to catch up on this site’s coverage of the sequel, from its initial announcement right through to launch, as I’ve packed all the necessary links into it.

Now that launch has come and gone, and some of you may have even finished it by now (with 101 Apple Arcade games to play, I’ve yet to take much of a bite out of it), it’s time to look to the future.

Today Cornfox did just that, revealing plans for some big updates in 2020.

January 2017. That’s when ATVG first caught wind of the fact that Cornfox & Bros were developing Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm, reached out to the studio, and received an encouraging response from the team:

“Yes, Apple TV is on our target list.”

Following that original story, and many stories later, here we are today, just a few days away from release. Cornfox & Bros made the official announcement today that Oceanhorn 2 will be releasing as a launch title for Apple Arcade on September 19, and along with the announcement came an entirely new story trailer which you can check out over on the next page.

Apple Arcade will release first on iOS at the end of this week, with Apple TV and iPad following at the end of the month (and macOS in October), so Apple TV gamers will have a little longer to wait to experience this very console-like title on Apple’s very console-like console. You’ll even be able to pair your PS4 or Xbox controller to your Apple TV to complete the experience.

To catch up on all the Apple Arcade details, including a massive mega-list of 61 games coming to the service, click through right here. There’s a lot of trailers to get your head around.

If you’re wanting to start getting primed for Oceanhorn 2, then over the page you’ll find links to all the stories ATVG has posted thus far, including a look at the main characters, the voice actor behind the game’s villain, and even 15 minutes of continuous gameplay footage.

Enjoy.

Voice Actor Behind Final Fantasy XV’s Noctis To Play Oceanhorn 2 Villain

FFXV_0330-13.jpg

Despite all the emo-boy-band-on-a-road-trip jokes, Final Fantasy XV was a solid addition to the decades-old JRPG series.

I’ve never been one to get much into crafting in RPGs, but discovering new recipes to rustle up around the campfire was a treat, as was the more immediate, action-based combat that hid subtle layers of depth.

A third strength behind FFXV’s success was its quality voice acting. Ever since Final Fantasy X, vocals have been a key element in connecting the player to Square Enix’s stories, and the voice acting in XV hit a high-water mark for the series.

Earlier this week, studio Cornfox & Bros. revealed the actor behind FFXV’s Noctis – Ray Chase – will voice the villain Mesmeroth in its upcoming JRPG, Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm.

Anytime ATVG posts news of its development, traffic flows. And from what’s been revealed so far, that high level of anticipation is definitely warranted.

“I’m personally quite convinced that we will eventually cover the same platforms as we did with Oceanhorn 1, tvOS (Apple TV) of course being one of the main platforms,” wrote Cornfox’s Antti Viljamaa.

So with optimism, ATVG continues to keep a keen eye on developments, even making room for the sequel in our Most Anticipated Apple TV Games of 2019.
