Description

Swords & Soldiers II is a 2D sidescrolling strategy game exclusively available on the eShop for Nintendo Wii U.

Follow Viking Chieftain Redbeard in an adventure that takes him across the globe (from the snowy peaks of Redbeard’s homeland to the Netherworld and the even more demonic party island Barbeardos), and pits him against the all-new Demon Horde and Persian Army factions.

The world needs some serious savin’, and it looks like the meatloving Redbeard and his local Kebab salesman Al’Yucaneet have an important part to play in events to come.

With Swords & Soldiers II, Ronimo Games seeks to create a serious strategy title in a not-so-serious setting. Don't let the cartoony visuals fool you - this is a challenging game, and playing it against other players in the local multiplayer mode will result in some serious competition. For younger players and users looking for a more casual experience, the game comes with an optional 'Easy Mode'.

History

Swords & Soldiers II has been in development since late 2012. It is a sequel to our award-winning debut title, which originally released in May 2009. It has been in development for over two and a half years, and it's now available for download in the eShop on Nintendo Wii U!
