LONDON and NEW YORK, June 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — It’s the witching hour once again! King Digital Entertainment plc (NYSE: KING), a leading interactive entertainment company for the mobile world and creator of global sensations Candy Crush Saga and Farm Heroes Saga, today announced it has brought players back under the spell of one of its original breakout hits with the launch of Bubble Witch Saga 2. This all-new instalment of the ever-popular bubblicious bubble shooter enchants players with a wide variety of all-new bubble bursting game action. Enhancements include an appealing and whimsical storyline, upgraded bewitching characters, dynamic visuals, exciting episodic adventures, and much more. A “wand”erful new edition to the casual gaming scene, Bubble Witch Saga 2 has been optimised for play on mobile devices and is now available across iOS, Google Android and Facebook.
Bubble Witch Saga 2 presents a spellbinding next chapter to Bubble Witch Saga, which has been enjoyed by millions of devoted players on both Facebook and mobile devices since it launched on Facebook in September 2011. Where the original Bubble Witch Saga was set in the East and drew from the wicked world of evil, Bubble Witch Saga 2 brings gamers into the enchanted land of the West with the goal of doing good. The game’s main character, Stella the good witch, and her two trusty feline sidekicks, take action to defeat the wretched ‘Morgana The Boss’ and work to rid Witch Country of all its evil spirits by completing missions to collect magic elements trapped within the bubbles. Players must join Stella on this daunting quest to fend off dark spirits plaguing the land by traveling through the different kingdoms and solving a multitude of levels through bubble bursting fun.
A free-to-play mobile game, Bubble Witch Saga 2 features more than 70 bubblific levels at launch. The levels offer an exciting range of all-new game mechanics that will keep players engaged and on the tip of their broomsticks throughout the journey to help Stella. Players can achieve top scores by creating groups of three or more magical bubbles and blasting them within the specified move limits. For every shot that makes a bubble crackle and burst, players earn new spiders at the bottom of the screen and receive higher points by making the bubbles fall into more valuable cauldrons.
In the pursuit of good, players can go further into the world of Witch Country by utilising additional boosters and gameplay modes (Classic Mode, Save Mode and Wheel Mode) that allow them to more easily collect and clear groups of bubbles and magical elements. And, as with all King games, Bubble Witch Saga 2 on mobile can be synced to Facebook so players can unlock new levels and access leader boards without losing their progress in the game.
“Whether you’re an existing Bubble Witch Saga fan, or new to the franchise, Bubble Witch Saga 2 is a game that offers exciting new characters and challenges and can be played across platforms,” says Jan Wedekind, Business Performance Director at King’s Barcelona studio. “In this next iteration we really focused on optimising the gameplay for mobile devices, and as a result we have created a game we are truly proud of and excited for people to download and start playing.”
Bubble Witch Saga 2 is available to download now on iOS and Android devices and Facebook.
