Cartoon Network has ordered a second season of “Mighty Magiswords,” and will launch a new mobile game to expand the franchise. The animated-series follows the adventures of Prohyas and Vambre, a sibling team of “Warriors for Hire” who embark on heroic quests using their special swords called Magiswords. The MagiMobile app, and corresponding new RPG installment, will allow fans to collect swords and go questing just like their favorite characters. The newest mobile game hopes to bring new interactivity from the Mighty Magiswords world to players, and will launch in a few days. The app will also allow users to use their collections in active gameplay while also gathering and upgrading more Magiswords via the automatic content recognition cues in Mighty Magiswords programming.
In today’s announcement Cartoon stated that season two “will find Prohyas and Vambre embarking on epic adventures and even more hilarious quests in pursuit of the latest and greatest Magiswords to add to their coveted collections”.
The new RPG installment will be coming to iTunes, Google Play and Amazon, all for for free, on February 16, 2017. Called “Surely You Quest,” the game will offer over 400 pieces of original content including interactive shorts, narrative vlogs hosted by the Warriors, a multitude of digital games along with the already mentioned MagiMobile service.
