Leading videogame publisher Iceberg Interactive has announced that the long awaited Return to Mysterious Island 2 has shipped to UK retail and will be available at all majors and good independents on Friday, October 23rd 2009. In this sequel, Mina and her monkey Jep, who you can also play as, still find themselves trapped on the same beautiful island after Mina’s rescue helicopter crashed.
While searching formerly unknown parts of the island for a new way of escaping, Mina finds that an unknown disease suddenly begins to afflict the plants, then the animal life on the island. She finds Captain Nemo’s old base and stumbles upon the ruins of an unknown civilization, in search for clues. Will she find the cure to the disease that is threatening the entire eco-system on the island?
Erik Schreuder, CEO of Iceberg Interactive says: “Return to Mysterious Island 2 is an excellent sequel to the original, but can also be played as a standalone game. Since Robinson Crusoe people have wondered what it would be like to survive on a tropical island cut off from civilization and players can live out just that feeling in this game. Features such as a Chat Module and Apple iPhone Synchronization make this a great experience that even goes beyond your PC if you want to.”
Return to Mysterious Island 2 promises to be one of the highlights of the PC autumn release schedule, along with other retail release from Iceberg Interactive including Adam’s Venture – Episode 1: The Search for the Lost Garden and Zeno Clash. Electronic Theatre will deliver in-depth reviews of all these titles, including Return to Mysterious Island 2, very shortly.
