Amazing new season-switching gameplay. Incredible new wind powers at the tips of your fingers. Beautiful visuals. Expansive new environments to explore. Charming new characters, and an absorbing storyline. Each element builds on the success of the first game to make Frontier’s ‘LostWinds2: Winter of the Melodias’ an unmissable experience on iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch.

As you journey through all-new expansive areas of Mistralis - using Enril the Wind Spirit’s amazing new abilities to power young Toku’s jumps and glides and thwart evil Balasar and his minions - you’ll experience realtime radiosity, dynamic lights, dynamic shadows and reflective & refractive ice shaders. These advanced graphical techniques realize the full potential of your Apple device and give the already gorgeous game even extra depth and added beauty.

Harness the brilliance of nature: Sonte, Spirit of Seasons' astonishing powers let you instantly transform Mistralis between Summer and Winter at will to aid your progress
Frozen Winter ponds and waterfalls become teeming Summer pools in which Toku can dive and unlock secrets
Form snowballs from the air or manipulate moisture-laden clouds to help with your quest
Master Enril’s rediscovered incredible cyclone power, using it to transport Toku, smash powerful enemies and even drill through the rock around you
Expansive new regions of Mistralis provide spectacular arenas for Toku’s jumps and glides
New enemies and familiar foes to buffet, smash, freeze, burn and douse

Release date and pricing are yet to be announced.

I am continually loving the first release of 'Lost Winds.' It's visually lovely and the gameplay is stimulating and satisfying. Hopefully, we won't have to wait too long for 'Winter of the Melodias.' I know you have a loyal following eager for its release!
