They made a sequel to Partia?!? Instabuy! The original was one of the greats despite being largely overlooked.

Hadn't discovered the original before today. This looks like something I would love (or at least my oldest son who is a big FE fan would). I'm more of an Advance Wars fan than Fire Emblem, but still turn based strategy like this is pretty rare on iOS and I may just make this my purchase of the week.

I never did get around to picking up the first one. Now I'm wondering if I should just skip it and go straight for this sequel?

I don't think it'll matter either way. I think these are standalone titles enough that prior knowledge probably doesn't matter.

I'm reading through the thread for the first game. http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=167139

Now I see that I did discover the game before but then forgot about it while waiting for an update. Seems the TA review (3/5) didn't help my decision either. Still I may go back and buy the first game and this one since I am a fan of the genre and these are pure premium games.

Despite my appreciation of a sequel the developers are forthcoming in stating this is a non-retina non-widescreen game. The gameplay is good but even Partia 2 does not have a polished modern presentation.

I do like the developer's story but want to see a gameplay vid to see if the dialogue and chess mode are worth twice the price of the original. Not sure who will take one for the team in this scenario.

Is Partia 2 going to be released on Android too?

I think it's already out, isn't it?

Partia2?!?? Fangirl squee!

Seriously, though, excellent news. I was so disappointed when the devs made it sound like they'd never do a sequal.

And, quite frankly, I think the appstore has evolved to be more open to a game like this now. Very happy to see this.
