Ao Oni 2 released worldwide for iOS and Android
Released by UUUM CO., LTD
Nothing ever seems to go quite right for Japanese school students in books, films, or games, and Ao Oni 2, the sequel to Japan's cult-hit, Ao Oni, looks to follow this trend after being released worldwide for iOS and Android devices. A student named Hiroshi and his friends are trapped in an abandoned school, and as they try to escape they will come face-to-face with the Ao Oni, translated as “Blue Demon”.
Amidst the horror, which is said to be a simple feat, emphasised mainly by the soundtrack to keep gamers on edge, Ao Oni 2 features “clever riddles, puzzles and thrilling survival action sequences”. Each character is playable and has a separate path through the story. Only by experiencing each of their perspectives is it possible to reveal the truth behind the relentless Ao Oni. Alongside its worldwide release, Ao Oni 2 can now be played in English, Chinese and Korean, in addition to its original Japanese.
Ao Oni seems like Japan's answer to the West's Slenderman craze, and the original game, released by “noprops” for PC in 2009 has inspired novels, anime, films and also racked up about 50 million views on YouTube. In Japan, Ao Oni is a cult hit. It's no wonder that GOODROID, a Japanese developer, and UUUM, an influencer network, worked together to create Ao Oni 2. The sequel was released in December 2016 and launched to the number one spot on iOS and Android within a few days. It was only a matter of time before the blue demon was set upon the world.
Ao Oni 2 is available for free on iOS and Android right now, and if you like the sound of puzzles, a haunting soundtrack and a blue demon chasing you around an abandoned school, this could be one for you. I'm expecting the Ao Oni to appear on my phone any moment now...
