Majesty Fantasy Sim Franchise Spawns Multi-Platform Tower Defense Spin-Off


Yesterday, Mike reviewed Majesty 2: Monster Kingdom, lamenting at the end about how it is the game’s closing chapter until a Majesty 3 inevitably comes along. Sadly, there’s no news of a true Majesty sequel (yet!), but Paradox Interactive has revealed that the series will live on in another form.

In late January at the Paradox Interactive Convention 2011, Paradox and Most Wanted Entertainment announced Defenders of Ardania, a tower defense spin-off set within the Majesty universe. A tower defense Majesty game is great on its own, but the best news of all is that the game will bring the world of Ardania to a broader audience, with multi-platform releases scheduled for Q2 2011 on PC, iPad, PSN and Xbox Live Arcade!

As for the game, Defenders of Ardania promises a mix of RTS and tower defense, featuring three playable races, the ability for players to play offensively with 24 upgradeable attacking units or defensively with 24 upgradeable tower units, powerful offensive and defensive spells, a full single-player campaign and 1-4 player online or LAN multiplayer (plus an option for AI bots). Check out the following teaser trailer, video interview and screenshot gallery for more!
