Play’n GO announced the release of Troll Hunters 2 into the market today, a sequel to their hit 2013 slot Troll Hunters.
After a hugely successful exclusivity period with Kindred, Trolls Hunters 2 is now being introduced to the market on general release.
The game was a big hit with the operator who announced it in September last year with a campaign under the hashtag #2019GameOfTheYear.
Troll Hunters 2 is a gridslot centred around the Troll Hunters, Ylva, Borghild and Astrid, protecting their village form a fearsome troll threat. Once again, Play’n GO have taken their popular gridslot format and tweaked it to bring a new dimension to their brand of entertainment.
In this title, each character has a unique bonus feature, letting players decide which character they would prefer to play with as part of the narrative. It also includes the supplier’s well-known Win Spin feature incorporated into its free spins, which guarantees players a win on each Win Spin.
Troll Hunters 2 is another example of Play’n GO bringing a fresh perspective to already known characters and using narrative to entertain and link titles together, similar to their Egyptian and Rich Wilde series of games.
Martin Zettergren, CPO of Play’n GO, believes that creating sequels is a very delicate balance:
“There are many factors to consider when creating a sequel, or adding to a series of games. While you want to capture the familiarity of the original and keep the elements that made it successful in the first place, you can’t simply retread old ground and expect the same results.
We’ve always maintained that we only revisit titles when we feel we can bring a new dimension to what’s gone before, and Troll Hunters 2 is a perfect example.”
