Unveil the secret of the legendary clan with Straw Hat Legacy for iOS


October 6 th, 2011 - New York, New York - Evileggplant Studios is pleased to announce the released and immediate worldwide availability of the long awaited Straw Hat Legacy for iPhone and iPod touch. Being a testing blend of quest, adventure and action game genres, Straw Hat Legacy is a great source of fresh challenge and excitement.

Straw Hat Legacy takes players into an ancient Japan telling the story of a young empress Yuki who lost her father and her throne when her country, the Empire of Kishimoto, was invaded by the evil Lord Nobunaga. Samurai Takashi, second in command of the majestic Straw Hat clan, executed the escape of Yuki to the peaceful Nobee forest where they lived in peace for many years undetected. The first episode of the game put players in control of Yuki while she is training in the art of swift speed and rapid movement to dethrone the evil Lord Nobunaga and get revenge for her father's death.

Straw Hat Legacy involves plenty of running and concentration. The game implements a progressive speed building platformer which gets faster as players move forward requiring good speed reflexes and full attention to recognize and overcome the obstacles on their way. The soundtrack complements the high-tension feeling of the game and makes it more immersive and entertaining. There is also OpenFeint integration and 11 achievements to unlock which adds another layer of challenge to the game and keeps all users entertained for hours.

Fun and interesting from start to finish, this fast paced reaction based running game features beautifully balanced gameplay, hand-drawn design and smooth touch controls delivering an addictive experience with tons of replay value.

“We are thrilled about releasing our first game in the Straw Hat Legacy series which kick-starts the adventures of the young Empress Yuki.  Straw Hat Legacy has a great story to tell and is loaded with features and content to provide our gaming enthusiasts with hours upon hours of entertainment.  We will continue to develop the storyline with updates and sequels unfolding the intriguing plot.” - says Wael Ouaijan, CEO at Evileggplant Studios.
