Brandnew Boy, Oozoo's Unreal Engine powered iOS action anime-themed martial arts game has just unveiled an exciting new update in the iTunes App Store. Much more involved than a few bug fixes, this new update is packed with the features players have most requested, and overflowing with extras.
The game's title refers to the main player character, an amnesiac adolescent martial artist known throughout most of the game simply as Rookie. Prior to this new update, those who would have preferred to play a female version of Rookie were out of luck - but Brandnew Boy now features the option of playing a female character. The ability to choose a female avatar becomes available at level 5, and there is already a selection of different looks for the new lady of the hour. Rookie's wardrobe has been considerably expanded as well, with the option to use in-game currency to completely transform the look of the character. The changes aren't all cosmetic, however - new weapons have been added, as well as new abilities. Some of the new abilities are exclusive to playing as a female character.
The addition of Infinity mode gives players a chance to bank some serious in-game currency by showing off their combat combos against a never-ending horde of enemies rather than by opening their wallet. While the stat and level boosts gained in Infinity mode aren't retained, the cash produced by enemies players vanquish is.
Brandnew Boy has already proven to be an App Store superstar, with its exceptional 3D graphics, colossal combos, and unique styling. The new update, however, puts Brandnew Boy in a league of its own - one which rival games will have a difficult time living up to.
Brandnew Boy is available now in the iTunes App Store, at a special discounted price of $0.99 for a limited time; the regular retail price is $3.99. For those who have yet to explore Rookie's mysterious world, now is the perfect time to snag the newly updated game at a great price.
Brandnew Boy 1.1.0 is now $.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Games category.
