Zynga announces CastleVille Legends, coming soon to mobile
Zynga has announced CastleVille Legends, a sequel of sorts to Zynga’s popular Facebook game CastleVille, which launched in the fall of 2011. The Facebook game gives players a chance to build a medieval inspired kingdom, complete with magical creatures, spells and monsters to battle and defeat along the way.
CastleVille Legends is already available on mobile in “select markets,” including on iOS in Canada. The game is a brand new experience for phones and tablets that introduces a brand new kingdom to create, as players rescue characters from the Facebook game from crystal prisons. These characters include Yvette and Raphael, two of the main heroes from the Facebook experience.
The original CastleVille on Facebook skyrocketed to over 38 million monthly active players just weeks after its launch in 2011, but that number has steadily declined since. A few peaks in traffic in September 2012 and January 2013 helped slow the decline, but the game has now fallen to just under 4 million monthly active players, and 473,000 daily active players, according to our app tracking service AppData.
The worldwide release date for Castleville Legends hasn’t been revealed, but interested players with access to a Canadian iTunes account can now download the game for free.
