Game Dev Story 2 Android, thumbnail 1
Famed developer Kairosoft has released screenshots of Game Dev Story 2.

The first Game Dev Story's iPhone release propelled the Japanese developer to worldwide popularity. 

The original game had players setting up their own game studios, micro-managing staff, drawing up contracts, inventing consoles, acquiring licenses, and attending game award ceremonies. It was a massive hit, earning a duo of Silver Awards for iPhone and Android here at Pocket Gamer.

Social features

Its sequel - which Kairosoft has previously stated will come to iPhone - will feature more of the same, though Kairosoft has revealed that updated features will include social elements, such as leaderboards and the ability to share employees with friends.

You can check out the sneak preview screenshots (of the PC version) released by Kairosoft in the image gallery to the right.

Our own features editor Mark Brown recently celebrated the release of Kairosoft’s latest outing Pocket Academy with an extensive look at its (Japanese only) back catalogue from the last 14 years. According to Kairosoft, we can look forward to seeing some of these titles in the near future.

Soon

The developer states on its Facebook page that it plans to “slowly release [its] games around the world” and that it will release them “in the order from oldest to newest Japanese Games.”

Department Store Story has just been released on iPhone in Japan, so it should hit our shores soon.

If you just can’t wait for your next Kairo fix then check out Game Dev Story, Hot Springs Story on iPhone, Pocket Academy on iPhone and Android, or Grand Prix Story on Android.

Wait... More of the same?
You mean it's like GDS1 but with social features?
Please clarify and that PC game was released in 1990s (suspecting to be in 1999 on top of my head) so it's not so "sneaky" at all.
