The Drawn to Life platforming series started out on the Nintendo DS back in 2007, and in the following years saw the release of a spin-off and a sequel. The property was eventually sold to 505 Games, the same company that just announced that it's bringing a new title in the Drawn to Life series to Android, iOS, Steam, and the Nintendo Switch on December 7th. This long-awaited follow-up is called Drawn to Life: Two Realms, and it's a direct sequel that picks up where the last title left off.
The above trailer offers a quick look at what Drawn to Life: Two Realms has to offer. As you can see, this is a platforming game where you'll design your own hero that you can decorate with unlockable outfits. Ideally, you'll traverse the game's levels by utilizing a new toy placement mechanic, ultimately using these toys to help you complete your platforming goals.
Thankfully 505 Games has already made it clear that Drawn to Life: Two Realms will land as a premium release, and so the game will be available on Android and iOS for $4.99 on December 7th, and the PC and console version will be priced at $9.99. While the game isn't yet listed on the Play Store, the Steam version's listing is currently available for those that would like to place the game on their wishlist. Seeing that we have only have a month to go until the game's release, I'm hopeful the Play Store listing will pop up soon so people can pre-register before Drawn to Life: Two Realms is released. Until then, feel free to read through today's PR, lined below.

As you can see in the tweet above, Drawn To Life: Two Realms is now available on Android as well as iOS, Steam, and the Nintendo Switch. You can grab the Android version for $4.99, which is five dollars cheaper than the Steam and Nintendo Switch versions, so it's an alright deal.
Seeing that this is a new release that does not stipulate what kind of features you can expect, I've installed the title to check things out. I'm glad to report that bluetooth controller support is included, though it would seem the SteelSeries Stratus Duo does not offer the correct button mapping in this game, so you'll fare better with an Xbox controller if you require the correct button commands on the screen out of the box. At the very least, you can adjust the in-game controller mapping whenever you like, so you can also manually fix this problem if you don't own an Xbox controller. You can also control the game through the touchscreen, and while this works well enough, especially in the design sections for the title, the game's platforming feels much more responsive with a controller.
All in all, Drawn To Life: Two Realms is a welcome release on Android, and even though the controller mapping can be a little wonky, this is a new release that will hopefully see a few updates to address any of the title's rough edges. From what I've played, everything runs smoothly on my OP8, so if you're a fan of the series or simply want to check out the latest console-quality platformer to be ported to Android, you can grab Drawn To Life: Two Realms through the Play Store widget below for $4.99.
