Cartoon Network Builds on Franchise Success to Broaden the
Mighty Magiswords World
Multiplatform Wins Pave Way for Season Two Greenlight and New Mobile Game
Surely You Quest
Burbank, CA - Turner's Cartoon Network has charted wins across platforms with Mighty Magiswords leading to a season two order of the hit comedy series and the launch of a new mobile game, Surely You Quest. Mighty Magiswords follows the adventures of Prohyas and Vambre, a sibling team of "Warriors for Hire" who embark on heroic quests using outrageously funny swords called Magiswords. The immersive MagiMobile app empowers fans to collect swords like the Warriors, and the newest mobile game further heightens the interactivity of the Mighty Magiswords world by allowing users to use their collections in active gameplay while also gathering and upgrading more Magiswords via the automatic content recognition cues in Mighty Magiswords programming.
Mighty Magiswords is produced at Cartoon Network Studios and created by Kyle A. Carrozza (The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water). Season two of Mighty Magiswords will find Prohyas and Vambre embarking on epic adventures and even more hilarious quests in pursuit of the latest and greatest Magiswords to add to their coveted collections.
Fans have shown they are hungry for more from the Mighty Magiswords world and Cartoon Network is ready to meet them wherever they are with Surely You Quest, an idle RPG coming to iTunes, Google Play and Amazon for free on Feb. 16. Surely You Quest connects to MagiMobile by giving fans access to their Magiswords and allowing them to expand their collections. Gamers can use the swords they previously earned in MagiMobile for gameplay in Surely You Quest, and the more fans watch and engage with MagiMobile, the more options they will have for battles in the game. Surely You Quest adds to a rich connected world of more than 400 pieces of original content including interactive shorts, narrative vlogs hosted by the Warriors, a multitude of digital games and MagiMobile. **Download a Surely You Quest gameplay video here**
