Let’s be real. We are all always looking forward to the next big release in mobile gaming. The industry is booming right now and with so many players in the mix, it is hard to say when the next big title that will revolutionize mobile gaming will come out. Right now, there are just too many developers who are looking to grab a piece of the cake by putting out rehashes of what we have seen over and over again from other development parties as well. However, if there is one original title on the mobile platform that we have grown to love and adore over the years it is Soul Knight. And now, with the announcement of the new Soul Knight universe game, there is a lot to look forward to.
The Soul Knight franchise is one that almost every mobile gamer is undoubtedly familiar with. In fact, it is one of those games on mobile that simply must not be skipped. Now that the company behind the original game, ChillyRoom, has announced that they are making a new Soul Knight universe game, it is all but confirmed that there is going to be a lot of noise for the new game, given the response that the first game got from the audience. I’m personally really excited about the new installment in the franchise and the way that it is being expanded into an even bigger universe. It seems that things are finally coming together for ChillyRoom, and that means more fun for us.
So let us find out a little bit more about the franchise and why we are so excited about the new game.
New Soul Knight Universe Game: Announcement
For those of you who are new to the mobile gaming community, I am sure that there is some well-needed context here. The Soul Knight universe game that is in question belongs to the franchise that was started off by ChillyRoom back in 2017 when they released their first game in the franchise by the name of Soul Knight. It was an action game with top-down gameplay that prioritized fun over everything else while retaining good lore of its own at the same time. While this was something that wasn’t planned intentionally at the time, the lore of the game is one of its defining elements and is also the reason that we are getting a new Soul Knight universe game at all.
The new Soul Knight universe game does not really have a title or an official name yet. All that the developer has announced is that they are developing a new game in the aforementioned universe and that it is going to be a precursor to what we have already seen in Soul Knight. The new game is going to be a proper RPG that is set in a 2.5D world that will allow us to learn more about what it is that happened in the Soul Knight Universe before the original game. The game is going to have a main storyline that will have players aiming to bring peace and order to the Soul Knight universe, while also setting the premise for most of the Soul Knight characters.
These are just some things that are indisputably important for fans of the game, and I couldn’t agree more. It is important that a lore be well backed by the stories that it aims to tell. And it seems that ChillyRoom is looking to create that story and that depth to its characters with the new Soul Knight universe game. As a fan of RPGs, that makes me happy inside and I’m really grateful for it.

Soul Knight Universe Game Release Date
Now, given the fact that we don’t even know the title of the game, it is a little difficult to talk about the release date. To state things clearly, the developer ChillyRoom hasn’t announced any date for the release of its newest game. But if I had to state from experience, I would say that a 2023 release is in order. Anything earlier than that is wishful thinking, and I don’t think it is going to happen.
Soul Knight: Outlook
Now, I’m someone who is actually very enthusiastic about mobile games, and more so when it come to RPGs. The Soul Knight franchise has already proven itself to the people that it matters to. The new game is something that can steer the course of the franchise though. So given what we have so far, the Soul Knight Prequel is looking to be quite the upcoming blockbuster.
