Cut the Rope 2 coming later this year

Cut the Rope is finally getting a proper sequel, after countless spin-offs. Cut the Rope 2 is launching this holiday season, with shiny "re-imagined" features. But what those features are haven't been detailed.

Om Nom will return, likely still hungry for candy, but the sequel will also introduce new characters. There will also be "interactive environments" and, crucially, a brand new storyline.

"We remain dedicated to our mission: examining the science of fun," ZeptoLab CEO Misha Lyalin said in a press statement (via Polygon). "That means building experiences that players love. Cut the Rope 2 is a massive step forward for the game. Amazing graphics, gameplay and characters drive a brand new experience that fans are going to love."
