King announces Bubble Witch Saga 2 for Facebook, mobile


King has announced the upcoming launch of Bubble Witch Saga 2, taking players back into the magical world of one of its original breakout hits. The first Bubble Witch Saga launched on Facebook in September 2011, and still has over 11 million monthly active users, according to our app tracking service AppData.

Where the first game took players to the ‘East,’ a land filled with wicked witches, Bubble Witch Saga 2 will take players to the ‘West’ with the goal of being good. Each level offers a “range of all-new game mechanics,” as players explore Witch Country and use new boosters to clear bubbles from the board.

While a new experience, fans will definitely recognize the game as part of the ‘Saga’ series. Users will shoot colored orbs towards formations at the top of the screen, with fallen bubbles bouncing off of spiders for combo points, before falling into buckets that line the bottom of the board.

Users can boost their progress even more with power-ups, like rainbow bubbles, and they’ll earn up to three stars on each stage, depending on their score.

Bubble Witch Saga 2 is coming soon to Facebook and mobile in the US. The mobile version will sync back to Facebook, so players can access their progress on any device, at any time. Check back soon for more.
