10 years later, Toy Soldiers is getting a WW2 sequel

General excitement.

Toy Soldiers, a classic from the era of Xbox Live Arcade, is getting a full sequel more than a decade later.

Moving its tower defense action forward to World War 2, Toy Soldiers 2 will launch on PC, PlayStation, Xbox and Switch in 2021.

In the meantime, remasters of the original Toy Soldiers and follow-up Cold War will arrive for Switch to get you caught up. These will include new content, a new difficulty, plus integrated DLC and other tweaks.

A dinky wartime strategy series featuring diminutive dioramas and, yes, toy soldiers, the series has been on hiatus since 2015 spin-off Toy Soldier: War Chest gained a mixed reaction.

War Chest mixed in armies of other toys, such as fairies and (being published by Ubisoft) Ezio from Assassin's Creed. You can have a peek at our Ian playing it back in the day below.

From our first look at Toy Soldiers 2, this forthcoming sequel looks to strip things back to the series' military toy origins. There's a few clips of footage over on the Toy Soldiers 2 website.
