New iOS Games and Apps of the Week: DC Legends and more

Warner Bros. this week released its answer to Marvel's Contest of Champions to the App Store. DC Legends is a strategy role-playing game that pits both DC heroes and villains against the mutual threat Nekron. Players can build a team of their favorite DC characters while fighting Nekron and the Manhunters across iconic DC locations, like Metropolis. DC Legends is now available for free on the Apple App Store.

Square Enix released a teaser trailer for Final Fantasy Legends 2 aka Final Fantasy Dimensions 2. The trailer describes the new game as a rebirth for the series, but that's about it. Little is known about the upcoming title, such as if it will get a US release and how much it will cost.

The developers of the RPG Darkest Dungeon hinted in a recent blog post about a possible tablet release.

"Other platforms that might be a fit for DD are high on our list. Tablet immediately comes to mind; as it turns out, we accidentally designed a pretty cool touch interface from the beginning! Other console and handheld devices remain interesting as well, and we’d like to get the game to as many potential fans as possible."

Darkest Dungeon is dungeon crawler that has been released to Microsoft Windows, OS X, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Linux. The game offers a unique stress level feature that hinders a character's performance based on how much hardship they encounter. Darkest Dungeon has earned mostly positive reviews from both players and critics.
