The Iridion saga continues as Majesco announces the shipping of Iridion II for Game Boy Advance to retail stores everywhere. The sequel to the original Game Boy Advance launch title, Iridion 3D, Iridion II is armed with astounding graphics, a deep storyline and loads of new game play features.

"Iridion 3D was one of our most acclaimed Game Boy Advance titles and set the bar for graphic excellence on the system," said Ken Gold, Vice President of Marketing for Majesco. "With the sequel, Iridion II, we added a more in-depth story, improved the game play and made the graphics even better."

In Iridion II, a century has passed since the Iridion Empire was defeated. Humans have populated the old Iridion galaxy giving mankind freedom and peace. Suddenly, all communications with the human outposts are lost. The Iridions are back! Planet Earth is too far away to offer help.
