Beastie Bay, Kairosoft’s Pokémon-alike, is coming to iOS

Friday, February 1st, 2013 by

bb_app_storeKairosoft’s Pokémon-inspired building simulation, Beastie Bay, is coming to iOS. While the simulation aspects make it a little more niche than your standard Pokémon title, Kairosoft fans will feel right at home with their brand of gameplay.

Technically, Beastie Bay is already out… in Japan. The worldwide release is an imminent inevitability, what with Beastie Bay already in English for iOS devices set to English. Now, all you have to do is wait.

However, if you just can’t wait to get your hands on Beastie Bay for iOS, it’s available for free in the Japanese App Store. All that stands between you and playing hours of Beastie Bay in English is a Japanese iTunes account. For more details, check out this post at Kairospot, the unofficial Kairosoft fan forum.

We played through Beastie Bay a few times on Android and found its free-to-play monetization methods unobtrusive. If you can ignore the ad-banner at the bottom, then you get an awesome game for free. If not, you can remove the advertisements with a $3.99 in-app purchase that also unlocks landscape orientation mode. According to the Kairospot post, that price went up to $4.99. Either way, it’s meager one-time purchase compared to what companies like Zynga and Supercell ask from you.
