Game developer Trendy Entertainment has announced that the sequel to Dungeon Defender First Wave is launching exclusively on the Sony-Ericsson Xperia Play. The sequel, entitled Dungeon Defender Second Wave, will have 30 hours of new game play, as well as all the levels of the original game. In addition, there's a new player vs. player online game mode which users can enjoy either over WiFi or 3G. That means that gamers from all over the world can challenge each other no matter where they are. Sounds like a lot of fun.

“Dungeon Defenders is THE game that pushes Android graphics to its limits - it’s truly a full console game available on mobile,” said Agapitus Lye, President of Trendy Entertainment. “That is why we have chosen to launch it exclusively on the ultimate gaming smartphone - we can’t wait for gamers to get their hands on it on Xperia™ PLAY!”

Originally conceived for console gaming platforms like the Sony Playstation, Dungeon Defenders was moved to the mobile platform when Android caught fire around the world. But according to developers, it's the Xperia Play's gaming controls that places Second Wave into its element. With a 1 Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and Adreno GPU, and Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) OS running out of the box, the Xperia Play really unlocked the potential of the game. And Sony-Ericsson couldn't be happier, calling Dungeon Defenders the ideal ambassador for the Xperia Play platform.

In addition to it's Snapdragon processor and Ardeno graphics package, the Xperia Play has a 4″ capacitive multi-touch, 854 x 480 pixel FWVGA, a complete set of Playstation controls, and a 5MP rear facing camera which takes VGA video, a bummer but it is a gaming platform. There's also a forward facing camera for video chat and all the usual connection points. Still, users are primarily going to use the Play for gaming, where it really shines.
