Shadow Fight 2 is a huge success. That’s the word from Nekki, the game’s developer. The company just announced that the title has now been downloaded more than 35 million times, across the iOS and Android platforms where it is available.

Shadow Fight 2 is the sequel to a Facebook game that released on that social platform. That previous title was downloaded more than 46 million times, meaning the sequel is catching up quickly.

In Shadow Fight 2, players will find “classic martial arts combat with RPG elements.” There also is the promise of “proprietary cascadeur animation technology,” which must have other mobile game developers feeling somewhat jealous. Players assume the role of a ninja, one who apparently feels a compulsion to collect “an arsenal of weapons and rare armor.” There’s a storyline, too, and lots of action, which no doubt explains why so many people have decided to download the title.

“We are thrilled to see such an enthusiastic reception for Shadow Fight 2, allowing us to reach 35 million downloads in under four months,” said the company’s co-founder and CEO, Dmitry Terehkin. “Our goal is to always create games that we want to play, and we know we’ve gotten it right when our community of loyal and vocal fans uses the power of word-of-mouth to propel our games to the top of the charts.”
