Kingdoms Of Amalur Thqnordic

Publisher THQNordic has announced that it's acquired the rights to Kingdoms of Amalur, sparking hope in the hearts of those who have been eager for another game in the series -- ourselves included.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning was an action role-playing game that launched on the PlayStation 3. While it wasn't a gigantic hit or anything, it was well received, and it quickly gained a hardcore following. It had a superb battle system that was full-on action, and its varied fantasy world was a joy to explore.

Many years ago there were rumours that a sequel was in the works, but it never saw the light of day because the developer's parent company, 38 Studios, was shut down for financial reasons. 38 Studios has owned the property ever since, but now it's been bought up by THQNordic.

Naturally there's already a lot of talk about a return to Amalur, but are you up for it? Crush some gnomes in the comments section below.
