Ludeme Games' streamlined chess experience, Chess 2: The Sequel, will be available for Ouya Jan. 21, Eurogamer reports.

Chess 2 offers a spin on the classic board game by giving players the choice of six different armies, rather than one set of pieces. According to the game's website, Chess 2 relies "much less on memorized openings and more on positional play." It's free-to-play offline, while those hoping to engage in online matches must use crowns, or in-game currency (which can be purchased with real-world money).

Chess 2: The Sequel was announced as an Ouya title in July 2013. The game was expected to launch at the end of last year.
