While this is a sequel, it features a new cast and story. After she died in an ambush, the New Curia resurrected former knight protector Alushe as a half-demon. However, even after death she remains loyal to her childhood friend, the priestess Liliana. To keep Liliana safe, Alushe will slay countless fiends and even confront the Queen of the Moon.
As with the previous game, Nights of Azure 2 is an action RPG with hack and slash combat. Like Arnice before her, Alushe will also be able to summon Servans to aid in battle. New in this entry is a partner system. Alushe is not the only one who wants to protect Liliana, and she can bring one of these allies with her into battle.
Additionally, a limited edition for the game is now available for pre-order from NIS America. This package includes:
- The game itself
- A hardcover artbook
- A partial soundtrack on one CD
- Three cloth posters of varying sizes
- A box
Nights of Azure 2 was developed by Gust. The game will be available on the Switch, PS4, and PC.
