Today, during a livestream on Nico Nico hosted by the Japanese magazine Dengeki PlayStation, Koei Tecmo revealed a brand new trailer of the upcoming JRPG Nights of Azure 2.
The trailer, that was introduced by Producer Keisuke Kikuchi, was definitely of the sexy sort, showcasing the relationship between the protagonist, Arshe, and her “lilies,” Liliana, Ruenhaid, Camilla and Myubell. We also get to see how they interact in battle, combining their powers.
In addition to that, the video includes a nice surprise for the fans of the first Nights of Azure: the reveal the return of former protagonist Arnice, that apparently has become quite powerful. When we interviewed him, Kikuchi-san opted to be coy about the possibility of Arnice appearing in the game, and the nature of her relationship with Arshe. At least now we know that she will be back.
Nights of Azure 2 was recently delayed in Japan to February 2017, and below you can check the video out (keeping in mind that it’s recorded from Nico Nico, so the quality isn’t top notch. Koei Tecmo still did not upload the direct feed version). You can also check out a nice chunk of gameplay that was livestreamed today.
Koei Tecmo announced that the game will be released in the west next year, but did not provide a precise launch window just yet.
Update: a second recording from the YouTube version of the livestream has been added. Resolution and compression are better, but there is a rather annoying interlacing effect, so it’s a bit of a trade-off. Both versions can now be found below, alongside the full recording of the show at the bottom of the post.
