Today Koei Tecmo released a lovely batch of new screenshots and artwork of Nights of Azure 2, that will be released in February 2017 in Japan and some time next year in the west.
The screenshots showcase Arnice, the protagonist of the first Night of Azure. She is a half-demon girl who has been monitoring the demons with the nickname “You of the Night” for a long time. She appears in front of Arshe wielding great power.
We also meet a new girl, Christophoros, known among demons as a veteran called ” pure blood demon,” she appears in front of Arshe every time she sparks her interest. It appears that she is looking for something, but her goals are completely unknown.
The screenshots also showcase the special skills of some of the girls as a Lily. Liliana is able to revive Arshe once per battle. Arshe can also move at great speeds in the field while carrying Liliana. Lilies also can use a co-operative skill named Lily Burst. Camilla can deliver a powerful attack with her rifle, while Liliana can summon a pillar of light that wipes a large area of evil spirits.
We also get a glimpse on Arshe’s growth system. She levels up by using the blood she earns from defeated demons. Using the Ability Points earned in battle, she can unlock various abilities in the ability tree.
Last, but not least, we get to see Maple, a puppet familiar that can block the movements on the enemies, providing support in battle.
You can check out the gallery below, and see Arnice and Christophoros in action in the new trailer, alongside a nice chunk of gameplay from the beginning of the game.
