Today, during a livestream on Nico Nico hosted by the Japanese magazine Dengeki PlayStation, Koei Tecmo introduced a nice chunk of gameplay of the upcoming JRPG Nights of Azure 2.
The game was played live by Producer Keisuke Kikuchi, that showcased a sizable portion of gameplay close to the beginning of the game on PS4.
Incidentally, this portion of the game gives a first look on the Lily interaction between the protagonist Arshe and Camilla, on top of the fire-based powers of the feline familiar Nero.
In addition to the video, we also got to see a really sexy piece of artwork, that you can enjoy at the bottom of the post, featuring Arshe, Liliana and Ruenhaid.
You can check out the video below, but do keep in mind that it’s a recording from Nico Nico, so the quality isn’t very good due to the livestreaming service’s notoriously bad resolution and compression ratios.
Nights of Azure 2 was recently delayed in Japan to February 2017, like basically every Koei Tecmo game ever. The publisher 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, and both versions can now be found below, alongside the full recording of the show at the bottom of the post.
