Koei Tecmo and Gust released a batch of new screenshots of the upcoming JRPG Nights of Azure 2.
We get to see Malvasia, the supreme demon who replaced the Nightlord after Night of Azure. She used to be peaceful in the past, but now it appears that she wants to conquer the world. The only way to seal her is to sacrifice Liliana, the Bride of Time.
We also see the three popes who control the Holy See, and who decided Liliana’s sarcrifice to placate Malvasia.
More screenshots showcase the relationships between Arshe and her lilies, who can go from powerful enemies to reliable companions. As the relationship between them deepens, the number of lilies under their portrait will increase, and the picture will become more intimate.
A deepening relationship will also showcase story events involving the girls, showing more of their personality, backstories and interactions.
By performing cooperative actions in battle, the tension gauge will increase, and Arshe and her lily will be able to deliver a devastating “Lily Burst” attack.
Last, but not least, we get to know the ability of Arshe’s familiars, like the wolf Sharuf and the butterfly demon Farfala.
Nights of Azure 2 will release on August 31st in Japan, for PS4, PS Vita and Nintendo Switch.
