XSEED launched a new trailer for the western release of Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection, coming to PC Summer 2017.

Originally released as Zwei II in Japan from developer Nihon Falcom, Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection contains a standalone story featuring a brash pilot named Ragna who is forced to partner up with the haughty vampire princess Alwen after she saves his life in exchange for a blood contract.

The publisher details the game’s features:

  • Two Playable Characters At Once (Plus a Pet) – Ragna roughs up foes in melee range, while Alwen fires off salvos of powerful magic orlocks down enemies from afar. Switch between the two on the fly to create crazy combos!
  • Unique Food-Based Experience System Gives Greater Control Over Leveling – Experience is gained through eating food, which can be cashed in immediately or saved totrade later for food worth even more EXP. Entire game can be played at level 1, if you dare.
  • Strange and Quirky Setting with Strange and Quirky Characters – Taking a page from the Legend of Heroes series, the residents of Ilvard are a lively lot, and a lot can be learned about each one as the story progresses. What’s the deal with that chain-smoking nun? Which of the three maids shirks the most work? And… is that a girl in a giant penguin costume?
  • Brand New, Expanded English Voices – Over 2000 voiced lines have been added to bring the twists and turns of the story to life.
