XSEED launched a new trailer for the Falcom developed action RPG Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection, coming to PC-via Steam on October 31.

After receiving a delay in September, Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection’s newest trailer focuses on the vampire princess Alwen du Moonbria. After saving the main protagonist, Ragna Valentine, from a plane’s wreckage, Alwen forms a blood contract with him, which saves his life, but also makes him her servant.

Ragna must assist Alwen in her quest to recover her stolen magic and reclaim her seized castle. However, being the adventurous type that he is, Ragna offers to join Alwen as her partner for this quest.

Both characters are playable throughout the game, Alwen focuses on using more magic based attacks that can hurt enemies from afar. While Ragna gets up close and personal to go in for the melee attacks. The player must switch between characters in battle, a system found in the Ys series, in order to attack at enemy’s weak points.

Additionally, Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection features a level-up system based around food where players will gain experience by eating food instead of simply grinding in battles. Combining food and saving it will provide huge bonuses to the rewarded experience.
