Koei Tecmo has revealed more details on characters and the demon-ridden world that will face you in Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon.
The JRPG will explore the strong relationship between childhood friends Aluche, Liliana and Ruenheid, who discover that they have become tangled in an intricate web of fate.
The publisher has shared more about the game’s premise, which you can read below:
“When the evil Moon Queen threatens humanity, the young priestess Liliana is chosen to become the Bride of Time – a sacrifice to save the world. This causes a disagreement between her two best friends, and during their altercation Aluche, the protagonist, is killed by a mysterious demon. Aluche is resurrected sometime later as a half-demon hybrid and, still struggling to come to terms with her new abilities, sets off to the ruined city of Eurulm, the girls’ hometown, to discover Ruenheid battling a swarm of fiends. Reunited, the pair decides to put aside their differences and fight for a joint cause: to save Liliana and defeat the Moon Queen.
“On their perilous quest, Aluche and Ruenheid are assisted by a unique bouquet of allies, including the mysterious New Curian doctor Camilla Alucard, Aluche’s role model and ex-Curian Knight Muveil Folin Lou, a half-demon assassin named Veruschka, and the powerful Nightlord, Arnice. Fighting alongside these “Lilies” sows the seeds of unlikely friendships that blossom into unbreakable bonds and awaken impressive latent abilities for all characters.
“Human companions are not the only ones to help in the war against the Moon Queen, as Aluche is also able to forge contracts with reliable fiends known as Servans. These include her long-time friend Nero, the electrifying mutt Scharf, the fairy-like companion Feuille, the Shikigami-wielding Kaede, the beautiful butterfly Farfalla, the shadowy fiend Hexer, and the dolphin-shaped Perle. These Servans are classed into two categories: Strikers, who are used specifically for their strong attacks and ability to transform into weapons, and Trickers, who can use their powers in the overworld to remove blockades and open up new paths.”
Koei Tecmo has also announced that those who pre-order Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon at participating retailers will receive a special pack of content that includes three Servans and a special costume for Aluche – screenshots below.
For the most devoted fans, a Limited Edition version is also available to pre-order on the NIS America Online Store and the NIS America Europe Online Store. This contains a hardcover art book, three cloth posters, an official soundtrack CD and a physical copy of the game, all housed in a collector’s box.
Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon will release for Nintendo Switch in North America on October 24th, and in Europe on October 27th.
