KOEI TECMO EUROPE INTRODUCES NEW BATTLE PARTY AND LEVEL UP SYSTEM FOR NIGHTS OF AZURE 2: BRIDE OF THE NEW MOON
Explore Treacherous Dungeons, Fight Alongside Your Most Trusted Allies, and Utilise the Quirky Abilities of Friendly Fiends to Get Out of a Tough Spot!
Hertfordshire, 8th August 2017 – KOEI TECMO Europe introduced today new details on the level up system and battle party mechanics in GUST Studios’ latest title, Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon. Slated for release on the 27th October 2017, Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon will be available for the Nintendo Switch™, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC via Steam®.
In Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon, players will encounter a number of unique and dastardly fiends and will have to rely on their close bonds with their companions to emerge victorious. The battle party will always be comprised of Aluche, the player’s character, an NPC of her choice, and up to two Servans. Each team member will bring a unique selection of skills to the equation, ranging from different fighting styles and weapons to the beautiful Lily Burst, a power-up that combines the extraordinary abilities of Aluche and her humanoid companion into one devastating blow.
Aluche’s Servan allies are also useful assets to the team, with their incredible Servan Actions, which can help turn the tide of battle in her favour! The invaluable Tricker types are able to gain an advantage by unleashing their elemental abilities, dealing critical status effects to their foes. One such Tricker is the mighty canine companion, Scharf, who sends electrified spheres onto the battlefield to paralyse and inflict lasting damage on enemies! Trickers can change form as they evolve, and can grow more powerful through Reincarnation, which drastically increases their stats, allowing them to access new types of attacks and unlock incredible abilities.
As for the player-controlled Aluche, she soon discovers that the blood of slain fiends can be used to heighten her body’s strength, and players are able to choose new abilities fitting their preferred play-style from a wide selection of varied combat styles!
KOEI TECMO Europe has released a compelling new trailer which will introduce the wild cast of characters that Aluche will meet along her journey. There is also a first look at the new character Eleanor Ernest, the lively and passionate chocolatier, and a fresh look at a familiar face: Christophorus, the mysterious pure-blooded demon who returns from Nights of Azure. Both will bring their unique talents to bear in effort to aid Aluche in her fight against the Moon Queen.
