    Given how much I'm enjoying the first game, I can't wait for the sequel!

    Released in Japan on 24th March 2011

    More information on the sequel. Seems nearly everything is doubled (bar the graphics and story)...

    Double the weapon types

    The original had sword, club and staff weapons. CD2 adds arrow, dagger and spear weapons. The arrows are for distance, and you can also launch special elemental arrows by holding down the attack button. The dagger has short reach but is quick and can do positional damage to monsters. The sphere has greater range than the sword, and you can push the attack button a second time to get a second attack.

    More than double the Magic Circle types

    Magic Circle is a unique formation system for setting up support characters who come to your assistance in dungeons. There were 103 types of these in the original. CD2 has over 200.

    Double the jobs

    The original had five jobs. CD2 ups this to 10. Dengeki has a look at two of the new jobs, Saint and Ranger. Saints can learn recovery magics and can take out monsters who can't die. Rangers can learn skills with arrows and daggers and are capable of quick movement. The character designs are once again from character designer Mota.

    More than double the edit elements

    The game's character making feature has advanced through the inclusion of a new "Advance Mode." In this mode, in addition to setting your character's name and physical appearance, you can also set animation, and make equipment and background music. When creating equipment, you can change physical appearance, set a name, and create a custom explanation. For the characters, you can create a relationship chart indicating who's related to who and who loves who. You'll be able to load up your characters from the original.

    Greater story and dungeon volume

    You'll find a greater number of dungeons, along with new gimmicks and new monsters.

    Sounds good to me. EU release = sale.

    One of those occasions where just putting more of everything in is all you really need to do :-)

    It's looking good!

    Keep it up Haway, it's not as futile as you might think, honest!

    No-one read my review ;_;

    (Well to be honest, it was far too long for it's own good :p)

    Unfortunately they released the first game around the same time as Unlosing Ranger, and I got that game instead. I'll definitely keep an eye on the sequel though. Any news about a comprehensible version yet?

    ...because I'm stuck, anyone want to help me out? :p

    Some pictures taken from the in-game screenshot function \o/

    New features:

    Music Editor - all in Japanese so couldn't mess around with it much but could be quite cool :)

    SP drops - One of the main problems with Cladun - no SP regeneration unless you get an Angel Gate. Blue blobs now give you SP, which makes for easier dungeon diving!

    Magic Circle configuration saving - Save your Magic Circle artefact positions for easy reloading! \o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/

    New options - OK, didn't play with them much but spotted one that changes the text format to something less retro - makes it easier to read :)

    Toilets! - No use obviously in the game :p

    New weapons and preset character models - I didn't make the character in those screenshots - he was a pre made one :). New weapon types and monsters too. Frogs, mushrooms and zombie archers!

    All in all, good fun :)

    Falcom cameos in this game:

    Adol Christin from the Ys series
    Dogi from the Ys series
    Lilia from Ys II
    Lloyd Bannings from Zero no Kiseki
    Tio Plato from Zero no Kiseki
    Estelle Bright from Trails in the Sky
    Joshua Bright from Trails in the Sky

    I hope this comes to the west. If not, I will definitely pick up the first game at some point.
    HiddenAway wrote a very enticing review of the first.

    I'm surprised anyone actually managed to slog through it (the review I mean, not Cladun) :p

    It's a great review Hidden.

    You'd have a smaller backlog for a start :)

    Sometimes I wonder if we're the only two who care about this, Haway.
  • Deleted user 12 August 2011 10:15:57
    I care.
    I've only held off buying the first game because I was waiting for the sequel.
