During the whole month of October, we have been getting a consistent amount of information regarding Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon, the sequel to a very enjoyable action RPG that I wanted to see more from. Thanks to many other games coming out to talk about, I never gave myself the time to fully cover all the new info, but now I’m ready to take on the enormous info dump on the new game. Let’s start with the story! Credit goes to Gematsu for providing the following translated information. They will be linked at the end of the article:
Can the inhuman save humanity?
The battle of the past between the Nightlord and the Saint left a major impact on the world. That is, a world that never sleeps, where “humans” are active during the hours the light shines, and demons known as fiends run rampant during the hours of darkness. Alushe, a knight of the Curia, is entrusted as a guard to escort the Saint Liliana, her former childhood friend.
After fighting the fiends that attacked them, the two finally arrive at the Curia, but there learn that Liliana is the chosen “Bride of Time” to be offered as a sacrifice to the “Queen of the Moon.” In her surprise, sorrow, and suffering, Alushe takes Liliana and heads for the Queen of the Moon’s castle. However, they’re suddenly attacked by a powerful demon, and Alushe, despite her best efforts, is killed.
When she awakens, Alushe has been resurrected by the Curia as an artificial half-demon. According to the Curia’s researchers, Liliana had already disappeared when they found her, and is said to likely be in the abandoned city. In order to recover the stolen Liliana, the resurrected Alushe heads for the abandoned city, taking along the demon power she does not desire within her.
Protagonist: Alushe Anatoria (Voice: Sayaka Senbongi)
Liliana Selphin (Voice: Ai Kayano)
Lily: Ruhenheid Ariarod (Mikako Komatsu)
New Lily: Camilla Alucard (Voice: NA)
New Lily: Muveil Follin Roux (Voice: NA)
If you don’t know what a Lily is, it’s basically another way of saying “partner.” These people will join you in battle along with the Pokemon-esque Servans that also help you. However, I’m going to leave all of that for another article, since this is way too long as it is. Stay tuned for some more coverage, in which I’ll show you some stuff about Servans and how the combat actually works in Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon!
