Koei Tecmo has revealed a wealth of new Night of Azure 2 details, outlining Aluche’s companions, summon creatures, the European Limited Edition, and pre-order bonuses. As well as all that, there’s a new trailer too! Get a glimpse of the action in the new trailer 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 some time 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.
Pre-order Bonuses and Limited Edition
Players who pre-order Nights of Azure 2 on both Switch and PS4 from particular retailers will receive bonus DLC in the form of a costume for Aluche and 3 extra Servans. Those who buy the game digitally via PSN within the first four weeks of its release will receive a custom too.
Lastly, people who pre-order both Nights of Azure 2 and Blue Reflection in their early purchase periods either digitally or via retailers will receive bonus DLC costumes where the protagonists switch outfits. They’re quite a change of style!
Along with the pre-order bonus DLC, the hefty European Limited Edition includes a copy of the game, three cloth posters, a hardcover art book, and a soundtrack CD, all in a Collector’s Box, as in the North American version. It looks pretty stunning! The Limited Edition will be available to pre-order starting July 20th from the NISA Europe Online Store.
Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon releases on August 31st in Japan for PS4, PS Vita, and Switch, and on October 24th in North America and October 27th in Europe for PS4, Switch, and PC.
