Developed by Nihon Falcom, Zwei! is an action RPG which was first released in 2001. Now XSEED is bringing the localization of the second installment called Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection to the west.
The second game was originally released in 2008 and it features a self-contained story with new characters, which is great since the original never made it outside of Japan.
This is a 3D dungeon crawler, where you play as two characters which you can swap between at the press of a button: Ragna a drill wielding fighter and Alwen a spell casting vampire princess. The game borrows heavily from Falcom’s other titles namely Ys, but has its own unique elements. Leveling up is done exclusively through food. Instead of getting experience, character pick up food which they can use to restore health or level up. You can even mix up to 10 food items to increase their potency.
This version should come to Steam and GOG sometime this summer. It will feature English voices with an additional 2000 lines added, however there is still no confirmation of a dual audio option.
