Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon's main characters artwork

Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon is Koei-Tecmo's upcoming action-RPG set in a demon-infested Western Europe somewhere in the 19th century. The story's focus will be on our three main characters, life-long friends that have suddenly found themselves on the opposite sides of a conflict that threatens to tear the entire world apart. And if that wasn't bad enough, our protagonist will quickly find herself succumbing to the demonic curse, which as you might imagine puts an even larger strain on the trio's relationship.

If this sort of storyline sounds like something you might be interested in, allow me to share with you all of the recently posted details. Its not much, but it should give you an idea of just what kind of RPG Nights of Azure 2 is trying to be. Have a look:

"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."

You can expect to see Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon arrive on October 24th for the PC, PS4, and Nintendo Switch. The English website is unfortunately still completely useless, so if you would like to learn a few more tidbits, or just check out some of the screenshots, I'd recommend heading over to the Japanese website instead. And finally, here's the recently posted and rather brief action trailer. Enjoy!
