RPG Phantasy Star II
, Sword of Vermilion
is a role-playing game with action combat in a medieval-fantasy setting.
A third-person, top-down perspective is used to move around towns. A first-person view is used for overland travel outside of towns. A third-person side view perspective (a la Double Dragon
or Final Fight
) is used for the combat sequences.
The player is cast in the role of an ordinary young man who discovers that he is really a prince, and the son of the deceased good King Erik. He is charged with traveling around the land of Excalabria to collect the eight magic Rings of Good, defeating a number of boss enemies on the way to confronting the evil King Tsarkon.
