Burai II: Yami Kōtei no Gyakushū

(prices updated 9/29 10:44 PM )


The beautiful planet Kypros, with its lovely view and rich population: humans, gods, intelligent animals... long ago, the god of light Risk and the god of darkness Daar engaged in a prolonged battle which ended with Risk's victory. Bido, the emperor of darkness, tried to revive Daar, but was stopped by the eight legendary heroes, the bearers of eight magical pearls, who united to participate in this cosmic struggle. Peace has returned to Kypros, but not for long. Bido was not completely defeated and is now planning an evil scheme that goes beyond resurrecting Daar. Peace is once again threatened, and the eight heroes have to find each other again and to fight for justice once more!

In this direct sequel to Burai, you control once again the eight heroes - all coming from a different race, culture, and place. Among them is a fearless fighter of the reptile nation, a human sorceress, brother and sister from a tribe of intelligent dog-like creatures, a silver dragon god, and others. You play the personal stories of the heroes as well as their unified struggle. You move the characters on the top-down world map, visiting towns and dungeons, and fighting randomly appearing enemies in turn-based combat viewed from first person perspective.
