Gust has just released some new information and screenshots regarding their newest action RPG sequel, Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon! Details of the story and the game's battle system is introduced in these new screen caps!

The story behind Nights of Azure 2 is pretty interesting. Mankind roams the world during the hours of day, while the demons and fiends run rampant at night. Alushe, the main character that you'll control in the game, is sent on an escort mission to bring Saint Liliana, her former childhood friend, to Curia. After some fights against fiends that attacked them, they arrive at Curia. Their happiness is shortlived though, as they find out that Liliana is the chosen "Bride of Time", a sacrifice that's made to the "Queen of the Moon".


Alushe takes Liliana and heads for the Queen of the Moon's castle. However, they are attacked by a powerful demon, and Alushe is killed. Alushe awakens, apparently resurrected by the Curia as an artificial half-demon. She then goes on a mission to recover Liliana, utilizing the demonic powers within her.

Some of the different battle mechanics in the game features the ability for Alushe to bring two Servans and Lilys into battle. Combining a variety of different Lily and Servan abilities will allow players to tackle different situations. Ruhenheid is a Lily that will protect Alushe by staying close to her and protecting her blind spots. They have their own unique, special skills. Ruhenheid's special skill seems to be a shield-like projection that will protect Alushe from damage when she's in trouble, which could help when fighting powerful fiends with strong attacks.

Servans are familiars that form a contract with Alushe, meaning that they'll fight for her when she summons them. There are two different types of Servans that use special actions: Tricksters, who open new paths for Alushe, or Strikers, who becomes Alushe's new weapons. Trickster types allow Alushe to access different paths, or can be used to fight in battle. Striker types replaces Alushe's weapon, providing her with a different style of fighting to gain the upperhand.

Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon will be released on December 22, followed by a western release on an unannounced date. The game looks awesome. If you're a fan of Action RPGs, take a look at the video below!
