The elephant-riding SRPG 'Tears to Tiara II: Heir of the Overlord' includes an amazing 31-page artbook!


PlayStation®3 [Strategy RPG / Visual Novel]

Release: October 14, 2014

Tears to Tiara II: Heir of the Overlord is an intense strategy RPG, but with a unique story that unfolds much more like a visual novel. As a distant sequel to Tears to Tiara it is not neccesary to have played the previous title in order to fully appreciate the game. In fact if you are a fan of strategy RPG's and Japanese storytelling in general then we probably have a match! The US release will receive subtitle localization in English, but the voices will remain as the original Japanese.

Embark on the tale of Hamilcar Barca, the last heir to Hispania's royal throne, as he fights to reclaim his land from the Divine Empire! Hamilcar will fight alongside an entire cast of deep characters, the cutest elephants you've ever seen, and even the gods themselves as he learns to control the demon within.

The unique combat is at times a tool for the story, and as such may take a backseat - but is in no way boring! Over 15 main characters, plus side characters and even beasts, can be recruited into your party to allowing you the freedom to build YOUR own strategy. One of the many mechanics is a very fun combat mechanic called Chain Stock gauge which can be charged up (by dealing/taking damage) to then unleash a 'Chain Attack'. During the Chain Attack players must hold down the attack button and release it when the circle on the screen disappears, much like in a rhythm-action game. Higher accuracy = bigger combos!

As a bonus for the US release, first print runs of Tears to Tiara II: Heir of the Overlord will include a copy of 'Tears to Tiara II Visual Works', a 31 page art book with drawings from Naru Furudera.
