The latest game by JAST, Seinarukana The Spirit of Eternity Sword 2, is now out. This title is is the sequel to Xuse’s Aselia the Eternal.
If you’re a fan of Japanese media, then the idea of a JRPG and visual novel rolled into one might be the best thing since sliced bread. If you’ve been tuning in since at least July of 2015, you may recall our coverage of Aselia the Eternal, where we also noted that a sequel to the Seinarukana series was on the way.
Originally slated for a November 2015 release, Seinarukana The Spirit of Eternity Sword 2 has only just recently made it to our screens. The game is out as of today and comes in both a digital and hard copy release.
Much like its predecessor, Seinarukana SoES2 combines the genres of the classic JRPG and visual novel. Seinarukana SoES2 also shares the same setting as Aselia the Eternal, though the game remains a standalone experience. The story itself will take players on a journey through the universe, spanning the many realities that work their way through time and space.
In one of these worlds, a branch in the infinite cosmos, a boy holds something deep within him that’s trying to break free – the soul of an ancient god. This manifests itself in his daily life, leading to dangerous urges and a looming threat of violence. He is not alone however, as others also carry this burden with them. On the brink of an age old war and with a desperate need to understand what lies within him, the boy begins his journey.
According to the team at Xuse, Seinarukana The Spirit of Eternity Sword 2 will treat players to over 50 hours of classic JRPG gameplay. The game will feature a total of six unique endings, as well as three separate difficulty levels to keep you on your toes. The game also boasts a large roster of characters, with almost twenty choices for whom to play as, each with their own unique set of skills and abilities.
Most importantly of all, Seinarukana The Spirit of Eternity Sword 2 has quite a lot of CGs. The game comes with over 120 of them, so there’s plenty of material to keep you going during your playthrough. A lot of this will be presented through visual novel style interactions, with the typical functionality you would expect from the genre.
If you want to check out Seinarukana The Spirit of Eternity Sword 2 for yourself, you can find more information either through JAST USA’s website or the official English site for the game. The latter of the two provides a little more information on the characters of the game, as well as a quick look at the boxed copy of the game.
Seinarukana The Spirit of Eternity Sword 2 will retail for $44.99 and is available through JAST USA’s website, linked just above. Players who want a physical copy of the game will have to go through J-List, which you’ll find for the slightly cheaper price of $44.95. The physical copy comes with a few extras you won’t see on digital either, such as a 24-page manual, a wall poster, and a Steam code to redeem the game on Valve’s service.
Be aware, though, that the Steam version has not been made available just yet, and is due to hit the store in the Fall of 2016. As is to be expected, all the adult content will be removed, but this version will include extras that aren’t on the original Japanese release.
