Koei Tecmo’s lavishly alluring title about down-low lesbians has officially launched for the Nintendo Switch, PC and PS4. Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon can be purchased physically or digitally for the respective platforms.
Gust Studio’s game centers a realm infested by demons to the point where the world needs a savior. The game focuses on the protagonist Aluche, a fierce and uncompromising knight, and the deuteragonist, Liliana, who is Aluche’s longtime childhood friend. Aluche must escort Liliana to carry out her duty and destiny to save the world, but Aluche is killed in the process. The game only just gets started once Aluche meets her fate. The warrior-knight comes back to life as a half-demon with special powers.
The duo continue their journey onward, meeting a variety of other characters and villains along the way on their roadtrip of destruction to meet face-to-face with the Queen of the Moon. If you need to see the game in action you can check out the launch trailer below.
The hook for the game is that companions for Aluche, known as Servans, can be utilized during combat as Strikers or Trickers. This allows players to send friendly demons into battle either as battle strikers or transforming them into weapons for Aluche to use, not unlike Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni.
Nintendo Switch owners will also receive bonus DLC if they purchase the game within four weeks of its release, gaining access to three new Servans and a bonus costume for Aluche called the “Scarlet Stripes”.
The game may be riddled with fan-service and bouncing boobs, with plenty of yuri-themes throughout, but it’s not an eroge, or ecchi-style VN, or exploitative. If you’re into the more romanticized yuri stories, Nights of Azure 2 takes the low and slow route for the character building, focusing more on the emotional bonds that build between the characters and the love that develops, rather than the kind of yuri content you get from the Winged Cloud games.
Anyway, you can pick up a copy of Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon right now for Nintendo Switch, PC or on PlayStation 4. For more info you can also visit the official website.
