Back in February, when we wrote about our most anticipated titles of the year
, we were hoping Izuna and her crew
would return, and lo, Atlus has announced the sequel's localization. Rejoice and prepare to get your ass thoroughly kicked this summer, when Izuna 2: The Unemployed Ninja Returns
shows up for a second round of punishing-yet-hilarious roguelike action.
While the first game was a solid offering
, the second purportedly packs more action, more content, and more challenges -- but also offers up the buddy system
to help you through the pain. Don't expect that to ratchet down the difficulty, however; import impressions indicate that Izuna's return is a much bigger experience, and very much worth the wait.
Izuna 2: The Unemployed Ninja Returns
slides into an already-tight summer schedule July 22.
