The nice people over at JAST USA gave me an opportunity to test it out and I jumped on it. I had no concept what I used to be getting myself into right here. The journey was lengthy, however let’s discover out if it was a superb one.
The story of Seinarukana follows a younger man named Setoki Nozomu. He has been having some unusual goals as of late. These goals are violent and he all the time feels stronger when he slays extra individuals in them. He’s confronted with a really robust opponent that he defeats, however is then slain simply by a lady with a spear. He awakens in school groping his childhood good friend Nagamine Nozomi.

He usually will get him into extra hassle than not, however he’s all the time by his aspect.
After Nozomu and Nozomi make up, the scholar council president, Ikaruga Satsuki, makes her entrance. She has emotions for Nozomu as properly. This places her and Nozomi at odds with one another very often. This results in some very comical scenes since these two are giving their all and Nozomu is totally oblivious to how they really feel about him. Akatsuki often joins the trio as they stroll house they usually lead principally regular lives, anticipate Nozomu’s goals which might be beginning to take a toll on him, and there are rumors of this unusual black canine attacking individuals.

He tries to go to high school however that fails badly. He crawls to the shrine the place he meets the shrine maiden there, Tamaki. She will additionally see his the little fairy with him, however he has no concept who she is. This shrine seems to be related to this otherwordly beast and Satsuki lives right here as properly. The subsequent day at college Nozumu is giving into his emotions of rage that began the night time he used the sword. Out of the blue the skies darken and the varsity is all of a sudden attacked by unusual human-like beings from the skies. It’s on this second that your greatest pal, Akatsuki, makes an attempt to kill you. Satsuki tries to defend you, however she fails. Nozomi nevertheless blocks his blade with a spear of her personal. The varsity and everybody in it’s then teleported to a wierd new land.

The sword he wields is known as an Eternity Sword. They maintain the facility of the gods. The little fairy is his acquainted, so he names her Remme. He should now collect his power with a purpose to assist get everybody residence. This journey will take him and his companions to locations they by no means might’ve imagined!
In every of Seinarukana’s worlds you’ll not solely see the characters develop nearer as they overcome the trials they face, however you’ll encounter new allies alongside the best way. A few of these allies embrace a really regal knight named Katima Aigias. She is what you’d anticipate a knight to be. Very courageous and all about honor. She might be fairly cussed in some issues as nicely. Then there’s a woman named Ruputna who fights to save lots of the elementals on her world from the people. She is considerably childlike, however is a really expert fighter. Additionally, you will encounter my private favourite, Naya Tactca Nanafe. This lovable cat woman could be very sensible and she or he runs a world of magic. Don’t let her small stature idiot you. She is sort of expert with technical issues, however she can also be a bit clumsy, which solely provides to her cuteness. These are just a few of the allies you’ll encounter throughout this lengthy however satisfying journey.
If Seinarukana having a tremendous story wasn’t sufficient, Seinarukana -The Spirit of Eternity Sword 2 has a really deep fight system. It’s fairly difficult and is a bit overwhelming at first, however when you get the grasp of it you may be slaying hordes of enemies very quickly. I’ll give a really temporary rationalization of the fundamentals right here. The sport has many tutorials that may be accessed anytime should you get confused about how one thing works.
Fight in Seinarukana takes place on a prime down fashion map. You’ll transfer your fighters in models of three. There’s most of six models. Every unit will include an attacker, defender and a help character. The attacker in every unit is the first supply of injury, Defenders will take in injury thrown at them by the attackers by way of quite a lot of expertise. Relying on the assault some expertise will work higher than others relying on if it’s a pressure or materials assault. Defenders have some expertise that may shield all the social gathering from hurt. When your defender falls in battle you’ll take important injury from all assaults. The help character will use oblique assaults on the enemy, use enchantments to counter enemy spells and perhaps even offer you some therapeutic. Every character may have a set of expertise for every of the fight roles and you will have to handle these correctly. They will solely use one position at at time, however they are often switched round in between battles.
Now chances are you’ll be asking, how do I do know which characters are greatest for every position? Nicely, there’s a simple reply for that, by their shade. Every character could have a shade and this represents which aspect they’re. Every certainly one of these colours have totally different traits. For instance white means safety, so this character would likey make an amazing defender, blue characters assault expertise are extra highly effective, so models with low protection shall be worn out simply by them. There are extra colours within the recreation and the image under is from the in-game tutorial to offer you a greater concept of how this all works.
After the models are all arrange it’s time to maneuver alongside the map. You’ll notice the paths clearly marked with plenty of nodes alongside every. You’ll be able to transfer one node every flip, and when you encounter an enemy and don’t defeat them within the allotted turns, you may be despatched again to the node you began on. Additionally, you will discover bases alongside these paths. It is extremely necessary that you simply conquer these and discover every one on each map. Not solely are they a supply of mana, which helps energy your Eternity sword, however additionally, you will discover gadgets that may give new expertise to the characters. You may also summon artifacts on these bases that grant you much more fight or defensive buffs.
Should you come into Seinarukana considering it is going to be straightforward, you’re in for a impolite awakening. Whereas it doesn’t take lengthy to select up the fundamentals of the way it works, a few of these levels are brutal, even on the traditional problem. There are boss fights that took me fairly some time to discover a setup that may work nicely sufficient to beat them, and I’m not totally positive you would win these some other approach to be trustworthy. I didn’t try the sport on the arduous problem that unlocks if you clear the sport, however I might think about it might be rattling close to inconceivable to clear a few of these levels. The saving grace right here is it can save you anytime through the battle. This can provide help to right errors in the event you get caught or if you need to head out to do different issues. A few of the levels right here will simply take over an hour to finish.
In the long run, though Seinarukana -The Spirit of Eternity Sword 2 is among the most troublesome video games I’d performed in a very long time, it’s additionally probably the greatest. As a visible novel it excels in each space. The paintings is superb, it has among the best soundtracks I’ve heard in a very long time, the writing is nice and I felt the H-scenes have been nicely positioned. Every of the six routes solely has a pair however they’re tastefully carried out and match the story nicely. You possibly can all the time go together with the Steam model should you don’t need the H scenes, because it has the extra content material added to make up for this. The fight brings the expertise right here down a bit because of its extreme problem, however that is nothing you can’t overcome purchase utilizing the in-game tutorials and some guides across the internet. I performed Seinarukana for 65 hours and completed two of the six routes, and because the widespread route is about 80% of the sport, I might’ve achieved the others with slightly extra time invested. I’ve to say for the $39.99 asking worth over on JAST USA’s website I really feel this can be a good discount. In the event you’re into visible novels and don’t thoughts a little bit of hardcore RPG fight this one is very beneficial.
