The August issue of Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Sirius magazine is revealing on Monday that KOEI Tecmo Games and Gust's Nights of Azure 2 (Yoru no Nai Kuni 2 ~Shingetsu no Hanayome~) game will get a spinoff manga titled Yoru no Nai Kuni 2 ~Hibi Hana Sakari~ at "Suiyōbi no Sirius," Monthly Shonen Sirius' online manga label collaboration with the Nico Nico Seiga image sharing website. Tae Tono is drawing the manga, which will launch on July 5, with new chapters every Wednesday.
The game launches in Japan on August 31 for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Nintendo Switch.
Koei Tecmo Games plans to release the game in North America and Europe. The company describes the sequel:
Following the success of Nights of Azure, which marked a darker direction for GUST, producer Keisuke Kikuchi returns to the demon-plagued world where players will follow the story of a young girl knight born from the blood of Arnice, the main character of Nights of Azure. Nights of Azure 2 (working title) maintains the same JRPG gameplay elements adored by dedicated fans of the studio and expands this new franchise's horizons with a riveting new storyline!
The game stars Sayaka Senbongi as Alesh Anatoria, Ai Kayano as Liliana Selfin, and Mikako Komatsu as Ruenhide Ariarod. Hiroshi Kataoka (Sengoku Musou Chronicle) is directing the game, Keisuke Kikuchi is producing the game, Makoto Shibata (Fatal Frame series) is returning to handle the story, and Jun'ichi Fujisaku (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Blood-C scriptwriter) is supervising the story. Yoshiku is returning to design the characters.
