Ghostlight to release Agarest: Generations of War 2
Hi everyone. Welcome back to a very special return for the Ghostlight Friday Blog. We promised you a big PS3-flavoured announcement in last week’s blog and I’m delighted to be able to tell you that there is now one less PlayStation®3 kit on my desk. Er… wait that’s not the right announcement. Sorry about the slight technical difficulty there.
Ghostlight are delighted to reveal that we will be working with the wonderful people over at Idea Factory and Aksys to release the magnificent Agarest: Generations of War 2 in Europe. We’re going to be doing another one of our fabulous Collector’s Editions so get ready for some more news on the contents in 2012.
One day, the world was enveloped by a mysterious blinding light. The destruction it caused was terrible, even as the light itself was sublime in its beauty, and it made those who witnessed the awesome display think of the unrestrained rage and fury of the divine.
The central continent, from where the light is believed to have originated from, went silent, while at the same time demons began to spread throughout the world like a plague. Amongst the survivors of the catastrophe, that fateful day became known as the "Day of Light."
Sometime after the events of the Day of Light, a young man by the name of Weiss, who had lost all memory of himself, encounters an enigmatic woman named Eva, who introduces herself as an Agent of the Divine. It is from her that Weiss learns that he has committed the grievous sin of deicide, and that in order for him to atone for his crime he is to become the "Vessel" in which the power of the divinity he had slaughtered will be stored. For it will be that power that will be used to resurrect the one whose life he stole.
For those who betray the divine will pay for their sins in the space which separates salvation and damnation, as will their progeny...
Agarest 2 features:
- Revamped BattleSystem: Unlike the first two games of the series, Agarest 2 battles are fought with an engaging active grid-based battle system.
- HD graphics: Enjoy your favorite characters, environments and CGs in high-definition!

Agarest: Generations of War 2 is due out in 2012.
