"Lost Kingdoms II takes the franchise's immersive real-time action/RPG experience to the next level by delivering improved graphics, expanded quests, unlimited battle areas and new abilities that allow players to transform into different creatures," said Larry Goldberg, executive vice president, Activision Worldwide Studios. "The game also features an enhanced card-based battle system, where gamers can collect and power up a variety of new Creature Cards that can be summoned to fight in real-time battles against hordes of evil monsters."
Developed by FromSoftware, Inc., Lost Kingdoms II places players once again in the perilous realm of Argwyll, this time as a new heroine named Tara - an abandoned child raised by a gang of thieves who possesses a magical Runestone. As Tara, players must use the Runestone to summon both supernatural and mechanical Guardian Creatures as they travel through more than 26 vivid worlds filled with forests, mountains and fortresses. Drawing upon their deck of more than 200 Guardian Creature Cards - including 100 all-new cards, players can battle more than 200 enemies ranging from fighting skeletons and fire-breathing dragons to new mechanized beasts. Additionally, a new Card Transformational Ability enables gamers to turn into a variety of creatures giving them the opportunity to launch devastating power attacks, overcome obstacles, solve puzzles and venture to hidden areas throughout the game.
In addition to the single player story mode, Lost Kingdoms II also includes an expanded multi-player option where gamers can pit themselves against one another to battle in two-player Versus Mode.
