"The excitement of Crimson Sea 2 modulates between heart-pounding action and eerie suspense. The visual effects are amazingly vibrant. The sound effects and music build tension. The game worlds are strange yet beautiful. You never know where or when the enemy will appear. The realism of the environments and the intensity of the situations in Crimson Sea 2 go well beyond the original in its ability to enthrall players," said Amos Ip, Vice-President of Sales & Marketing for KOEI Corporation. "By bringing CRIMSON SEA 2 to the PlayStation 2 we are making the experience available to a wider audience."
About CRIMSON SEA 2
Millions of light years away in the star system Theophilus, an unknown evil threatened mankind, an evil defeated by Sho- a rare human alien hybrid known as a "Vipa," and the game's main character. However, that was only the beginning. Taking place two years after the events of the original Crimson Sea, CRIMSON SEA 2 sees the IAG - the agency charged with the protection of the galaxy -in a state of near-collapse. Still reeling from a massive surprise attack, IAG Commander, Live-D organizes the remaining forces along with a rag-tag team of mercenaries and survivors. Sho's old friends from G-Squad are dispersed to different areas of the galaxy, but in light of the devastation, Sho searches for more help.
More help comes in the form of a new playable character and three new modes of play! The original Crimson Sea was known for its girls with guns, and a voluptuous commander who called all the shots. CRIMSON SEA 2 introduces a new femme fatale in Feanay, a "Vipa" with her own unique Neo-Psionic powers.
During the game, fulfilling certain conditions lets players switch between Sho and Feanay, unlocking new character-specific missions.
In addition to the main single player game, CRIMSON SEA 2 now includes 3 two-player modes. Players can work together to bring down an enemy and clear
a stage in "Co-op" mode, battle head-to-head "death match" style in "Versus" mode, or try to outscore their human opponent in "Competition" mode.
With non-linear game progression and over 60 different missions, players can choose from among several missions created for each stage. Players may be asked to penetrate an enemy stronghold and gather intelligence, or rescue a stranded dignitary. Even after declining a mission, the player can still develop a character's attributes and weapons while exploring a stage. This allows the player to later accept a mission that was previously too difficult to complete.
Along with a variety of new weapons and effects, CRIMSON SEA 2 also features a series of enhanced Neo-Psionic attacks- deadly energy waves that change
the tide of battle in a single move. By combining various weapons and Neo-Psionic techniques, a player can attack hundreds of enemies in a minute and achieve a thousand hit combos.
With the introduction of new characters, modes of play, and an expanded story, CRIMSON SEA 2 will transport gamers into a fantastic world filled with fear and tension. Gamers will be seized by premonitions of looming danger. The deafening sounds of a stuttering heartbeat, and the eerie hum of distant machines will serve as a prelude to the impending alien onslaught and ballet of bullets.
