Tears to Tiara II is a strategy/RPG that follows Hamilcar Barca, a young man eking his way through life indentured to the Divine Empire.

But when the Empire burns an innocent girl at the stake, he unleashes a terrible secret-his unbridled rage and demonic might of the berserker. With his newfound strength, and the insistence of a goddess, Hamilcar shoulders the burden of freeing his people from the tyranny of a corrupt Empire. On his journey to free himself and his enslaved people, he will fight alongside powerful allies, beasts, and even the gods themselves. However, he must control the demon within first, lest he himself turns the world to ash.

Although the game has "II" in the title, it requires no a priori knowledge of the games to enjoy the story. The characters, their relationships and more are revealed in visual novel-style gameplay over an 80-hour experience with the original Japanese dialogue audio and English text

Key Features:

  • More than 15 main characters to get to know as the story unfolds in visual novel style. From a timid lad who hides an intense hatred within to a crude war goddess who's never seen the earth below, characters will meet, forge relationships and alliances, and get pushed to their limits in the quest to free themselves from the Divine Empire.
  • Strategic turn-based gameplay will challenge the most battle-hardened generals with its combat. Use your allies, and even giant creatures, to help turn the tide in battle.
  • Joint Attacks, Consecutive Strikes, and Boost Magic mechanics add extra depth to the strategy gameplay and make for more replayability.
  • Original Japanese story and battle audio.

Tears to Tiara II will be released on the PS3 for a price of $39.99, with pricing information to follow soon.
