Aragami 2 inserts players in a fantastic Asian-influenced world where they play as Aragami ninja assassins.

From darkness, the Shadow clan has returned.

Taking place 100 years after the events of the first Aragami game, a new story unfolds amongst the chaos born of tensions between rival factions and an insatiable thirst for power. In this mysterious world where souls wander seeking revenge or freedom, the battles unravel around you by an insatiable thirst for power and control over the Rashomon Valley. Its top contender, the expansionist young nation of Akatsuchi, has arrived to control the valley, its resources and people to fuel their fire empire.

Aragami 2 sets players off on an action-packed adventure that takes place in a fantastic world with influences from Asian culture, mythology and folklore, in which powerful military factions rule the lands. It is a time of war, unrest and conflict in which players will live out their ultimate ninja fantasy as Aragami; encountering vivid stealth sequences and epic battles with stunningly choreographed combat. 

The single and co-operative multiplayer game puts players in the protagonist role of a shadow assassin on a mission to rescue its people from an invading army while searching for a cure to the dreadful disease that hunts them. As “Aragami”, players will learn how to strategically choose their approach to battle as they fight to defend Rashomon valley, and discover how the Aragami become legend. Aragami 2 also encourages players to engage in their ninja power fantasy alongside friends: Ninja groups of up to three players can tackle the full campaign together or hop in and out at their leisure.

Fans of the Aragami franchise and stealth games alike will find in this sequel a fresh new action stealth experience with more agile stealth mechanics, new combat features, and gripping narrative.

Lince Works revealed a brand new Aragami 2 story trailer that introduces the main protagonist and pulls players into the intense conflict that sets the stage for this sequel.

The trailer introduces the lead character Kurai, who is reborn to become the last hope of the Kurotsuba clan in their quest to free their people and find a cure for their curse. The new video is ripe with gameplay footage but also includes looks at Aragami 2’s incredible cut-scenes, which were a staple established in the original game.

It’s the perfect appetizer to prepare all the aspiring assassins for the main course in September.
