The first details have been released about Dungeon Travelers 2-2: The Maiden Who Fell Into Darkness and the Book of Beginnings, the long awaited dungeon RPG from Aquaplus.
In this week’s Weekly Famitsu, we learn that the game is set on an alternate timeline from Dungeon Travelers 2, where you lost against the Demon God and fell into darkness. The heroines personalities have been switched, their appearances have become darker and more monster-like, and Fried appears more child-like.
The battle system has been revamped so it’s easier to use, as well as the addition of a backlog and there are some areas where magical effects will also be stronger.
Additionally, some characters have been detailed from the magazine (with translations provided by Gematsu):
Fried Einhard (voiced by Taishi Murata) – Defeated by the the Demon God, he lost all of his memories of the past. In his darkness befallen state, he appears boy-like, and has red eyes and unkempt hair.
Souffle Twinny (voiced by Ayane Sakura) – A treasure hunter who loves Therians. She took on the Demon God with Fried and company, lost the battle, and went missing. In her darkness befallen state, she wears a black robe and has a crow on her shoulder.
Yuni Korgtech (voiced by Hisako Kanemoto) – A pure and innocent troubadour. After losing the battle against the Demon God, she grew wings and went missing. In her darkness befallen state, she is much more exposed and has large wings.
Grisherina Efleanor (voiced by Yu Shimamura) – A polite and strong veteran explorer. She was Irena’s friendly rival, and disappeared somewhere after losing the battle against the Demon God. Her appearance in Dungeon Travelers 2-2 is unknown.
Yae Houzouji (voiced by Yura Hasegawa) – A woman of a distinguished family from the Lachann Empire that values the martial arts. She disappeared after being defeated by the Demon God. In Dungeon Travelers 2-2, her eyes are shining red and she has a sharp tail. Her weapon is a Gatling gun.
