It’s been a how minute since the first Re;Lord title was released here in the West, but thankfully it seems the technical issues that held up the sequel have been resolved! Re;Lord 2 ~The witch of Cologne and black cat~ has finally been released here in the West. The folks at Sekai Project and Denpasoft are are sorry for the wait on this one, and say news about the last part of this trilogy will be on the way very soon.


Story

A fantasy world where magic exists.

This is a story where demons lived among the denizens of the world. And it’s the demon realm that was about to face an unprecented crisis when three “Witches of Ruin” suddenly appeared and invaded the demon country of Saarland.

Possessing power beyond what the demon kingdom could muster a defense against, Saarland had no choice but to surrender the region of Groessen to these invaders. The witches were not content to stop there as they also decided to make an example out of the demons by transforming them into stuffed animals to further rob them of their dignity.

Half a year has passed since the appearance of the witches. As if straight out of a fairy tale, the majority of the people of Groessen have been transformed into stuffed animals and live under the rule of the Witches of Ruin. It is up to Wilfried, son of the governor of Groessen, to lead his ragtag army into battle with the witches and liberate Groessen.

After defeating Erika Anders, one of the Witches of Ruin, and liberating the district of Herfort, Wilfried and his allies invade the domain of the Witch of Ruin, Iris, in order to break the spell cast over his father and his friends.

The District of Cologne.

Beyond the capital lies the idyllic, vast grasslands of this district. It’s common to see animals grazing in the area and the popular tourist destination of Bebra Lake is home to Saarland’s thriving fishing industry. With that said, it’s still mostly a rural area.

The people here have been transformed into crows, fairies and demons as if they were the messengers of the witch. While he questions the value of the witch’s conquest of this territory, for the sake of all demonkind, Wilfried charges into battle against Iris.

Meanwhile, the military finds out that the witch, Erika was defeated by a mere student and decides to dispatch a mercenary force, armed with firearms to Cologne to defeat Iris themselves.

About Steve Baltimore

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.
