Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon is a fantasy action RPG developed by Gust and published by Koei Tecmo. The game’s storyline has been described as a “gothic fairy tale”. Alushe Anatoria, the protagonist of the first title, makes a return as a resurrected half-demon, and strives to rescue her childhood friend Liliana who was chosen to become the Bride of Time, a sacrifice to save the world from the evil Moon Queen. Aiding Alushe in her battles are “Lilies”, partners with whom she can build deeper bonds and awaken their latent abilities, as well as “Servans”, tamed demons with diverse and useful powers.
