Fuga: Melodies of Steel 2 Launching in May
Developer CyberConnect2 announced that Fuga: Melodies of Steel 2 will release worldwide on May 11, 2023. The game will be available for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch. A Digital Deluxe Edition will be available that includes an 80-page digital art book, a 15-track digital soundtrack, in-game sleepwear costumes, an in-game Dummy Energy for the Managarm, an in-game Dummy Soul for the Soul Cannon, and a set of in-game items. The game will include Japanese voice overs, and Japanese, English, French, and Spanish text support at launch, with Italian, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, German, Korean, LATAM Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, and Russian text support to be added later.
Fuga: Melodies of Steel 2 is a direct sequel to 2021’s Little Bronx Tail title Fuga: Melodies of Steel. The first game takes place in a setting inspired by France during World War II. The game follows a group of eleven children in command of a tank as they aim to rescue their captured families. The tank has a very powerful weapon, the Soul Cannon, but using it requires one of the characters to sacrifice themselves.
Fuga: Melodies of Steel 2 takes place a year after the events of the previous game and sees half of the children trapped inside the Taranis after it goes berserk. Returning characters Malt Marzipan, Hanna Fondant, Mei Marzipan, Kyle Bavarois, Boron Brioche, and Socks Million are joined by new character Vanilla Muscat as they set out in the Tarascus on a rescue mission. The game retains the turn-based combat of the previous title, but adds new skills including the Managram, a second form of the Soul Cannon that uses the children’s life force as its power source. It also adds a new Judgment system where player choices affect the story’s direction. More details can be found on the game’s official website.
