In addition, the developer provided details about the game’s setting, which by necessity feature some spoilers for Fuga: Melodies of Steel. Fuga: Melodies of Steel 2 takes place a year after the previous game. The continent of Gasco has been shattered into floating islands, with each region positions significantly altered due to air currents. The city of Pharaoh has become the new capital after suffering the least amount of damage. To get around the new airbourne archipelago, the people of Gasco have pioneered airships and ports, which are the main way of getting around.
Fuga: Melodies of Steel 2 sees half of the children trapped inside the Taranis after it goes berserk, with the remaining children setting 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. Fuga: Melodies of Steel 2 will release worldwide on May 11, 2023, for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch.
