Roguelike Deckbuilder Phantom Rose 2 Sapphire Revealed
Publisher Playism announced it is partnering with developer makaroll on the release of Phantom Rose 2 Sapphire. The game is a follow-up to 2019 title Phantom Rose, and is planned for release on PC and Mac via Steam later this year.
Phantom Rose 2 Sapphire is set in a world where Phantoms constantly threaten its populace. The game follows Aria, who wakes up in an empty classroom with no memories and only a Marian Magic Academy student card in her pocket. The adventure sees players go through increasing levels of difficulty, while an Arcade Mode lets players take on bosses for rewards and Custom Mode lets them create their own challenges.
The game’s combat system features a draw-less mechanic, with players instead having to manage the cooldowns of their cards. Phantom Rose 2 Sapphire introduces a class system, with players able to select the Blade or Mage class, each with its own unique cards and mechanics. Players can encounter other survivors who may provide assistance, and can collect over 200 cards by defeating phantoms and rescuing others.
Reminds me a bit of Megaman Battle Network. This could be interesting.
