New release: Crystal Story II
Word reaches me that there’s a new indie jRPG on the scene called Crystal Story II. Developed by Emmanuel Salva Cruz, Crystal Story II reportedly features a whole bunch of minigames in addition to its jRPG core.
Crystal Story II is a turn-based RPG that follows the story of a young Dragon on his quest to defeat an evil witch. He must seek allies to aid him on his journey and save the world from the oncoming invasion.
Crystal Story II, like many indie RPGs of the past 10 years, is clearly inspired by the Final Fantasy series. Unlike most of those games, this one isn’t made in RPG Maker, and features entirely original graphics in an anime style. You can see for yourself in the official trailer:
Crystal Story II is available for a piddling $2.99 on Steam for Windows and Mac. You can also pick up a mobile version of the game for Android over on Google Play, priced at $1.99. The original, browser release (which lacks certain quests and mini-games available in the paid versions) is playable for free on Kongregate.
