Set on a ravaged world, Ninety-Nine Nights II invites us to take on all comers in a series of battles. The story is told from five different perspectives – including humans, elves and Goblins – as we're pitted against wave after wave of adversaries in a ‘last man standing’ free-for-all. Each of the species is given a specific back-story which unfolds as the game progresses, while the various races also bring unique skills and abilities to the battle field.
At its heart, Ninety-Nine Nights II is a combat title, with hundreds of enemy creatures on screen simultaneously. As the camera picks over the action, we can use a wealth of easily-effected combo attacks to carve a path through the enemy, and also use whatever weapons and items come to hand. At the end of each skirmish, we'll then face a ‘Titanic Boss Battle’ against the champion of our current adversary, where we're forced to move quickly and locate the well hidden weak spots of these seemingly unstoppable behemoths.
Ninety-Nine Nights II also has a two-player co-op online mode, wherein players team up against the oncoming hordes, working together to expand their combo range to take out more enemy assailants at once. This two-player mode features online ranking boards detailing the most effective pairings across the globe.
A release date has yet to be announced.
