In preparation for the Playstation 2 RPG Tamamayu Saga II, developer Genki has a series of fun events planned to generate excitement before the game's August 30 release in Japan. Titled Jade Cocoon II in North America, the events will take place early this month and give Japanese gamers a chance to meet development team members, play the finished game, and score a free preview disc.
Set 100 years after the events of the first game, the sequel contains many improvements, including an updated battle system, giving players the ability to fight with both multiple characters and battle formations. Japanese gamers need only visit Sofmap and Laox locations in Akihabara on August 4 to see the changes for themselves.
North American gamers may not get the chance to party with Genki, but will get the chance to play the improved game sometime in the future, localization courtesy of UbiSoft.
