You can find the new details below, via Koei Tecmo:

In Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon, players will encounter a number of unique and dastardly fiends and will have to rely on their close bonds with their companions to emerge victorious. The battle party will always be comprised of Aluche, the player’s character, an NPC of her choice, and up to two Servans. Each team member will bring a unique selection of skills to the equation, ranging from different fighting styles and weapons to the beautiful Lily Burst, a power-up that combines the extraordinary abilities of Aluche and her humanoid companion into one devastating blow.

Aluche’s Servan allies are also useful assets to the team, with their incredible Servan Actions, which can help turn the tide of battle in her favor! The invaluable Tricker types are able to gain an advantage by unleashing their elemental abilities, dealing critical status effects to their foes. One such Tricker is the mighty canine companion, Scharf, who sends electrified spheres onto the battlefield to paralyze and inflict lasting damage on enemies! Trickers can change form as they evolve, and can grow more powerful through Reincarnation, which drastically increases their stats, allowing them to access new types of attacks and unlock incredible abilities.

As for the player-controlled Aluche, she soon discovers that the blood of slain fiends can be used to heighten her body’s strength, and players are able to choose new abilities fitting their preferred play-style from a wide selection of varied combat styles!

To further detail the exciting combat and diverse evolutions featured in Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon, Koei Tecmo America has released a compelling new trailer which will introduce the diverse cast of characters that Aluche will meet along her journey. There is also a first look at new character Eleanor Ernest, the lively and passionate chocolatier, and a fresh look at a familiar face: Christophorus, the mysterious pure-blooded demon who returns from Nights of Azure. Both will bring their unique talents to bear in effort to aid Aluche in her fight against the Moon Queen.”

    I like the Servan redesigns. The rabbit girl in particular looks rather interesting.

  • Looks great. Guess I’ll have to finally pick up the first game so I can play through that.

    I was also hoping for a Switch port of Azure1 a la Bayonetta.
