Magnacarta 2 Battle Screens? We Have ‘Em

By Spencer . October 2, 2009 . 10:26am


Namco Bandai is about to launch Magnacarta 2 in North America. The game and its amnesiac hero, Juto, wash ashore on October 13.


You can give Magnacarta 2 a go before then. A 889MB demo is up on the Japan’s Xbox Live Marketplace. Namco Bandai hasn’t announced any plans to bring the demo here, but the demo is fairly easy to navigate through once you pass the tutorial. Siliconera commenter Hello Hello posted comment with tips to get people through that too (thanks!!).


The tutorial is a little rough for non-Japanese speakers. Quick walkthrough:
-Go into the menu and manually change your leader.
-Do a chain
-Do a chain break a bunch of times until you’re sent to a new area.
Then you just fight baddies until you get to the boss and you’re done.

    everything in this game is good except the gamplay switching between characters every 5-7 seconds,the characters movement when thay take out thier weapons was furstrating,if you don’t switch the character you won’t be able to attack and if you overheated tha character he won’t be able to move for 4 seconds even though i said all of that i’ll buy the game since i need some jrpg

    Well I hope it’s awesome. I already got mine pre-ordered. Hell even if it’s not good at least I got that art book, holy hell.

      Even if it’s not good, the art book should be great. I have the Artbook from ATLUS USA’s Magna Carta release and Hyung-tae Kim is amazing. I especially love the design of the girl in blue with the umbrella from this game.

    I liked the demo. The overheating was kind of annoying, but the overall feedback from Jpn seems to be positive.

    I just received my Jpn copy tonight but my Jpn 360 just died on me two nights ago. Just sent it to the MS Texas repair center, I requested to have mine fixed or be replaced w/ a Jpn system, now keep my fingers crossed.. anybody has successfully get his/her Jpn system replaced in the US?

    I got the “booby” faceplate snapped on my other 360 (snatched it on ebay for $40), looks awesome, a little busy compared to the Last Remnant one but still looks good.

    I’m thinking if I should pre-order from GS for the artbook as well, got to love the illustrations.
