Night Runner (temporary title) puts you in control of Lily Marleen who is a night dweller. During the day, Lili has to run from the Army of God who wants to catch her. The tables turn when the sun sets because Lili has the ability to summon a dark angel at night. Night Runner will be released as a free to play game for smartphones via GREE. Additional items will be sold for a fee.

    I thought this was a real game…….

    • British_Otaku

      “Real game” is a little harsh, but I was hoping for a typical gaming system game. Maybe a Mirror’s Edge type of thing with CC2’s Ultimate Asura’s Storm cutscene stuff (my guess from the blurb). >_>

    • raitouniverse

      Well it’s not a “fake” game, though for this concept, I think GREE game is pretty much what you’ll net.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    lol I got so pumped from the article title. Didn’t realize it was for GREE

  • Aoshi00

    Too bad it’s for cellphone.. the art looks nice and I’m a fan of CC2.. would be fit as a Vita title w/ touch control.

  • Göran Isacson

    Huh. So a run and dodge game by “day”, and a run and chase down your poor unfortunate victims game by “night”? Somewhat novel, and I do like the character designs.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    The game does looks nice but sadly it is another game that is released on smartphones.T_T

    It makes me wonder why don’t they try to put some of these type of games on PSN or E-Shop.T_T Should not that market be more profitable rather than gambling in a very big market such as smartphone market.

  • On GREE what?! No! Now I can’t play it. They should’ve just done what they did with Guilty Dragon…they must have a reason for it though. Maybe it’ll come to US GREE.

      It’s like having region locking on smartphones too :/

    I immediately thought Iphone when I saw Cyberconnect 2’s name and the article.If it ain’t a Naruto fighting game, a .hack movie, or some type of fighting game in general then it’s a phone game.

  • Even though its for Androids and the iOS, I still want to try the game out. Hope they plan on localizing it like Guilty Dragon. It looks very interesting and the art style looks nice too. I especially like these pictures lol

  • Neophoton

    I kept tossing my money at the screen right up until it got to “smartphones,” then I quietly gathered the money back into my wallet. I won’t be able to play this game, but I trust it’ll probably be good.

  • malek86

    So I guess it’s half Temple Run and half… something else? Not sure exactly how the night part would be.

  • Romored

    CC2, why you no put your most interesting games on real consoles?

    • ShinGundam

      Because Japan hate mid/high end games now.

  • Elvick

    I’ll check it out if/when it comes out here.

    Aren’t CC2 also working on a sequel to Solatorobo?

  • Robert M. Fenner

    Haha Lili Marlene.

  • zferolie
