Look Behind You, It’s Tears To Tiara II’s Animated Opening

By Spencer . July 10, 2013 . 12:08am

Tears to Tiara II is a sequel to Aquaplus’ strategy RPG. The animated opening doesn’t show any grid battles, but rest assured that Tears to Tiara II will have those and compared to the first game the story is more on the serious side too.


Tears to Tiara II is on track for release on October 24 and it will have a crossover character from Utawarerumono as a pre-order bonus.

    A shame Aquaplus hasn’t found a western publisher so far, I would have liked to play localized versions of the PS3 Tears to Tiara games.

    • Zeonsilt

      I hope they can find someone to bring this over here.(NISA or Aksys,probably).

      • Ladius

        I hope so, unless Tecmo Koei continues to rely on NISA for the Atelier localizations they will have an open slot for new PS3 games (even if they seem to have a new interest for Vita localizations), and maybe they will end up considering Tears to Tiara 2 or the previous entries in the franchise.

        • Kevadu

          NISA has pretty much stated that the only reason they did the localization for Ayesha is because they were already halfway through it when Gust was acquired. Tecmo Koei doesn’t seem to have any interest in using NISA in the future.

          • What a shame, they’re losing my $$$ that’s for sure, then again i never bought any of their repeat-ad-nauseum-spam-attack orochi/dynasty warriors games anyway, so it’s all good.

    • Trotmeister

      Indeed. It’s a wonder that Aksys is eager to localize whatever crap Idea Factory/Compile Heart spits out, and yet they’re deliberately ignoring games that are actually worthwhile.

      • Ladius

        There’s no need to make this into a developer x versus developer y fight, though, and I disagree with the exaggerations about IFCH (remember, Aquaplus started as an eroge company, and the original Tears to Tiara on PC has so many sex scenes it puts those other companies’ fanservice to shame, to the point of damaging the plot’s pacing in the game’s central part).

        Also, I don’t mean to target you specifically since you didn’t name a title, but it’s kind of sad to see how people jumped on Aksys for announcing Sorcery Saga on Vita as soon as they saw the Compile Heart logo, when with a minimum of research they could have discovered the actual developer was Class of Heroes’ ZeroDiv and CH only handled publishing duties.

        Anti-CH bias strike again.

        You mean you will sleep with your ps3? O.o

  • Lemon

    Totally loving the character designs. Especially that smile at the end…I want to protect it.

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    My god Spencer, how do you keep coming up with these article titles? LOL

  • Ocell

    I think that it has been forgotten the most interesting fact about this game, which is the hispanic ambientation with places like the semi-mithological city of Tartessos, the roman bridge of the river Ebro or the iberic meseta, all pictured in the website.

    • JeremyTMH

      Even in the previous title, the Empire was modeled after Rome. Arawn’s side was modelled close to England and the Arthurian legend.

      For 2 this time, yes they’re using hispania. Empire still modeled after Rome.

      Its a nice touch really.

  • Kyosuke Yoshino

    I will definitely import it!

  • Masa

    main character……..can’t Japan make some unique looking ones?
    I think i saw him in over 100 games i played this year alone….Arawn was awesome as he was a lot older than your usual MC.

    • JeremyTMH

      Unique, there isn’t such a thing. maybe if they had an mc that’s a pink slug, maybe that would be unique? :(

      The observations of ‘I’ve seen this character, this character resembles this blah blah blah’ is getting old honestly.

      Yes Arawn is cool, no doubt about, he’s so cool for being… well.. HIM… and the stuff he did no doubt.

      I won’t say he was unique though… he looks like Dante. His action of self sacrifice isn’t new either, there were many heroes in many rpgs who did the same, young or older. Want old skool? Well I can give an example of Ark in Terrnanigma.

      About the young hero thing… well attribute it to asian culture, asians used to come of age at 13 in the old days. Asian cultures celebrate youth and their concepts of beauty and virality differ quite vastly from the West. If they use some musclehead old geezer as an mc, its not going to sell and the poor game maker will see financial ruin in Japan.

      • Maybe if they make an MC designed like a Nobuyuki Fukumoto’s character such request could be satisfied.

      • Masa

        they still need to come up with new ideas, his personality will be the same as every other character too..

  • animedemon

    il wait for a PC port

  • Karmistral

    I still want this.

  • Robert Hendrie

    I await the anime version, I loved the first one

  • SoraShadowNever

    Another game that won’t go out of japan.

    • GÍlgamesh Goldenking

      It’s coming to west bro

  • Anime10121

    Now THATS a beautiful opening, its MUCH better than the last few Tales of Openings to be honest, and I have no idea what Tears to Tiara is about!
