How You’ll Be Going Demon-Hunting In Over My Dead Body 2’s Dungeons

By Sato . March 27, 2014 . 5:31pm

Upcoming PlayStation Vita RPG Over My Dead Body 2 will feature different classes from Swordsmen to Archers, and other kinds types like Spearmen and Dancers. Here’s a look at how you’ll be putting your characters to use, as you take on deadly dungeons to face demons.


The dungeons are where  the demons dwell, and you’ll be able to find them near your base of operations in Over My Dead Body 2. By winning battles, you’ll gain experience points, and “Dedication Points,” used for the ceremonial inheritance of your offspring with the gods.


Additionally, you’ll obtain goods from fights, such as items, weapons, and armor. As mentioned in our earlier report, the dungeons you’ll see will vary per player, as their contents such as dungeon-type, internal structure, and demon-types will all be different.


At the start of fights, there will also be the “War Trophy Slot,” where matching three of the same item will result in its acquisition. Getting three of the same results will also net you more experience and Dedication Points.


There will be different kinds of dungeons, such as the colorful “100 Demons Festival” dungeon as seen in the above images. This dungeon in particular is said to have some sort of ritualistic utensil found in its depths.


Similar to other recent RPGs, Over My Dead Body 2 will be using the “Symbol Encounter” system, where you’ll start your battles by running into enemies seen on the field. By getting them from behind, you’ll find yourself in advantageous positions.


You may have noticed this clock-like figure on the bottom-right of some screenshots. This is actually the “Fire Clock” which tells you how much time goes by. Once all the flames go out, that means a month of in-game time has passed.


Since our heroes will only have a life-span of just two years, it’ll be crucial to keep a close eye on the clock, since you wouldn’t want them to die from the curse just before fighting a boss!



Over My Dead Body 2 is slated for release this summer for PlayStation Vita.

    This art style is absolutely wonderful. I really want this to come over.

    • xavier axol

      it’s very colorful which is a plus for me, that’s also one of the reason I love valkyria chronicles.

      • chroma816

        Same, actually. The cell-shaded look really helps bring out the vibrancy of the art and colors, and highlights the special design in both series.

        I might end up importing this if we don’t get it simply because I really like the art. That said, I have faith; this is a first party game (check) made by Japan Studios (check) and has a system that is similar to Conception 2, which is coming West (check).

        I think we’re safe to think we’ll get it.

    Is this like a turn based RPG? It looks beautiful

  • Gigan22

    This game looks better and better each time I see it. This is going to be the obligatory “localize this!”, but seriously, someone needs to localize it. This is the most interesting looking game coming out on Vita IMO.

  • I wanna play this.

  • I really hope someone decides to localize this.

    Sounds really fun

  • Skeptika Crediblus

    Localization? Localization.

  • SerChief

    Gameplay shots and art is fantastic! I have really high hopes for this game – premise is very interesting too. Will be looking out for this one.
