Dusk Diver is an action RPG set in the real-world city of Ximending, located in Taiwan. It follows the story of Yang Yumo, a high schooler who must protect the city from invading demons, traveling between the real world and an alternate dimension called Youshanding. The game released in North America and Europe back in October 2019 for the Nintendo Switch, PC, and PlayStation 4.
The 26-second announcement trailer also revealed that Dusk Diver‘s main protagonist Yumo will return in Dusk Diver 2. Additionally, the video description notes that some time has passed since the events of Dusk Diver as the then-high schooler Yumo is now a freshman in university. JFI Games plans to release new information about the sequel’s characters, settings, and changes via Dusk Diver 2‘s official website, Facebook page, and Twitter account.
