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.
