Time’s up. The “or2” splash page is for a sequel to Yuusha no Kuse ni Namaikida! Acquire didn’t go back to the drawing board with the sequel to their dungeon management series. You still use a pickaxe to make a maze, create a lair, and mine nutrients. The difference is you have a world map to explore and more monsters at your disposal. The boney worm is one of the new creatures you need to manage to in the delicate monster ecosystem to terminate nosey heroes who dare to step in your lair. Vanquish all the warriors and the town is yours. If one of the heroes drags you up to the surface it’s the end of the game.
In retrospect, Yuusha no Kuse ni Namaikida seems like an appetizer, Yuusha no Kuse ni Namaikida or2 is the real game. Perhaps Sony Computer Entertainment America passed on the first game because they knew a meaty sequel was in development. A date hasn’t been announced for Japan yet and since the secret is out we’ll be scanning E3 for any information if the Yuusha no Kuse ni Namaikida or2 will get an international release. Until then check out the first screenshots.
