ClaDun x2 Crawling onto PSP this August
I’m delighted to report that ClaDun x2, the sequel to one of my favorite PSP games, will be coming stateside this summer. I spent upwards of 20 hours playing the first game and enjoyed every minute of it. Truth be told, there was still an infinite amount of gameplay to be had, but my website duties required me to shelf it in order to move on through other titles. One of the game’s coolest features was its pixel-by-pixel character creator, which led me to create this guy. X2 will improve upon the character editor by allowing you to change not only the head but also the body of your characters. You can also edit weapons and, what sounds like the coolest feature yet, the background music to the game. The first person to create a Guile’s theme loop and send it to me will get whatever I have to give away. Check out some concept art of the different classes in the game. That sword-wielding mage looks pretty sweet.
Along with an entirely new campaign through an alternate version of Arcanus Cella, there are Ran-geons, New-geons, and Tri-geons to crawl through for dozens and dozens of hours on end. It looks as if the Magic Circle system is back, which is good news. However, it looks like X2 only supports 2 players as opposed to the 4 that the first one supported.
Here’s what looks like your cast of core characters:
I guess Crosstine, the cat of noble bloodline, has been replaced by a dog this time around. I’m sure this game is going to be great. Look for more info in the coming months. I’m looking forward to it like whoa. There’s a demo on the JP Store. If the PSN Store ever goes back up, hop on and check it out!
