Today, Koei revealed it will be releasing a sequel to its innovative sci-fi adventure, Crimson Sea. Unlike its Xbox-exclusive predecessor, Crimson Sea 2 will only be available for the PlayStation 2 when it ships on March 30.
Like the original, Crimson Sea 2 is not about seafaring. It is set in the far-off solar system of Theophilus, where the Vipa alien/human hero Sho is once again fighting an interplanetary evil. Helping him defend against the new evil is Feanay, a female Vipa with magic-like mental powers. Players will switch between the two characters during different points in the game.
Crimson Sea 2 will feature 60 missions set in a non-linear universe. Players' characters will gain experience with each completed mission, allowing them to take on tougher challenges. It will also feature three new multiplayer modes, including co-op, death match, and competition, and numerous new details, like neo-psionic powers and improved weapons. As always, GameSpot will bring you more information on Crimson Sea 2 as it becomes available.
