Game developer Lince Works has recently released the latest story trailer for upcoming video game Aragami 2.

The story trailer feature Kurai, a former slave of the Akatsuchi Empire and his rise to liberate his people, the Kurotsuba Clan from the curse that weakens them. The game will launch on September 17, 2021 on PC, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Game Pass.

The trailer introduces the lead character Kurai, who is reborn to become the last hope of the Kurotsuba clan in their quest to free their people and find a cure for their curse. The new video is ripe with gameplay footage but also includes looks at Aragami 2’s incredible cut-scenes, which were a staple established in the original game. It’s the perfect appetizer to prepare all the aspiring assassins for the main course in September 2021.

This sequel will take the community and critically-acclaimed experience of the first title to new levels. While stealth is still the foundation of the Aragami series experience, the addition of the combat system built from the ground up makes it even better. They are no longer helpless when they get discovered.

Aragami 2 is inspired by some of the best action games around with skill-based combat where players must strategically engage their enemies. Aragami are powerful assassins and are almost gods when they stalk from the shadows, but once they are discovered, they become vulnerable.

The original Aragami hooked fans with a stealth-focused game inspired by classic ninja experiences like Tenchu and rooted in the lore of a beautifully crafted world. The addition of the all-new strategic combat system takes what Tenchu made popular and elevates it to loftier heights. Even better, Aragami 2’s gripping narrative can be experienced in full completely solo or with friends as a co-op stealth-action adventure. The Aragami clan, known as Kurotsuba, must utilize their power as they attempt to fight back against the invading Akatsuchi Empire.
