Idea Factory International has announced a release date for the upcoming anime action RPG sequel Dusk Diver 2. Mixing brawler elements with Musou-like gameplay and RPG progression, Dusk Diver 2 will be coming to the Switch on 30th August.
To celebrate the release date, Idea Factory has launched a brand new trailer jam-packed with over-the-top action, neon hair, and huge explosions. It also features some brand new playable characters — Leo, Le Viada, and Bahet — all of whom bring unique skills to the table and can support in battle.
This sequel follows on from a year after the events of the first game and sees Yumo return to the spotlight. After reluctantly saving the world from Chaos Beasts, she’s now joined by her friends to once again take arms and defend the Human Realm.
Idea Factory has shared more information about the game below:
One year ago, Yang Yumo solved the Youshanding incident that struck the city of Ximending, and restored balance to the dimensions.
She is now in college and seems to be leading a peaceful everyday life while working hard at her part-time job, but the Youshanding incident left a deep scar that is still eating away at her body.
Then one day, she receives a report that a Chaos Beast has appeared in Youshanding. And so Yumo takes to the battlefield once again.
Key Features

– From Ximending to Taipei City – With a deeper and grander-scale story, the setting moves from Ximending to Taipei City.
– Multiple Playable Characters – Your non-playable allies from the original Dusk Diver are now playable via Dusk Diver 2‘s new partner swap system. The play style also changes to match each character’s performance.
– Real-Life Taipei Store Collaborations – Real-world stores will appear in the game once again. Enter these stores to purchase special items.
– Combo and Break Strike – Activate a “Break Strike” by comboing enemies into the “Break” state. Massive damage and skill scenes heighten the exhilaration.
– Deeper Sub-Quests – With more sub-quests available than the original Dusk Diver, the story dives deeper into the characters.
You’ll also be able to pre-order a Day One Edition from the Idea Factory International Store soon which will net you an exclusive trading card.
We really hope the sequel can improve upon the original game from 2019. While we enjoyed the combat to a degree, we also found it repetitive, and thought that the streets of Ximending were a little empty:
Will you be picking up the sequel on 30th August? Let us know!

RPG lover first and Nintendo fan second, Alana is often found overthinking battle strategies, characters, and stories. Fortunately, she’s also easily pleased by anything Yoshi-related, creepy-but-cute Pokémon, and SEGA air pirates.

Cool. I wanted to give this one a shot. Didn’t think it was coming west. I’ll give it a whirl

I have the first one on PS4, but might grab the sequel on Switch instead if performance is decent.
Paraka
I am almost done with the first. It was mildly entertaining, actually.
Will get the second.
SteamEngenius
I’ve eyed the first one many times but never picked it up. According to Dekudeals it’s been dropping a dollar a month when it goes on sale so…maybe in a few more months.
Chocobo_Shepherd
yay! The first one had flaws, but ultimately I really liked it! Can’t wait for the sequel!
LEGEND_MARIOID
I deleted the first one from the wishlist after average reviews of around 6/10 like NL’s review itself. However I may get this one.
Xiovanni
The PS version looks nice. I’ll get it if it comes to Xbox.
