Retro art style with the use of pixelated graphics, anti-hero protagonist, dirt digging, parodies of other videogames or animes, addictive gameplay… it was hard not to love the original Yuusha no Kuse ni Namaikida when it first came out late last year. Can the sequel, Yuusha no Kuse ni Namaikida or 2 (or2), stay fresh and provide enough content to warrant a purchase? The short answer is a resounding YES.
A little introduction for those unfamiliar with the series, of which its title I will translate as “Heroes don’t be arrogant”. The goal of the game is simple, you are the “God of Destruction” who must keep the “Evil King” from being abducted by those cocky RPG heroes. You will be given a pickax to dig dirts, uncover the creatures within, use them to fight off the heroes and breed stronger creatures. However, it’s definitely tougher than it sounds as there are tonnes of things to keep track of during the game but that’s where the fun really begins.
