Eponasoft Announce 'Mysterious Song II: Eternal Silence' Homebrew RPG Sequel For PC Engine CD

Eternal-Silence-Mysterious-Song-II-PC-Engine-Homebrew-RPG-AnnouncedLate last year a highly anticipated homebrew adventure hit the PC Engine CD known as Mysterious Song. This traditional RPG was a remake of an old MS-DOS title, one which has been so well received that its sequel is now in development.

Eponasoft, the developer behind these PC Engine homebrews published by Frozen Utopia (amongst several others) have just uploaded a work-in-progress video of the role playing game's sequel, Mysterious Song II: Eternal Silence. Although a lot of action displayed looks somewhat identical to the original title in the series, the video's description goes on to detail some of the new features and planned extras:

Although based on the original MSR game engine, MS2:ES introduces several new features as compared to its predecessor, many of which are standard RPG fare that probably should have been included in the original (but were left out due to the original MS-DOS MS1 not having them). New playable characters are involved in the storyline, and a whole new range of items, equipment, and spells have been added, including new Summons and abilities. True to its predecessor, battles in MS2:ES are quick (although not portrayed in this early video), and the challenge level is roughly the same. Enemies are larger and more intimidating, with some spanning almost the entire screen. There are even parts of the game where the player controls two parties at once, a la Final Fantasy 6.

Unlike MSR, MS2:ES is epic in scope and offers many hours of gameplay. Great detail has been put into both the storyline and gameplay mechanics, and special care has been taken to not disrupt all of the things that made its predecessor so much fun to play.

While no release date or further information is currently known about this upcoming release, we'll be keeping a close eye on any further development made on Mysterious Song II: Eternal Silence.
