For fans of classic RPGs and video game enthusiasts alike, the long-awaited sequel to the 2015 fan-favorite 8-Bit Adventures is finally here! 8-Bit Adventures 2 launches today on PC via Steam. The game has opted into GeForce NOW but I would recommend caution as I would be less confident that this game will come.
Filled with character-focused narrative, strategic turn-based combat, deep party customisation, and a fantastical world brought to life by vibrant 8-Bit inspired visuals, this JRPG-inspired sequel is much more than just a throwback. With a cast of seven playable characters, including a blind martial artist and an Exterminator-class robot, players will have the chance to experience constant variety as they explore the expansive world map filled with secrets, tackle character-driven side-quests and challenging Super Boss battles.
One of the key features of 8-Bit Adventures 2 is its deep party customisation system. Players can equip Augments to customise their party and unleash nearly a hundred unique abilities, including Team Attacks and Omega Burst finishing moves. The game also boasts a tightly paced story that balances the classic JRPG experience with modern design, taking players on an adventure that spans from exploring ancient ruins to solving a robot murder mystery.
In addition, 8-Bit Adventures 2 features no random battles, so players can focus on immersing themselves in the world and story without interruption. The game’s soundtrack, composed by an award-winning composer, adds another layer of depth to the gaming experience, making it truly unforgettable.
While 8-Bit Adventures 2 may be a sequel, anyone can jump into this all-new JRPG adventure, making it accessible to both fans of the original and newcomers to the franchise. With its unique blend of classic RPG elements and modern design, 8-Bit Adventures 2 is a must-play for RPG fans and video game enthusiasts alike. Get ready to embark on a journey filled with excitement, adventure, and plenty of 8-Bit inspired nostalgia!
