The gaming world is set to experience another thrilling adventure as Aksys Games announces the release of Spirit Hunter: Death Mark II, scheduled to hit the shelves on February 15, 2024.
This game, which is the third installment in the Spirit Hunter series, promises to bring more haunting investigations and supernatural mysteries to players around the world.
In Spirit Hunter: Death Mark II, players will find themselves back in Tokyo’s H City, following the story of Kazuo Yashiki, the protagonist from the previous games. This time, the mystery revolves around Konoehara Academy, a place that has been shrouded in darkness and mystery since the disappearance of a series of students.
Yashiki, taking on the role of a teacher, must delve into the depths of the academy, searching for clues and unraveling the secrets behind the students’ disappearance.
The game introduces new gameplay elements, including 2D side-scrolling exploration sections, providing players with a fresh perspective and a unique way to interact with the game’s environment.
Players can also expect to see a handful of side characters, some of which are returning faces from Spirit Hunter: Death Mark, who will assist Yashiki in his investigation.
The official website and Steam page for Spirit Hunter: Death Mark II are now live, offering players a glimpse into the game’s eerie world. Additionally, fans of the series can look forward to a 14-track original soundtrack CD, available exclusively through the North American Aksys Online Store.
Developed by Experience, the studio behind popular dungeon-crawlers such as Demon Gaze and Stranger of Sword City, the Spirit Hunter series has garnered a strong following since its debut with Spirit Hunter: Death Mark in 2017, followed by Spirit Hunter: NG in 2018. Spirit Hunter: Death Mark II was brought to life through a successful crowdfunding campaign on Campfire, where it managed to more than double its initial goal, raising over 30 million yen.
As we eagerly await the release of Spirit Hunter: Death Mark II, players can expect a thrilling adventure filled with suspense, mystery, and the supernatural. The new 2D sections and “Suspensive Acts,” which require players to make choices under pressure, are sure to add an extra layer of excitement and challenge to the game.
