Nautilus has announced additional details regarding its PlayStation 2 RPG Shadow Hearts II. Apart from the previously announced protagonists Nicholas Conrad and Kallen Koenig, the game will feature eight-year old Jeanne, a girl who has been living in the town of Domremy together with her mom, ever since her dad died two years ago. Other characters include a two-year old white wolf named Blance, who has been living in forest near Domremy. Last but not least, there are Gepetto and Cornelia. The former is an old man of apparently more than 60 years of age, who used to earn a living in Paris by creating puppets, one of them being Cornelia. Currently he is living in Domremy as a retired pensioner.
Shadow Hearts II will be available in Japan sometime this winter.
