XSEED Announces Zwei: The Arges Adventure for Western PC Release The original Zwei is making itself known. 12.05.17 - 11:06 PM
The wonderful folks over at XSEED Games are at it again: hot off of their work on Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection, the company recently announced that they will be bringing the original Zwei adventure stateside as Zwei: The Arges Adventure, in Q1 2018.
Originally released by Nihon Falcom as Zwei!! for the PC, PlayStation 2, and PlayStation Portable, this marks the first time that this charming action-RPG had seen a Western release. This will also be "the most feature-rich" version of the game, including PC-exclusive feature such as a Ys-themed typing tutorial (yes, really), a block puzzle minigame, and a variety of unlockables. You can check out the announcement trailer and an official synopsis below.
Set on the mysterious time-forgotten floating continent of Arges, Zwei: The Arges Adventure follows the exploits of socially awkward teenage step-siblings Pokkle and Pipiro as they find their monotonous, ho-hum village life rudely interrupted by a mysterious figure who steals six holy idols from the local shrine. Pokkle, a master craftsman of terrible puns and a wannabe hero, and Pipiro, a sarcastic mage-in-training with an obsession for fashion and a penchant for speaking her mind no matter how bad an idea that may be, jump at the chance to track down the masked thief and return the idols to their village – Pokkle for the fame, glory, and opportunities to make more puns, and Pipiro purely for the hefty reward on offer. Their adventures will take them to every corner of the continent, leading them to encounter a wide array of over-the-top friends and foes as they uncover a far more sinister plot to revive an ancient “Demon Lord” and get a very up close and personal lesson on nearly 500 years’ worth of Arges history.
