Not much is known about the game's storyline so far except for the fact that demonic forces have been unleashed once again and it is up to Zangetsu, accompanied by old and new allies, to vanquish them.
The gameplay remains relatively the same as it does in the prequel except for several major changes. For example, in addition to Miriam, Alfred, and Gebel there are three new playable characters that possess new abilities and sub-weapons. The storyline will be divided into episodes, allowing players to select levels whenever they wish, provided that they complete them first.
Curse of the Moon 2 was first announced by Inti Creates as a sequel to the first on June 23rd, 2020 due to its prequel being well-received by fans and backers of Ritual of the Night's successful Kickstarter campaign. Dominique as well as two new characters, Robert and Hachi, are confirmed to be playable alongside Zangetsu on the same day the announcement trailer was launched.
On June 27, 2020, the original heroes of Curse of the Moon are confirmed to be playable. On the same day, July 10th was announced to be the game's release date.
