In 2008, #onthisday Izuna 2: The Legend of the Unemployed Ninja Returns was released on the Nintendo DS!
Just like its predecessor, Izuna 2: The Unemployed Ninja Returns is a strange mix of comedic writing, token anime structure, and punishing, hardcore dungeon crawling. The game follows Izuna, a smack-talking smarty pants who seems to know she's stuck inside a game, constantly commenting on players, story lines, and situations, and her gang of friends. In Izuna 2, the game opens with a town wedding and the eventual disappearance of Izuna's best friend, Shino-Sis, and from there the adventure branches out into the expected level-to-level battling, as Izuna roams the land in search of her friend, and battles powerful gods and bosses along the way.
The core structure of Izuna is just as traditional as it ever was, so you'll explore dungeons with a classic "move equals turn" design. Every time you take a step, use an item, or attack, so will every other enemy in the dungeon, so it ends up being a hybrid of turn-based and active gameplay. If you die in a dungeon, you'll keep your experience and level, but lose all your items and money.
Izuna 2 doesn’t go out of its way to innovate, so while returning players will feel right at home, the game is just as closed off and narrowly targeted as it started. The gameplay, visuals, and style of the game have remained nearly identical to the previous package.
This game is slowly starting to creep up in value, so pick it up soon if you are collecting Nintendo DS and Atlus games!
