After a long time —more than we’d have liked… —We finally have some exciting news to share! We can now announce that the release date of Aragami 2 is set for September 17, 2021 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, and PC!
It’s been a long way and a lot of hard work from all the team since we first announced Aragami 2, and we’re so happy to be able to finally give you a date.
Moreover, we proudly present the first look at Aragami 2 gameplay with a thrilling cinematic, in-engine look trailer that shows a clear evolution of the stealth-action franchise. In Aragami 2, you will face the incoming terror of the Akatsuchi Empire which threatens to invade and destroy the Rashomon Valley. The Aragami will emerge as a clan to defend their own, utilizing the shadows to avail their cause.
The original Aragami hooked fans with a stealth-focused game inspired by classic ninja experiences like Tenchu and rooted in the lore of a beautifully crafted world. In our opinion, this sequel is taking the franchise to loftier heights with enhanced stealth mechanics, a wider variety of abilities, shadow powers and character customization features, and an all-new combat system where every move must be calculated.
We’ve grown a lot since working on the original game and, as a larger studio, we have an opportunity to realize all the full potential of Aragami with this sequel. One of the things that we are truly excited about is the new combat system which not only gives existing fans a new way to play but welcoming new players with a more intense gameplay experience in Aragami 2.
Pre-orders for Aragami 2 are open now on Steam ($34.99 / €34.99 / £29.99) and you can take advantage of a 15% off discount prior to launch. Aragami 2 will also be available in the PlayStation Store ($39.99 / €39.99 / £34.99), and Xbox Store ($39.99 / €39.99 / £34.99) at launch.

And that’s all for now! Thank you all for your support, and stay tuned for more exciting news in the upcoming weeks!
