Jade Cocoon 2 has gone gold
Ubi Soft Entertainment announced today that Jade Cocoon 2 for the PS2 has gone gold. Jade Cocoon 2 is the direct sequel to Jade Cocoon and will now be presented in a full 3D environment on the PS2. With the game beginning manufacturing, it will be released December 2001.
Jade Cocoon features an engaging story told with over 200 event scenes, full voice-over and over 1,000 enchanting character interactions. Characters creation and design were brought to life in Jade Cocoon 2 by world-famous Studio Ghibli veteran and Anime artist, Katsuya Kondou of "Kiki's Delivery Service", "Only Yesterday" and "Princess Mononoke".
Jade Cocoon 2 employs a turn-based battle system, allowing players to assign Divine Beasts onto a Beast Amulet, where players can use up to 8 beasts in battle. Through its simplistic system the game develops strategic gameplay through the location of minions and configuration of skills. In addition to the single player story mode, a 2-player battle mode allows you to challenge a friend.
