Similar to its pioneer, Einherjar 2 presents and escalates turn-based factors to a higher extent. More terrains which influence characters' movement and abilities have been updated to bring a diversity of tactics to players. Now each Viking unit may possess Universal Elements (Fire, Earth, Water, Thunder) to enhance his skills and power. The graphics, animation and music are upgraded to bring a fresh experience to both veteran and new players.
Currently Einherjar 2 is in Japanese only, but according to the recent trend of Appirits's games, Einherjar 2 is very likely to be made into a separate English version with unique features, similar to the case of Einherjar 1 which has drawn much attention when it is released in early 2012 for the international market.
For now, if you feel bored of Western RPG school and look for a cool change of turn-based JP art in an online gaming environment, Einherjar (EN) and Einherjar 2 (JP) are recommended.
