Celebrate Halloween With a Treat from XSEED Games: Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection, Now Available on PC!

No Tricks Here; Trueblood Vampires, Masked Luchadores, Stealthy Ninja, and More Await in this “Spooky” Classic Action RPG from Nihon Falcom

p>Torrance, Calif. – October 31, 2017 – XSEED Games, the independent-minded publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., today announced that Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection, from acclaimed RPG developer Nihon Falcom, is now available for purchase on Windows PC via Steam, GOG, and the Humble Store by Humble Bundle with a 10% off launch discount from its regular selling price of $29.99/€29.99/£24.99. Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection brings the original 2008-2009 PC title Zwei II Plus to a global PC audience for the first time with a suite of visual improvements geared toward modern PCs, a full English localization, and a robust English dub with over 2,000 previously unvoiced lines newly recorded to help bring the world of Granvallen to life. Don’t let Halloween pass you by without picking up this RPG treat!

Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection is a charmingly presented action RPG featuring a unique food-based experience system, a colorful cast of characters, and a quirky, standalone narrative. When the haughty vampire princess Alwen du Moonbria saves the life of brash, treasure-hunting pilot Ragna Valentine by binding him to her service through a blood contract, the unlikely duo must set off to recover Alwen’s stolen magic and her ancestral castle. Players take control of the dual protagonists throughout their adventures, using Ragna’s physical prowess and weapons alongside trueblood vampire Alwen’s mastery of magic to discover the combinations that best fit their playstyle and the obstacles they must overcome.

The game’s real-time action combat is tied to a leveling process that allows players to choose when to apply experience through a unique food-based system. Rather than earning experience after combat, experience is gained by eating a variety of foods, which also serve as the game’s primary source of healing. And if players wait to chow down, they can combine their food into far superior culinary delights that grant significantly more experience! This means that players can tailor the challenge presented by their enemies through a steady diet, either by eating everything that crosses their path or by saving up for a greater gain in the future!

A wide variety of pets can fight alongside players, too, helping take down some of the massive bosses encountered on this lengthy adventure through the land of Ilvard. Fans of vampires, treasure-hunting, fairies, ninja, luchadores, cat-people, vintage airplanes, magic castles, robots, chickens that lay bombs, chain-smoking nuns, and more will find lots to love with Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection!

Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection was developed by Nihon Falcom and is published worldwide for Windows PC by XSEED Games via Steam, GOG, and the Humble Store by Humble Bundle with a 10% off launch discount from its regular selling price of $29.99/€29.99/£24.99.
