Dark Cloud 2
 
Dark Cloud was a dungeon-searching RPG with a Pokemon style collecting element to it. In order to complete the game, players had to resemble a village which had been destroyed by an evil force. The pieces of the village were hidden in eggs located in various parts of the dungeons. One memorable feature was the Georama aspect were players could place parts of the village on a map and then with a press of a button swoop down into the village and walk around. Dark Cloud 2 will have an improved Georama system that will allow players to build worlds in greater detail. Buildings no longer snap to a grid, they can be placed at an angle. The could also be placed on top of each other or on stilts, and can be varied in colour. Parts of the game will be set in the future. There will be two playable characters in this sequel each with their own unique skills. Dark Cloud 2 is due for release in 2003.
