First, very vague Neo Angelique sequel details  
Hey there, folks; the Brand New Summer event has come and gone, and according to Famitsu and Gamer, Koei released some...extremely broad details about the game:

- It's set two years after the first one
- The Aube Hunters have gathered together into a new manor
- The game is scheduled for release in 2017

And...that's it. There was also a promo image shown of Angelique & Rayne looking at each other, but no one's posted it yet. The official Twitter thinks the new Neoromance credit-card promotion is much more newsworthy. Hey, Koei: you do know what the "promo" in "promo image" means, don't you? Material can't promote something if you keep it hidden under a rock.

Anyhow: I wish that the details leaked were more inspiring. It's very early on, obviously, but "there's a mansion & everything so it's just like the first one except it's two years later" isn't very stirring.

I'm kind of hoping Angelique is the Queen now, and there's a new protagonist - much like the later Angelique games had.

That'd be interesting and at least a change. (I would guess that the promo image that cannot be seen ever alludes to them sticking with the existing Angelique, but who knows.) I have to say I'm kind of baffled & disappointed that the (admittedly very scant) information we have points to just "we're doing the same stuff again," particularly when the various endings of the first game bring things to a rather definite conclusion - Thanatos destroyed, Angelique (usually) queen (and sometimes off in a pocket universe). I would've thought that a more natural sequel would revolve around Angelique making a proper Holy Land and assembling her Guardians. Ah, who knows.
