Well I just beat Abyss, and I don't really know what the heck happen in the ending. I do know that Abyss doesn't seem to have any connection to the first game at all.
At the first the story was about the Demon Spear, but near the end of the game, that was just dropped, and never brought up again. Or maybe the Demon Spear was just a made up story to get people to go to the Tower?
Maybe most of the story was lost in translation? After it drops the Demon Spear plot, it then starts going on about being cursed, monsters constantly bring up that word, cursed. I'm guessing after killing the last boss, you saved that demon girl? As she shows up in the ending cutscene, but without horns, or any other of the demon stuff she had before(Well, other then that weird eyeball thing, whatever that was). Was that the whole point of the game? To save that random demon girl from the first game?
I know you don't really play dungeon crawlers for the stories, but I am just confused on the whole point of this game. It was a ton of fun to play though, and major improved over the first Shadow Tower.
I have a feeling that if the game did come to the US, and we had a manual, that would explain what the heck was going on, just like the manual did in the first game.
Any chance of translating the manual?
Oh, and I used this guide, it was really helpful. http://shadowtowerabyss.kings-field.com/
It covers all the areas expect for one, but since it's for the Japanese version, it leaves out some details.
Gonna go back and beat King's Field II again, then finally beat III and IV, since I never finished those two.
Wish that http://www.kings-field.com/#
had a guide for the second game. It has guides for I, III, and IV, but not II for some reason.
