This game seems to be some sort of wacky Tales cross-over thing, with original characters in an original world interacting with characters from other Tales titles - Mint from Tales of Phantasia helps you out in the beginning at least. Dungeons are randomly generated, and battles are actually fought in a system similar to Eternia unlike the original Narikiri Dungeon which was strictly turn-based. The two main characters (maybe more) also get costumes to wear, which change your abilities accordingly (like the boy has his swordsman costume, and his archer costume). I’ll be damned if I can figure out how to wear them though.
Oh, and man oh man is the intro long. It’s one of those “you are required to speak with everyone in town before leaving town” kind of intros, Startropics-style. What is it with GBA games and excessive intros?
Released in 2002, this handheld escort title places you in the shoes of the orphans Julio Sven and Caro Orange. The Goddesses of their Great Tree have summoned the Tales heroes from Phantasia, Destiny, and Eternia to combat an ancient threat involving the fate of the very world, but even their combined strength isn’t enough. Only the pure hearts of teenagers with attitude can save the day, bestowed with the mightiest divine power known to man–the power of Roleplaying.
Partial English patch covering menus, the main story, and many events. See readme for detailed notes.
v2.30 – Backport of features from ND3 back to ND2. - Added extra capabilities in battle: Mystic Arte input, invulnerability arte input, Spell Cancel, Battle Mode selector, Moon Selector. (See Notes for details.) (Additionally, Farah’s Falling Leaf is usable via this, despite it not being on her arte list proper, nor it giving iframes.) - Cleaned up battle HUD. Added auto-run during dungeon exploration. (Hold B to walk, rather than hold B to run as before.) Added more message speed options. Added to the battle debug menu the ability to modify the character in the 4th slot. Cleaned up miscellaneous text issues. More translated skits in English courtesy Mr. Peese!
