  • Summary: Izuna and her gang are back - and just in time for a wedding! Lured by the promise of free food (Why else would Izuna attend?), the festive event becomes a puzzling mystery when Izuna's sidekick Shino suddenly disappears, off in search of her long-lost sister. And making matters worse, the foreign gods have also arrived on Japanese soil, and they aren't very happy with the meddlesome, unemployed ninja. With disgruntled deities on the warpath, a sidekick to track down, and a missing sister out in the wild, it could all shape up to be one of Izuna's more exciting adventures. Sounds like a lot of work for a girl out of a job! [Atlus USA] Expand

  1. The dialogue is lighthearted and funny enough that newcomers to the genre might stick around and the difficulty of the quest is enough that already-made fans will enjoy it just as much as the previous one.

    It's a game of trade-offs and cautious play -- a challenge meant for hardcore RPG fanatics but amusing enough that newcomers might find it worthwhile, too.
  3. More of the same, several new additions, and more comedy than before.
  4. Classic dungeon crawling with great characters and humour. [Oct 2008, p.85]
  5. The nicest thing you can say about its difficulty is that Izuna 2 isn’t as diabolical as its compatriots, but its admirable art and writing could draw in new players.
  6. I’m not a fan of the presentation or the ridiculous grinding required for success.
  7. At least the game is humorous, with Izuna written as a died in the wool slacker.

    Call me crazy but I absolutely love this game! The characters, from Mitsumoto's desperation for a girl to Izuna's ditzy mishaps, are awesome! The difficulty and neccessity for resource management will keep players on their toes, and the use of original Japanese voice-actors (whose acting is top-notch by the way) adds alot of authenticty to the experience. I recommend Izuna 2 for dungeon crawling fanactics, or newcomers looking to get their feet wet! Expand

    really a fun game. the "grind" isnt all that bad as its made out to be. the challenge is there but it fades just a lil the more you get used to controls. both izuna and izuna 2 are really fun games. id encourage anyone to at least give them a good try at the least. i give it a ten because its one of my favorite titles on the ds period. this is a game i find myself going back to play over and over again and that means something to me. not a lot of games have that kind of staying power with me.
