Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals, the sequel to Lufia & the Fortress of Doom, brings back the greedy Sinistrals and their unquenchable thirst for power. Arek, the leader of the Sinistrals, has access to the Dual Blade, a sword of unprecedented power. With the magical sword in his possession and a gang of elemental monsters on his side, Arek is confident his people will conquer the gentle folks of Lufia and take their land. Luckily, Maxim the monster hunter and seven other warriors (each with his or her own type of weapon and skill) sympathetic to the Lufian cause are ready and willing to thwart the Sinistrals and once again bring peace to Lufia.
Your job is to guide Maxim and his fellow adventurers through this massive quest. During your journey you will battle monsters, cast spells, converse with townsfolk, bomb castle walls, find treasure, solve puzzles, search for and purchase special items, play casino games, and commandeer vehicles such as a boat, a submarine, and a blimp. To help you in your quest, you can find capsule monsters hidden in treasure chests.These creatures fight alongside your pals, helping you ward off your enemies, but you cannot control them. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
