Information for the following ROM(s): valis2j
|Valis II was released on June 23, 1989 in Japan for 6780 Yen.|
This PC Engine version of Valis II is probably the weakest of them all. The game was first released for the MSX, the Sharp X68000 and NEC PC-8800 in 1989. Although it was supposed to feature enhanced graphics and cinematics, the PC Engine version cutscenes (displayed inside small sub-windows) don't come anywhere near the ones featured in the excellent Sharp X68000 game. The levels and gameplay are also totally different and the Sharp X68000 (and MSX) features an armor and weapon upgrade system. It also seems that the computer and console versions of Valis II slightly differ in term of story.
