In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST™ 2: Curse of the Crimson Elixir is the fast-paced, action RPG prequel to FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST™ and the Broken Angel. The second installment to the FULLMETAL series brings an enhanced battle system, cell-shaded graphics, thirty minutes of original animation, and an enthralling story. Based on a wildly popular Japanese animation and comic of the same name, FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST 2 follows the continuing journey of two
brothers on their life-changing quest.

The story begins in Lior, the desert city that the Elric brothers, Edward and Alphonse encounter in the first episode of the anime series. Just as the brothers are unveiling the secrets of a cult called Leto, they engage in a battle with creatures from the unknown. Immediately after this, they encounter a mysterious woman who hands the brothers a ring and then disappears without a trace.

A frightening phenomenon is apparently sweeping the country; people in many regions are simply vanishing. In Resembool, the brothers come face to face with an extremely talented alchemist. It seems that he has some kind of connection with the vanishings and the strange creatures that have been sighted.

Colonel Mustang sends the brothers to a village to investigate these monsters, where they meet another interesting man, an archaeologist named Arlen who is studying the ancient civilization of Lebis. Now, the brothers must venture to Siam-Sid, the ruins of the capital city of Lebis, to discover the truth about the mysterious vanishings and monstrous creatures.

Keeping with the spirit of the anime series, players will take on a fast-paced action adventure with a compelling original storyline that complements the anime saga.

Key features include;

  • Thirty minutes of original animation created exclusively for the game
  • Fully voiced event and movie sequences featuring actors from the top-rated anime series
  • Cameo appearances by the anime’s fan favorites
  • Features the hit song “Ready Steady Go" by L'Arc-en-Ciel
  • Greatly improved modeling and animation bring Ed and Al to life like never before
  • Cel-shaded graphics enhance the Elric Brothers’ adventure with stunning visuals
  • Transmutable weapons from the previous title return, plus an arsenal of new weapons and items
  • Brand-new alchemy attacks and a customizable combo system make for improved gameplay
  • Enhanced artificial intelligence allows Alphonse to automatically adjust to the situation and attack accordingly
