Another great title that feels like Megaman.

Looking for a new game that plays like the classic titles of the Blue Bomber? Well look no further, because the sequel to [erka:es]'s Rosenkreuzstilette has been available since October 20th, 2012 -- just in time for the holidays. Fans of Megaman-like games can look forward to new elements that will make Rosenkreuzstilette Freudenstachel a nice new experience.

To those who haven't heard of Rosenkreuz, the main thing that sets RKS (Short for Rosenkreuzstilette) apart from Megaman is that RKS has you play as a Magi that must take down eight other Magis before advancing to the main adversary's lair. It also feels like a Touhou game, since the main bosses tend to get crazy with their attack patterns. You can also look forward to many game references from classic titles such as Castlevania, Bomberman, and ActRaiser

One new element present in RKSF is that you play as Freudia, who was one of the main bosses in the first game. While the first game had you play as Spiritia, a Magi that plays like Megaman from Megaman 4 and up, Freudia retains her ice abilities from when she was a boss. However, the player will have to earn her skills by defeating the other Magis. 

You can purchase RKSF at DLsite for US $17.19. And don't let the name fool you, since DLsite is a legit Website where you can purchase digital doujin stuff; however, their products are still in Japanese. For those who would like to check out Spiritia's adventure, you can buy the first RKS for US $15.34 at the same Website. The best part about both links is that they give you the link to download the demo for both games as well.

And before you let the icy winds get to you, check out the screenshots for RKSF in the gallery after the jump.
