PLAYISM is proud to announce that the new demo for Phantom Rose 2 Sapphire is now live on Steam Next Fest! This will be the first time players can get to experience the all-new “Mage” class that wasn’t present in the previous game. This demo will only be available for the duration of Steam Next Fest (Oct 9, 10 am – Oct 16, 10 am PT), simply download the demo via the store page to get a hands-on experience of what to expect in the full game!

Phantom Rose 2 is the deckbuilding roguelike by solo indie developer and artist makaroll that will be released on Steam on October 30, 2023.

Phantom Rose 2 Sapphire is the long-awaited sequel to the popular Phantom Rose Scarlet. Just like its predecessor, Phantom Rose 2 adopts the unique draw-less card mechanic and instead relies on careful management of your deck’s cooldown in battle.

Take on the role of Aria, our new protagonist, and help her escape the phantom-infested Marion Magic Academy while trying to regain her lost memories.


Two Classes, Each with Unique Properties

In Phantom Rose 2, players get to choose between the Blade Class and the all-new Mage Class. The Blade Class offers more straightforward gameplay, while the Mage Class introduces an added mechanic called “Arcana” for an added layer of strategic gameplay.

“Arcana” is a resource specific to the Mage Class that reduces as you play attack cards and replenishes when you play certain cards. Playing this class requires you to outmaneuver your opponent while maintaining a balance between offense and defense.

With each class also coming with its own unique set of cards, you will have to adapt your strategy according to your chosen class and deck for each playthrough.

  • 2 playable classes (Blade and Mage), each with their own unique sets of cards and mechanics
  • Multiple modes: Adventure, Arcade, Custom
