The Sword of Hope II,[1] known in Japan as Selection II: Ankoku no Fuuin (セレクションII 暗黒の封印?), is a 1992 role-playing video game developed and published by Kemco for the Game Boy.

It is the sequel to the 1989 The Sword of Hope. In 1998, these two games were rereleased in Japan as a single Game Boy cartridge, Selection I & II. The Sword of Hope II was released for the 3DS Virtual Console in 2012.

A "dungeon crawler"-type game, the player must retrieve the Sword of Hope, which has been stolen, and find the evil Zakdos who has been set free after being imprisoned.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Packaging refers to the game as "Sword of Hope II". The 3DS Virtual Console release is going by the game itself and so ignores this.
