zone of the enders 2nd runner


Art and Video Games: Kazuma Kaneko

Kazuma Kaneko is an artist acclaimed to fame for his contributions to Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner and Devil May Cry 3, but his most known contributions come from the Megami Tensei series.  His illustrations are equally attractive and eerie; Kaneko’s demons are often an interesting interpretation of mythologies and religions, while the humans are pale and contemplative.  Kaneko’s style is a strange mixture of the vivid and the melancholy.

Of all the changes made in Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner, the most significant to play is the ability to attack multiple enemies at once. In addition to allowing for much larger swarms of enemies and enemy types, this also gives the player a larger number of tactical strategies to employ against their foes, whether that is getting up close and personal with a single enemy, keeping their distance and thinning the ranks, or even diving in and out of a crowd to dispel key targets as is possible.
