Introduced in Japan in 1998, the Shaman King property has become a phenomenal success with more than 20 million comic books and more than 165 million trading cards sold. The third video game in this multi-million dollar franchise, Shaman King: Mater of spirits 2 delivers an all-new exciting, action-packed RPG, where players continue their quest to become the next Shaman King.

The sequel to Shaman King: Master of spirits, players return to the role of Yoh Asakura as they traverse multiple stages filled with perils, enemies and traps in order to stop a diabolical shaman from resurrecting the evil “Guardian of Demons.” To assist Yoh in his quest, players can collect the spirits of vanquished opponents and use these spirits to help him in battle. Additionally, they can summon old and new Guardian Ghosts in the battle to defeat the enemies. As players progress, they will build their skills and unlock special moves, combo systems and abilities. Adding to the excitement, gamers can upgrade their spirits and use the enhanced spirit system to negotiate treacherous levels filled with traps!

Shaman King follows the story of Yoh Asakura, a junior high school student hiding an amazing secret. Yoh is a shaman, one of the few who can communicate with ghosts and spirits. Through his powers, Yoh can join forces with another spirit, uniting ghost and human together as one. Yoh teams up with Amidamaru, the spirit of the 600-year old samurai warrior, and with this powerful union, Yoh begins his quest to be crowned Shaman King in the grand tournament, held once every 500 years.
