The Demon Crystal II: Knither

Following the re-release of the original The Demon Crystal, Regista will release sequel The Demon Crystal II: Knither for Switch via the Nintendo eShop in 2019 in Japan, the developer announced.

Here is an overview of the 1986-released, YMCAT-developed side-scrolling action RPG, via Moby Games:

Knither is the sequel to Demon Crystal. The gameplay is similar—collect keys to open locked areas, find the big key and then the exit, only now you also have to collect three passwords per world, otherwise you cannot advance to the next world. In addition to the fire ball, there’s also thunder sword, wave of fire, cracker and spark flash, which kills all enemies on screen. The game features 5 worlds with 10 stages each, plus the last stage where you battle the witch, for a total of 51 stages.
