King’s Field II Cheats & Cheat Codes for PlayStation

These days FromSoftware is undoubtedly one of the most recognizable names in the video game industry. The studio’s iconic Dark Souls franchise contains some of the most beloved RPGs on the market. 2022’s Elden Ring earned FromSoft massive acclaim as well. Last year saw the company’s strong reputation continue with the critically acclaimed mech adventure Armored Core 6. But FromSoft wasn’t always such a household name. RPGs have always been a core part of the company’s identity. However, Dark Souls and its ilk wouldn’t arrive until relatively late in the company’s history. Before all of the most famous FromSoft titles, there was the King’s Field franchise, and, for fans outside of Japan, there was King’s Field II.

Like its predecessor, King’s Field II is a first-person action RPG. Your character traverses a fully 3D environment, slaying monsters and collecting items and weapons while he explores dungeons. While the style is quite dated nowadays, it was richly acclaimed when the game first debuted. Nowadays, King’s Field II has a cult classic status that keeps it prominent even when compared to FromSoft’s modern successes.

While the 1995 game is officially a sequel to the previous year’s King’s Field, which was FromSoft’s first game, it was still many fans’ first exposure to the franchise. King’s Field II was the first FromSoft game to launch internationally. To that end, it launched in the United States as simply King’s Field. Like the Dark Souls trilogy today, however, the games mostly stand on their own. Even though they’re technically connected, American fans in the ’90s weren’t missing too much when they dove into King’s Field II.

The plot of the game follows a prince named Aleph, who journeys to the island of Melanat. He quests to recover the Moonlight Sword, a holy relic sacred to the kingdom of Verdite. This sword should be abundantly familiar to FromSoft fans of all ages. The iconic weapon has appeared in some form in almost every main FromSoftware game to date. Every title in the Dark Souls trilogy has featured this weapon, as has Bloodborne and Elden Ring. Even the sci-fi mech franchise Armored Core features a laser blade with the designation MOONBLADE, an undoubtedly more genre-appropriate callback to the legendary weapon.

Unfortunately, there are no official cheat codes to be found in King’s Field II.

Using an accessory like the Game Genie, you can increase your stats or unlock key items. If you’re lucky enough to have one of these accessories today, you can find lists of cheats online.
