Game description: Experience an epic action/RPG adventure that relies on your innovation as much as exploration and fighting reflexes. In Dark Cloud 2, the sequel to Dark Cloud, you must fight your way through an array of unexplored lands, rebuild worlds with the enhanced Georama and tinker with the new Invention system to completely customize your adventure. Battle through monster-ridden dungeons with two different characters, each with multiple attack forms, special abilities and upgradeable weaponry. Rebuild the present world as well as the future.

Artifacting on text
- Status: Active
- Type: Minor
- Description: The in-game HUD, inventory screen, and text have various extra pixels and black lines, around the edges, it is even apparent in Software mode. Effects worsen if Texture Filtering is set to "Forced".
- Workaround: Go to Config > Video (GS) > Plugin Settings, click Enable HW Hacks, go to Configure Hacks and enable the "Wild Arms Offset" hack. This fixes most of the issues but causes water and lava textures to stutter and loading bars to break.
