Game description: A deadly parasite known as Kalma threatens the world of Jade Cocoon 2. Set centuries after the first Jade Cocoon, the sequel puts you in the role of Kahu, a fledgling Cocoon Master. Kahu must enter four elementally themed forests in a mission to stop Kalma from overtaking the earth. Search for the four Orbs of Cocoon Masters while training captured monsters to aid you on your quest. You can even pit your army of fighters against a friend's best-bred creatures in battle mode.
Jade Cocoon 2's plot occurs 100 years after the events in the original Jade Cocoon. The time of the Nagi people and "cocoon masters" has passed. New "cocoon masters" are now cited as "beasthunters" and are the prominent force of monster raising, with the player playing one named Kahu who visits the Temple of Kemuel in the hopes of becoming a beasthunter and having adventures like the old cocoon masters he's idolized.
The japanese version is called Tamamayu Monogatari 2
