  • Original names: シャドウ・ハーツⅡ (SLPS-25334)
  • Also known as Shadow Hearts II (JP), Shadow Hearts II: Director's Cut (JP)
  • The game has two possible endings. In the “bad” ending, Yuri's personality and memories are erased by Nicolai's curse, and he spends the rest of his life under the care of Roger Bacon, his old friend. In the “good” ending, Yuri chooses to die so that he doesn't lose his memories and personality to the curse. He then finds himself at the beginning of the previous game. In both endings, Karin travels back to 1887 and is revealed to be Anne, Yuri's mother.
  • There's a Director's Cut edition released in Japan only, with extra dungeons and new playable characters.
