(The opportunity to have one of our favorite bands write a song and include their alter egos in-game has been a wonderful experience. It also signifies how great music and amazing games can fit together to deliver an even more enjoyable experience to gamers.)

(The members of Blind Guardian and their US record label, Nuclear Blast, have been extremely easy to work with,) indicated Mario Kroll, Director of Marketing and Public Relations for cdv Software Entertainment USA. “To have musicians of this caliber and popularity not only help and create, but also promote Sacred 2: Fallen Angel is something we’re incredibly excited about.”
