The Legend of Sword and Fairy 2 (simplified Chinese: 仙剑奇侠传二Template:; traditional Chinese: 仙劍奇俠傳二Template:; pinyin: Xiān Jiàn Qí Xiá Zhuàn Èr) is an action role-playing game developed by Taiwan's Softstar Entertainment, and a sequel to The Legend of Sword and Fairy. Set in ancient China, the game is based on the Wuxia genre with elements of fantasy.
The story is set eight years later after the ending of the first game. Wang Xiaohu, a boy from the same hometown as Li Xiaoyao (protagonist of the first game), has reached the age of eighteen. When he was still a child, he was impressed by the story of how Li braved danger to seek a cure for his ill aunt, and has since looked up to Li as an idol. Although Wang did not have an opportunity to learn from Li, he still hopes to become a great Jianghu hero one day. Wang inherits his master's priced weapon, the Demon Blade, and sets off on his own adventure. He meets the other three female protagonists; Li Yiru, Su Mei and Shen Qishuang. Li is the daughter of Li Xiaoyao and Zhao Ling'er; Su (appeared as a nameless baby fox in the first game) is the daughter of a serpent demon and a vixen demon, and she vows to avenge her parents, who were killed by Li Xiaoyao and Lin Yueru; Shen is a new character who has no apparent connections with the first game.
In the meantime, China is in a state of chaos, as demons have been roaming the land unchecked ever since the Demon Prison Tower collapsed in the first game. A monk called Master Qianye appears and recruits disciples to form a sect known as the Great Merciful Sect to counter the threat and save the common people. This sect, along with the Mount Shu Sect (now led by Li Xiaoyao), are seen as the pillars of righteousness in the Jianghu. On the other hand, Kong Lin, an assistant of the Lord of Demons, seeks to retrieve three treasures and put them together, in order to resurrect the Lord and allow demons to dominate the world.
The four protagonist set foot into the dangerous world of the Jianghu, where they will discover secrets of their past, understand the meaning of forgiveness and love, and join in the battle between good and evil.
