"Before Tears to Tiara II: Heir of the Overlord was announced for Western release, the Tears to Tiara name was likely known to only a few niche circles. Originally an SRPG eroge on the PC in 2002, Tears to Tiara was never officially released in English, even when an all-ages version was released years later for the PS3.
In fact, outside of an anime adaptation for the first game and guest appearances in Aquapazza, both of which have been released in the West, many people will be uncertain about picking up Tears to Tiara II. You can rest easy however, as not only does this game tell a separate story, the story it has to tell is a massive one."
