Kujakuou 2: Geneijou (孔雀王2 幻影城) is the sequel to Kujakuou, developed and published by Sega in 1989 for the Sega Mega Drive. Just as Kujakuou was released overseas as SpellCaster, Kujakuou 2 was released overseas as Mystic Defender. In Korea it was named On Dal Jang Goon (온달장군) and some character graphics were changed.

Also as with Kujakuou, the main character (Kujaku) received a redesign and a new name for the overseas release.

Mystic Defender storyline

Zareth, the henchman of the evil king Zao, kidnaps the Supreme Deity's daughter to use her power to resurrect Zao. You are Joe Yamato, a magician and warrior who goes out to save her and stop Zareth.


C jumps. By default, B fires a magic ball; hold down to charge a ball. Throughout the course of the game, you collect new spells; A changes spells and B uses them, complete with charging ability (some such as the flamethrower require charging).
