Anetto Futatabi (アネット・再び), commonly translated as Annet Again or Annet Returns, is a side scrolling beat-em-up developed and published by Wolf Team for the Sega Mega-CD. It is the final game in the Annet Myer and Earnest Evans series. The menus and game screens are in English, but the dialogue and ending credits are in Japanese.

Renovation Products was set to release the game overseas as Annet Again around May 1993[3], but cancelled the release for unknown reasons (probably due to the presumably poor quality of the original Japanese release).[4]

Story

Annet Myer

The story takes place two years after El Viento. After being rescued from certain sacrifice by Earnest Evans, Annet travels across Europe and encounters a group that wants a pendant in her possession. After being ambushed by them she escapes and begins a quest to protect the world from destruction.

Gameplay

Unlike the first two games in the series, which are 2D platform video games, this game is a belt-scrolling beat-'em-up that closely resembles the Golden Axe or Streets of Rage games. As with the other games, the story is told through cutscenes between levels.

Annet walks with Left and Right and moves in and out of the plane with Up and Down. She dashes by pressing twice in any direction. She jumps with C. She attacks using her Sword of Light (rather than bladed boomerangs) with B. After landing three successive hits on a target, she does a more powerful attack that knocks the opponent down. While dashing, she does a dashing kick with B, which also knocks opponents down, or a somersault with C. She attacks with a kick while jumping or with a spinning sword slash while somersaulting. She grabs opponents by walking into them; after grabbing them, she can attack them with her knee with B or throw them with B combined with a direction.

Annet has five magic levels, which are regulated by a power meter that regenerates automatically. Each time her power meter fills, she gains a higher, more powerful level of magic. She uses her magic with A, which attacks all enemies on screen. However, magic cannot be used against the bosses.

Her health is indicated by a bar at the top of the screen. When she loses all of her health, the game ends, but it can be continued from the beginning of the current stage. Her health is replenished by items and at the start of each stage.

Opening song lyrics

Free あなたは

風さえ つかむ 術を和ってる

Fly 飛ばして

心をもっと遠くへ

広い宇宙の中で 新たな生命

今も 誕生れていることでしょう きっと

すべてを 包みこむ 大地の

心昔きいたなら わかるはず

傷つけ 憎しみあうことは やめて

燃えるような 末来 その手に

アネット再び
