A sequel titled ''Rosenkreuzstilette Freudenstachel'' was released on October 20th, 2012, after years of [[DevelopmentHell setbacks]] and [[{{Vaporware}} delays]]. As should be expected from the title, this sequel features [[TheLancer Freudia Neuwahl]] as the protagonist. The story involves Freudia trying to rescue [[BadassInDistress Spiritia]], who has been taken captive by the Schwarzkreuz, a group of Black Magi led by Pamela Arwig that has begun witch-hunting Magi for the Empire and the Church in an effort to bring them to justice and "put down the Walpurgisnacht". The game can be purchased digitally [[http://www.dlsite.com/eng/work/=/product_id/RE102971.html here]] at [=DLsite=].

* AwesomeYetPractical: The Liebessturm is a decently powerful wind attack that fills the screen to quickly dispatch weak enemies and can be spammed over a dozen times. Coupled with the fact that Liebea herself is the easiest boss in the game, it's likely the first weapon the player will get.



* BadassInDestress: Freudia becomes the protagonist of the second game in place of Spiritia, [[spoiler:as she was captured by a group of Dark Magi]], not that she didn't try.

'''''Rosenkreuzstilette''''' (meaning "Rose Cross Stilettos", alternatively translated as "Blades of the Rose Cross" by the FanTranslation) is a {{doujin|Soft}} {{platform|Game}}er made by [erka:es] that is heavily inspired by the classic ''VideoGame/{{Mega Man|Classic}}'' series, with traces of the ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' and ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' series, with a bit of ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' and ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' thrown in for a good measure. The game is notable for having sufficiently good art and music to distinguish itself from other ''Mega Man'' clones, as well as toning down the NintendoHard difficulty typically associated with them. It also has a small, but growing English-speaking community. An English FanTranslation patch (primarily compatible with v1.05c) is available [[http://www.darksidetranslations.com/index.php?page=projects&project=rks here]]. Those wishing to purchase the game can buy the ''Rosenkreuzstilette -[erka:es] The Best-'' digital re-release [[http://www.dlsite.com/eng/work/=/product_id/RE051185.html here]] at [=DLsite=]'s work-safe English page.

** Some charged attacks of the special weapons are also impractical. Zornesbombe's charged attack in the first game for example spawns a bunch of bombs at once but eats away a lot of its energy in one shot.

* BottomlessMagazines: Averted, Freudia's ice gun Freudenstachel has a lot of energy, but will eventually run out like any secondary weapon even if it's her primary means of attack. This means unlike the first game and many Mega Man titles, you can't shoot ammo at everything in your way if you want to save weapon energy for the bosses.

* {{Castlevania}}: A major influence on the stage and art design, as well as music.

The only way out is to reset the game, which can be rage-inducing for anyone fighting her at [[spoiler:Iris]] Stage III.
