Daikoukai Jidai II (大航海時代II) is the sequel to Koei's simulation game Daikoukai Jidai, both a part of their Rékoeition Series. It was first released in 1993 on various Japanese computers before being ported to a variety of other systems, including to the Sega Mega Drive (1994; US/JP) and Sega Saturn (1997; JP). Western releases called the game New Horizons.

For whatever reason the Japanese Saturn release was given "Rékoeition" as the genre.
