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, but cancelled the release for unknown reasons (probably due to the presumably poor quality of the original Japanese release). It was shown in EGM #47.
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.
Unlike Earnest Evans and El Viento, games of the same series before it, this is not a side scrolling action game. Instead, it is a side-scrolling beat-em-up which is similar to Golden Axe or Streets of Rage. As with the other games, the story is told through cutscenes between levels.
Magic has five levels that is regulated by a automatically regenerating power meter. The higher the magic power meter is the stronger her magical attacks become. From beginning to end the levels are arranged in wind, earth, water, fire, and lastly death. Unfortunately, her magical attacks cannot be used against bosses. Annettes standard weapon is a sword, rather than the usual bladed boomerangs. Health restoration power-ups can be found throughout the levels.
Opening song lyrics
風さえ つかむ 術を和ってる
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
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
