It was also released as Axe of Rage in North America.
The developer of the two Barbarian games, Palace Software, repeated for Barbarian II the same marketing strategy they used for its predecessor. They hired Maria Whittaker, a model known for her topless work, to pose on the cover and posters as the princess in the game, attempting to recapture the controversy that had boosted sales for the first Barbarian game.
When Barbarian II was released, Palace Software went ahead with plans for Barbarian III. For two years, the game was publicised in gaming magazines.
