The game’s intuitive battle system is on full display in this latest trailer, complete with detailed descriptions and action-packed sequences that show off the fiery fury of the game’s femme fighters.
After selecting a main character, players will duke it out while charging up the abilities of their two chosen Partners, who – once called into the fight – will contribute with battle damage and various other effects. As the combatants exchange blows, their Power Gauge builds at the bottom of the screen. Filling this gauge meter by meter, up to a maximum of three, the players will then gain access to devastating abilities, including character-specific super moves and a massively powerful “Lethal Blaze” attack that deals incredible damage but costs all three meters.
The trailer also details the game’s innovative “Blast” system, which provides players with the option to use one of three special tide-turning maneuvers once per round, such as creating distance between the player character and her opponent, breaking an opponent’s combo, and extending a player’s combo beyond normal limits. Additionally, a player’s health and meters both begin regenerating once the Blast state has been activated.
As a way to thank early adopters and patient fans, XSEED Games will be offering the game’s two DLC characters Homura (from the SENRAN KAGURA series) and Aino Heart (from the Arcana Heart series) free of charge on the PlayStation®Store for the first four weeks following their respective release dates. Starting March 1, Homura and Aino Heart will be available for $5.99 each or as a bundle for $9.99.
