You can check it out below.
We also learn more about the battle system in Kickstarter updatenamely the mechanisms underlying the specific ARM processing in each character.
When a character is equipped with ARM, they gain access to the following skills.
- Command Skills – Active skills that the player can select during the battle.
- Reactive Skills – Passive skills that are automatically activated under certain conditions.
- Support Skills – Passive skills that increase a character’s stats and make them more powerful.
There are six types of arms and each type has an associated party role. Here are some examples:
- Gun ARMs put characters into a role that takes action quickly and can attack multiple enemies.
- Spear ARMs put the characters in a role characterized by high attack, high defense and the ability to take a lot of physical damage.
- Corner ARMs put characters in a role that allows them to attack enemies with item magic.
The ability to change roles by switching ARM is a “role change system”.
Initially, characters can only use ARM of the type they are accustomed to, but when you reach level 30, you can add a second ARM type. They will gain another level every 10 more levels. The player decides the order in which they are opened.
Then we hear about Cross-Link. Only 3 characters can actively participate in the battle, and they are in the first row. The rest of the characters are in the back row. They provide support but do not appear on the battlefield.
You can create Cross-Link by linking a character in the front row to a partner in the back row.
When it’s your turn, you can switch the interlocking letters from the front row to the back row. Back Row Supporters can use reaction skills to assist when activation conditions are met. They can also be chained.
Furthermore, the characters in the front row gain the support skill of the associated character in the back row. If they have the same support skills, they really stack.
Below you can also see the art of heroes with different ARM weapons.
