RPG launches on PS4 in Japan this October
Compile Heart is currently cooking up a brand new RPG in the form of Varnir of the Dragon Star: Ecdysis of the Dragon, and the latest update includes an extensive trailer focused on the battle system. Check out the characters in action below, followed by an overview of the battles, which have players fighting while hovering on different layers.
Players will be able to freely move between the layers during battles, which plays into the overall strategy of the game. For instance, physical attacks will only work if you're on the same level as an enemy, but magic skills can target any layer.
Using the Devour Skills to devour dragons is a major feature. Attacking enemies raises their Fear Level, which makes it easier to devour the enemy and obtain their Skill Tree. On the other hand, as your characters receive damage, their Dragon Gauge rises. Once it's full, you'll be able to boost your power with a Dragon Awakening.
Varnir of the Dragon Star: Ecdysis of the Dragon hits PS4 in Japan on October 11.
