Survey Info #2: We have reached the $7M stretch goal! & ｢Toy Capsule Box Set｣ is now available.
With the combined Kickstarter and Slacker Backer campaigns, we have reached the $7M stretch goal! Having reached this goal, the Battle System Expanded: AI Battling will be included! Thank you so much for your support!!
Battle System Expanded: AI Battling
This control system lets you automatically unleash the perfect technique in response to the opponent's positioning and distance. R&D for this system is based on Yu Suzuki's concept for players who are not used to fighting games or for those who want a full immersion battle experience. This battle system is highly compatible with, and will be an extension to the current battle system.
And please make sure to get your survey in! Thank you!!
