Today Idea Factory International released a batch of screenshots and details of the upcoming JRPG Dragon Star Varnir.
First of all, we get more information about a few systems that will be included in the game.
Those are Huntery, Field Exploration, and Mixing Elixirs.
- Huntery – Here, players can find multiple quests to choose from. Fulfill the conditions for each quest to receive a reward. The Huntery allows players to access items, such as the Books of Formation. These special items allow players to put their characters into different battle formations to receive additional stat boosts during battles. But read the descriptions carefully! Some stat boosts come at the cost of decreasing others.
- Field Exploration – As you explore the dungeons of Varneria, you will encounter various gimmicks including, treasure chests, blocked paths, and enemies. Use character-specific Special Magic to break through obstacles and ignite special effects! During field exploration, players will also be able to fly on their brooms for faster travel!
- Mixing Elixirs: An Elixir a valuable tool for players to access rare items unobtainable in dungeons! To create an elixir, head to the Witches’ Workshop and mix various dungeon-found items such as claws, skin, and bones, as well as a catalyst. The catalyst you choose can change the equipment type and rarity of the drop! Once the elixir is made, choose a character to drink the elixir that will summon a special dragon. Defeat it to gain rare items! If you fail to defeat the dragon, your elixir will not disappear, so you are free to challenge the special dragon as many times as needed.
On top of that, we also get an introduction to four characters that will oppose our heroes.
A natural-born warrior. She is devoted to the Empire and is the commander of the Knights of Requiem. As calculated as she is cruel, she finds pleasure in the torture of witches.
Character Design: Katsuyuuki Hirano (Moero Chronicle and Agarest series)
The leader of the dragon hunters known as the Ravens. They use a “Sorcery Device” that uses the dragon’s magic to manipulate a powerful flame. Her right eye is made of ruby hence her name, “Ruby Eye”. No one knows her real name.
Character Design: Kei Nanameda (Death end re;Quest and Mary Skelter)
A worshiper of the holy god Varnir and the ruler of the world. He rarely makes an appearance in public and exercises rule of the kingdom through Sehrud and Corberia.
A cardinal of the Holy Empire and a close aide to the Holy Emporer. He is level-headed and sharp as he handles the day-to-day business of the Empire.
Dragon Star Varnir will release on June 11 in North America and June 14 in Europe exclusively for PS4.
