Today Kadokawa Games released new assets and information of its upcoming Metal Max Xeno remake Metal Max Xeno Reborn.
We the screenshots focus on the new looks of the main cast and on the new character progression system.
There are five basic skill trees and then each character has their own specific variation in certain trees.
This affords players with freedom in how to grow the characters while retaining their unique flavor.
We get to take a look at Talis, Yokky, Toni, Dylan, Maria, Misaki, and Ittica.
Talis is mostly based on the DRIVE skill tree, but can also draw skill from the unique NEPH TECH skill tree that no other character has access to.
Yokky has unique skills in the REPAIR tree, while Toni has additional skills in the SURVIVE tree to help both her and her companions live longer.
Dylan and Maria, and Ittica are powerful warriors, so they have their personal skills in the MILITIA skill tree.
Misaki’s unique skills are in the MEDICAL tree, while Ittica is special as fulfilling certain conditions let her imitate and unlock other characters’ unique abilities.
