The accompanying press release also included official descriptions for all the new characters and gameplay features, alongside new images.
VA: Sora Amamiya
A nun of the Transcendent Dragon Church, which worships the Holy Dragon, and the sixth royal candidate of the Kingdom of Lugunica.
Polite, respectful, and humble, those who encounter her tend to be stricken with a desire to protect her.
She takes on any challenge with her utmost effort, but she can be a bit of an airhead and often makes careless blunders.
VA: Toshiyuki Toyonaga
Melty’s Civil Official Sent by the Transcendent Dragon Church
VA: Aya Hirano
VA: Shunsuke Takeuchi
VA: Kaede Hondo
Mysterious Assassin Targeting the Royal Candidates
VA: Hiroki Takahashi
A tactical adventure utilizing Subaru’s “Return by Death” ability, a key element much like in the original works.
Progress through the story mainly through conversations.
The smooth character animations and fully voiced dialogue brings the story to life.
Take control of Subaru to speak with characters, check out points on the map, and gather items and information. Obtaining useful items and intel is key to completing missions successfully.
Devise plans with allies to decide how to proceed through upcoming missions. Subaru can propose opinions based on any items and information that have been gathered to affect the actions of his allies.
Take action to resolve conflicts standing in the way of Subaru and his friends. Players can only control Subaru, and his allies move independently based on the decisions made during Briefings.
Incidentally, we learn that the English voice cast will return to reprise their roles in the game. English voice-overs will be available as a day one patch for the North American and European version.
