5pb. Mages has announced it is working on a new visual novel called Kadenz fermata//Akkord:fortissimo for the PlayStation Vita. The game’s official website has given us an idea of how the game plays, as well as a teaser trailer being released for the title.
Revolving around main character Freiya, the story of Kadenz fermata//Akkord:fortissimo will see you take on the Magician using your wits and the different strategies offered by the game by making use of the ‘FF’ and EXS’ buttons when in combat.
When you are battling it out in the game there will be different ways for you to emerge victorious. The first one is called ‘FF’, which stands for Free Finish, which is a special attack that you can use at any point during combat. Although you can use FF’s at any time, it is advised to save them for the best possible scenario. There are a variety of special attacks that can be used, so the choice is yours when it comes to picking them.
The second ability is the ‘EXS’, which are similar to the Free Finishes. The main difference between ‘EXS’ and ‘FF’ are that the effects of the ‘EXS’ can differ depending on who you are fighting. An example of this is that you might be able to choose from three ‘sacred treasure’ types to alter and control the course of your battle if used correctly.
Last but not least is ‘FA’, better known as Full Access mode’ which lets you perform a super special attack. Full Access mode can only be activated by certain characters, but it does allow for you to snatch a huge victory when you are behind in battle.
Releasing in Japan this fall, keep your eyes on The Vita Lounge for updates on Kadenz fermata//Akkord:fortissimo as and when more information is revealed. For now though, check out the teaser trailer for the title below;
