In a series of scans from Dengeki Magazine, an overview of the characters, battle systems and the game’s release date have been revealed.
The first set of scans reveal details around the gameplay systems that you will be getting to grips with in the game. The battles with the villain Trillion – who true to his name has one trillion (1,000,000,000,000) HP – take place with both sides taking their turns at the same time. Trillion’s aim is to break through defensive lines from the other side of the map, meaning that for you, the player, it is important to ensure that your defence is just as strong as your attacks! If that isn’t tough enough, Trillion has four different types of helper that will join him in battle – each with a different speciality, such as rushing players to break defence or attacking from long range!
Although Trillion is extremely powerful, you will have a few tricks up your own sleeve that should make battles a bit more evenly-balanced. Every move that Trillion is about to make is made known to you in advance, with info such as timing and attack range provided to you. You can also attack individual parts of Trillion’s armour and if you deal enough damage to that specific part you will temporarily disable it. This means that any moves that Trillion has at his disposable which rely on that body part will not be available, however Trillion’s armour will regenerate over time.
Another option available is the ability to flee the battlefield. This will allow you to keep your Demon Lords and continue to raise them, but the downside is that you will lose territory to Trillion. The more battles that you lose during the game will see Trillion gain more ground on you – with game over being when Trillion reaches the innermost sanctum of your territory. The more damage that you deal may see Trillion’s advance slow down, with any movement he does make detailed to you similarly to his attacks as mentioned above.
Time away from battle is also important, with the levelling up of the six female Demon Lords that protagonist Zeabolos has at his disposal essential! Raising these Demon Lords will see you earn Memory Points which can then be exchanged for HP and MP when you do head into battle. If you do get to a point where your Demon Lord is beat by Trillion you can sacrifice them by using a last ditch Dying Skill. The Dying Skill will be a culmination of the Demon’s remaining life force and memories that she has accumulated with the effects varying from dealing massive amounts of damage to permanently disabling some of Trillion’s skills. Using this Dying Skill will, however, finalise your Demon’s death – so the decision is whether you want to make that sacrifice or not! The Dengeki scans also show that the Demons will have allies in the form of Booster Devils that can accompany you in combat. These Booster Devils are soldiers that can be brought into battle yet their capabilities are as of yet unknown.
The magazine goes on to profile a few of the characters in the game. The aforementioned Trillion is described as an amalgamation of one trillion grudges. It is said that during the time of the first Demon King (protagonist Zeabolos is the third Demon King), Trillion posed a great threat to the world in which the game takes place. The sheer size of Trillion is said to come from the cores of the many worlds he has consumed.
Also profiled is Luushe (voiced by Ayane Sakura), who is one of the Demon Lords (pictured on page 115 of the above scan above the five other Demon Lords) that works with protagonist Zeabolos (she also happens to be his niece). Luushe is well educated and comes full of pride, yet with a selfish and know-it-all attitude. Luushe has looked down on Zeabolos since he lost to Trillion prior to his revival by Faust and she has the intention to claim the throne as her own. It is said that Luushe represents the Deadly Sin that is Pride.
The other five Demon Lords are pictured in the scan (just below Luushe) with details of their voice actors and a brief description which you can see below (in order from Left to Right);
- Revia (voiced by Asami Imai), Envy incarnate and Zeabolos’ childhood friend.
- Mamon (voiced by Saori Oonishi), Zeabolos’ younger cousin and representative of Greed.
- Phegor (voiced by Rui Tanabe), Zeabolos’ older sister and the epitome of Sloth.
- Ashumedia (voiced by Natsue Sasamoto): Zeabolos’ older cousin and the embodiment of Lust.
- Peruperu (voiced by Mai Fuchigami): Luushe’s younger sister and the stand-in for Gluttony.
