Introduction of New Systems

  • Each character can strengthen his/her unique ability for a specific period of time.
  • When [Overdrive] is triggered, the Overdrive icon changes into a purple gauge.
  • This gauge will decrease over time, and [Overdrive] will end when the gauge depletes.
  • [Overdrive] lasts longer if your character’s health is low. During activation, the round timer also stops.
  • After [Overdrive] has ended, the Overdrive icon will show a number counter. Overdrive can be used again when the number reaches 10.
  • The number increases over time or damage taken, but during [Active Flow], it charges much faster.

[Exceed Accel]
  • A powerful attack that can be used during [Overdrive] state.
  • [Overdrive] state immediately ends upon usage.
  • When activated during [Active Flow], the damage and effects are significantly boosted.

[Active Flow]

  • Enhances the attack power and shortens the [Overdrive] cool time etc. to make fighting conditions more favorable.
