No Technique Points? No Problem In Keroro RPG

By Spencer . March 4, 2010 . 3:58pm

imageLike Tales of Hearts before it, Keroro RPG: The Knight, Warrior, and Legendary Pirate drops technique points, a staple in most Tales games.

 

A chain capacity meter replaces the TP stat. See the number 5 in the screenshot? That’s the CC meter. It drops after each attack, a point for a basic hit or three if you do a special move like Gengetsuga where Keroro temporarily transforms into a samurai.

 

Each attack fills up the blazing rise meter, the blue bar underneath the HP meter. When the BR meter is full you can press L and activate a mode where you can attack relentlessly without worrying about your CC meter.

 

I tried a demo of Keroro RPG’s system and aside from the lack of TP it feels just like a Tales game. Seeing Keroro leap into the air for a multi-hit spinning sword slash called F-hornet is pretty amusing too. This frog can fight. You can switch to Keroro’s allies by opening the menu and pressing L to change characters. Kululu acts like a magic user armed with cure spells and magic missiles which he can fire out of a DS-like device.

    I think CC used in ToD remake?

      Yes, Team Destiny games (Destiny PS2, Hearts, and Graces) all use Chain Capacity.

      This is the first game not from them to do so.

      Japan’s Nintendo Channel. It’s been up for a few days now.

    Hell yes, CC system. It is superior to TP, imo.

    I’m angry that I won’t ever be able to play this for two reasons:

    1. I can’t read.
    2. I’ve never played a Tales game.

    How does the CC meter recharge? Are you limited to just 5 basic attacks or 2 basic attacks and 1 special move per battle?

    I guess “blazing rise” is a replacement for “overlimit”, does it also negate the temporary stun effect each time you get hit?
