Unchained Blades Exxiv Switches From Dungeon Crawler To Monster Duels

By Spencer . November 2, 2012 . 2:14am

Unchained Blades Exxiv from FuRyu is a first person dungeon crawler with a turn based battle system. Most of the time the game looks like this…

… until you get to a Judgment Battle. Players have to clear these monster duels to move the story forward. If you can’t win a duel you can train more followers and try again. Unchained Blades Exxiv’s monster duels have a different battle system. Followers clump around Ryuga and you use them to block or attack. When your followers clash you can mash a button to deal heavy damage.

    I hope they change the monsters sounds during Judgment Battles.
    Maybe it was part of the localization, but on the previous game they sounded like animals getting beated. ;___;

    Hm…That sounds a little bit more interactive and less dependent on luck. But we shall see…
