Izayoi doesn’t have Install drive attacks like Tsubaki. She has a Reiori gauge that increases if she hits an enemy with a special attack or blocks. During an Overdrive, the Reiori gauge fills up automatically. Switch to Gain Art mode (right) and you can use her Drive to power up special attacks. Gain Art mode also boosts Izayoi’s speed, which makes her very effective in close range combat.

Here’s how Gain Art mode alters attacks. Izayoi can attack with Sonic Saber, a fast and direct projectile attack. Use the same attack in Gain Art mode and projectiles surround your opponent.

Izayoi’s Overdrive is Freedom Justice. Her Distortion Drive, Justice For Riser, is a fast strike with a long reach. She can also use an enhanced Distortion Drive that deals more damage and has longer reach.

    Oh thank gawd. Looks like her play style will suit me.


  • Don

    i sorta kinda don’t like izayoi’s design. it feels like its part of the concept design phase and out of place with the rest of the cast.. but that’s just me
    anyway maybe its just the colors and those horns (GN drives lol) on the floating booster things

    and hopefully when it hits console we get more characters!!

    • Foofin Around

      It kinda makes sense though. If I remember correctly, the Izayoi was supposed to be some kind of prototype for the Murakumo units. If that’s the case (and I could be wrong), then I think that the whole “concept design” makes sense due to the fact that she’s kind of a concept design for the Murakumo units.

      I like it, but I completely respect you opinion as well! And I would also love to see even more characters. (^_^)

      • Don

        yeah izayoi is the first of murakmos i think she’s numbered 00 from some of the trailer if i remember correctly..

        i get your point, yeah it does make sense in a way that she has that whole concept design feel going on and after seeing the the other color schemes posted by dantejones it seems that i won’t be bothered by it anymore..

        can’t wait till its out on consoles.. and i don’t mind buying it twice if it comes out on the VITA..

  • Mavalex

    Gain Art boosts her speed!? Dude, this stuff keeps getting more and more interesting. I’ll definitely attempt to learn some stuff using her.

  • DanteJones

    Here’s some of her color schemes:
    Dat Saber color!

    • DemonicX

      The color schemes in Chrono Phantasma are just amazing. I’ll most likely use the Saber scheme the most for Izayoi though and Kamina’s color scheme for Azrael.

      • Luna Kazemaru

        don’t worry you and everyone on net play will spam the saber color

      • DanteJones

        Azrael has a Kamina color? That’s awesome!

    • Go2hell66

      all black :3

    • Hidayat246

      look nice

    • cameron forsyth

      looks like DLC quality skins.

  • DemonicX

    Before I only thought that she greatly resembled Erza, but now, I’m starting to wonder if they based Izayoi’s design off of her.

  • Harold Demmings

    isnt there supposed to be one more character V.00? or did i few the murakumo unit trailer wrong at the end when it counts down and stops on .00 then says “and “izayoi?

  • cedx123

    lol if you say justice for riser it sounds like you are saying 0-Raiser from Gundam 00. Anyways great character looking forward to the console release.

  • anthony apduhan

    I wonder when’s the console release of this game with DLCs like Jubei 3 Mercuries (Kokonoe, Celica, Nine/Phantom) Kagura Mutsuki (mentioned by Tsubaki in Arcade Mode) etc.

  • jugun

    so many gundam ref.

  • FanboyKiller Returns

    no me gusta

  • sd28

    Izayoi eliminating the target

  • Izayoi, comes with an extra serving of whoop ass.

  • ThatAzure

    Izayoi is getting my attention now, partially due to her Saber pallet swap xD~ Can’t wait to get my hands on this game!~~! I wish Noel somehow could have a Black Rock Shooter pallet swap (I know it wouldn’t work since their outfits are completely different); that would combine my two favorite characters which would be awesome!~

  • Göran Isacson

    Ah, so her Drive is some kind of “general supermode”, rather than a specific ability. Souped up speed and moves… eh, it’s decent enough, I guess. I’m more fond of specific things like Carls puppet and Rachels wind.
