Kamen Rider 3DS Game Borrows Elements From Tales Battle System

By Eugene . September 15, 2013 . 2:00pm

In the latest reveal for upcoming side-scrolling action-adventure game Kamen Rider: Travelers Record, developers 7th Chord showed off how Travelers Record will implement some elements of the Linear Motion Battle System, seen in the Tales series of games.

 

  

Fights in Travelers Record will be fought on a 2D-plane with 3D backgrounds, with up to three Masked Riders and allowing for free movement over and around foes. Dubbed Linear Motion Battle, it allows players to plan tactical maneuvers such as pincer attacks, or stringing skills along to create massive chain combos. Each Rider’s flashy special moves can also be unleashed. 7th Chord has some experience with the system, having worked on Tales of Hearts R earlier this year.

 

Players will utilize Kamen Rider Fourze’s belt system on the Nintendo 3DS touch screen to transform into the various Kamen Riders for battle. Two different versions of transformations were noted – Form Change and Style Change – which will let players swap between the various Masked Rider transformations.

 

The story combines most of the Heisei Period’s various shows into one major locale, allowing players to visit locations such as Amanogawa High School from the Fourze series or Omokagedo antique shop from the Wizard series.

 

   

 

 

First-print run copies of the game will also come with two special Kamen Rider: Gaim cards for the arcade Kamen Rider game as well.

 

Kamen Rider: Travelers Record will be out in Japan on the Nintendo 3DS November 28

    Now that i remember, a couple of years ago, Namco Bandai did something similar by making a Tales RPG spin-off with the Keroro Gunso franchise.

      7th Chord did that game as well IIRC.

  • Sentsuizan_93

    Tales of Kamen Rider Versus, anyone? :P

    • Guest

      it is developed by 7th chord, the same developers of Tales of innocence R and Tales of hearts R for the vita

  • PotatoPower

    omg those sprites look awesome! :O

  • Will Jay

    Aww shit, Tales of Rider. Definite import for me.

  • Nitraion

    This looks more promising although it seems lack of playable characters…

    I smell an op rainfall campaign. ^_^

    I wonder if they’ll use Mother-esque items to recover. Hamburguers and Pizza,you know.

    Linear motion battle systems are really cool as well…really like the Tales series.

    Modern setting RPG is kinda rare,and,again,I wont be able to play it ):

    …anger-level overload!
    More 3DS games that support furigana— and yet, region-lock. Utterly infuriating.

    But this looks pretty rad. I know nothing about the Kamen series but imported Battride for PS3; had a really great time with it. Seems like an downright quirky series.

      I agree the region lock is bullshit. But since it seems like you’re studying Japanese, why don’t you just get a Japanese 3DS and only play Japanese games? That’s what I did.

    Woah, those out of suit portraits and sprites look a bit funky.
    It says that players use the forze belt on the touch screen to transform into different riders, but the screen shot is OOO’s belt. Do you use different belts for each rider, or was the mention of Forze’s belt just a mistake?

    The game needs Tales of cameos.
