Games on the LINE messaging platform generally tend towards the cutesy and simplistic; however, the company hopes to expand its audience with their upcoming mobile 3D action RPG Revenant Gate.
A new trailer shows off the various weapon types, skills and the guard mechanic in the game. Gameplay looks easy to control with an onscreen D-pad. Spell skills are activated with a button press and come in limited quantities while out fighting. It looks like these spells will also have a cooldown.
There is a little bit of depth behind the 3D game though, as dodge rolling and parrying will require precise timing to complete. Parrying successfully gives you a counterattack opportunity. If you hit foes from behind, it’ll be considered a backstab.
As you progress through the game, you’ll be able to upgrade gear and slowly enhance your character. Fights are mission-based, with you wandering through a map killing foes. There are also environmental hazards like explosive barrels. Who leaves this stuff just lying around anyway?!

Revenant Gate is expected for iOS and Android and pre-registration is open on the official site.
