FuRyu have revealed two new characters for Crystar today, as well as the “Thought Equipment” system. [Thanks, 4Gamer!]
Kuon (CV: Reina Kondo)
A girl who looks identical to Rei, and watches over and protects her. She’s collecting special recrystallized “Ideas” called “Aletheia” for its power.
Yuri Minano (CV: Aimi Tanaka)
Rei’s former friend, who passed away. She died in the same accident as Sen Megumiwa. For the first time since her death, she meets Rei again in the other world…
Thought Equipment is made by materializing one’s thoughts. They’re basically equipment, and come in Attack, Defense, and Support types. By purifying enemies, you can get them, and they can also be upgraded or have additional effects added to them.
Crystar releases in Japan on October 18, 2018 for PlayStation 4. You can also read up on the key characters with profiles for Rei, Mirai, Mephis, Pheles, Heraclitus here, and 777 here, and here for more on the game’s story of death and revival in an afterlife world.
