Summer is a time for sunshine and in Japan the end of the world. World Destruction has become notable for its plot, the player causing “world destruction” other than saving it, and the collaboration with some ex-Xenogears staff.
That’s really not much, but this set of screenshots is a pretty good look at the characters. Kyrie, the male protagonist, is teamed up with Morte (symbolism alert?), the female protagonist, and a walking teddy bear bounty hunter named Toppy.
The neatest concrete detail revealed so far about World Destruction is the battle system. The combat system stretches monsters on to two screens. The serpent-like creature Kyrie is slashing looks mammoth in scale, which is sort of a throwback to larger than life bosses.
World Destruction was actually hinted at last year, but that was before it had a title. Remember how Image Epoch (Lumionus Arc) put up some concept art for Project Salamander? World Destruction is Project Salamander. We still don’t know what Project Ray is though.
