Florence Nightingale’s genome is the core of the Healer class which can use recovery spells.

The Martial Artist is extremely skilled using a sword and can slice with lightning speed. This class uses Miyamoto Musashi’s genome as a base.
Genghis Khan’s genome is used for the Archer class which can target enemies in the back row.
Hattori Hanzo’s genome is the source for the Assassin class. These warriors can take out enemies in one hit and can throw items like shuriken.
Monks use Xuanzang’s genome and can repeatedly hit a single enemy.
Abe no Seimei’s genome powers the Summoner class.
Tokyo New World Record: Operation Abyss comes out on January 23, 2014 for PlayStation Vita.
