Its 3D action battles are allow you to perform simple combos by tapping the screen. You can use the “Character Change” system to pull off a variety of combos while cycling through characters.
There are three kinds of roles with the “Lord” (tank) shown as Theo specializes in buffing allies, the “Mage” (support) shown as Siluca can use magic to heal or stop enemies in their track. And then you have Irvine as the “Demon Seal Holders” (attacker/DPS) that specializes in dealing heavy damage.
Bandai Namco is preparing an original story that will be told in the style of anime episodes. There are also some Guild Battle features that require strategizing before taking on the powerful enemies.
