See Lord of Magna’s Battle System In Action



Xseed have shared a battle tutorial for Lord of Magna, Marvelous’ upcoming Nintendo 3DS strategy RPG. The tutorial shows off movement, engaging enemies, the various commands available to one in battle, and more.


In Lord of Magna, the goal is to “bowl” over as many enemies as possible with a single strike. Four main elements come into play during battles, each with their own strengths and weaknesses—Flame, Frost, Heaven, and Earth. There’s also a neutral non-element, Void, which has no strengths or weaknesses.


Additionally, Luchs, the game’s protagonist, can spend time with Lord of Magna’s female characters as part of a feature called “Heart Events,” and the more time you spend with a heroine, the greater number of special skills that will be unlocked for both characters.


Lord of Magna will be released this June for the Nintendo 3DS. The game’s first-print run in North America will come with an original soundtrack CD, featuring 28 songs from the game.
