Here are some additional tidbits about the updated version of the game:


  • Elsa from Students of the Round will make an appearance as part of a dungeon event.


  • Additional new classes in “Clocker” and “Puppeteer.”


  • New “Guard Counter” system.


  • Battle, base, dungeon, 25 item, and 70 areas will see adjustments and improvements.


  • In addition to Clocker and Puppeteer, the game will have 11 classes compared to the 8 in the original version.


  • Clockers are mage knights that are able to control time. Part of their bodies are mechanized and they’re able to control time for multiple actions at once.


  • Puppeteers use skills with “suggestions” on the battle field. For example, if a leader monster retreats to the back of the pack, you’ll be able to put a Suggestion on it and make it go to the front row.


  • Another new feature is the “Subjugation Challenge.” This mode lets you get extra rewards for taking down enemies with an appropriate lineage class level.


  • As for the Guard Counter, it lets you see through an enemy attack for a chance to land your own powerful attack to knock them out in a hit.


  • New Soul Relief events will be added to certain NPCs.


The game is set for release on July 21, 2016 for PlayStation Vita. There will only be 5,000 first-print editions of the game, which features a novel written by Benny Matsuyama as a 5,000 yen bundle. Additionally, those with the previous version of the game can upgrade to the newer version for 1,800 yen.
