We recently got to check out The Stranger of the Village of the Sword’s mysterious opening video, and while much of the game’s story remains unknown, their latest update on the official website tells us how you’ll control the destiny of how it ends, with the light, neutral, and dark paths.
In The Stranger of the Village of the Sword, the three characters of Malilith, Riu, and Alm are vessels to the dormant spirits of greater beings. By giving them “Pure Crystals,” which can be obtained through monsters, they can regain their true powers.
However, in order to obtain the Pure Crystals, you’ll need to defeat specific monsters that have infinite lives. They can only be defeated by having their “Blood Crystals” taken from within them, and this can only be done by the chosen ones.
Malilith’s Spirit of Light “Phoenix,” Riu’s Neutral Dragon King “Oblis” (オブリス), and Alm’s Demon Lord of Darkness, “Ol Ouma” (オル・オーマ). Once one of these three fully awaken their powers, the story will near its end.
Depending on who you hand over the Pure Crystals to, different “Divinity Skills” will be unlocked. These skills can be used in combat by using the accumulated Morale meter. These skills have offensive, defensive, and magical attributes that will give you a big advantage in combat.
The Stranger of the Village of the Sword is slated for release on Xbox 360 on June 5, PC on August 22, and later this year for PlayStation Vita.
