Ignite Your Ultimate Attacks in The Alliance Alive

When it comes to battling Daemons in The Alliance Alive, it's best to understand the combat system to ensure attacks are the best they can be. Here are a few important points to prepare for battle:

Get to know the "Ignition" system

Each character has a collection of "Battle Arts" that'll unleash a fury of attacks on opponents. In the middle of battle, spark an "Awakening," a mechanic that can randomly trigger when using Battle Arts. These "Awakenings" can either level up the art being used or unlock a new, related art. Keep using your Battle Arts and the "Ignition" gauge will build up. Once full, unleash an ultimate attack called a "Final Strike" to deal some major damage against enemies.

Attacking enemies, taking damage and having a party member get KO'd all also build up the gauge, so think strategically about how to approach a fight.

Watch the Daemonic Character Trailer
We've already introduced some of the human characters in our previous trailer, but let's talk about some of the more colorful members of the group. And by colorful, we mean Daemonic. Yes, you read that correctly; there are good Daemons that want to join the fight to help free Humanity!

First up, we have the mighty, no-nonsense, Beastfolk Barbarosa. Although he was once used as an instrument of war by the Daemons to enslave humanity, he is now a key member of the Night Ravens resistance group. His skills with an axe and loyalty to his friends are valuable assets in the battles to come. Up next, we have the dynamic duo of Vivian and Ignace. Vivian is a fox-like Daemon from another world who wishes to learn more about the curious creatures known as humans. She's a compassionate being that harbors no ill-will towards other species, but don't let her bubbly and friendly disposition fool you. Vivian is an extremely powerful sorceress who won't hesitate to use her powers for good. Finally, we have Vivian's servant, Ignace. Even though he's extremely pompous towards non-Daemons and clashes with some members of the party, his loyalty to Vivian is unwavering. Plus, he's pretty good in a scrap, so never count him out!

From The Legend of Legacy developer FURYU Corporation and launching March 27, 2018 The Alliance Alive can be pre-ordered now for $39.99. The game will come out physically and digitally in the Americas.

Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology Battle System Trailer Shows Off Best Tactics

In Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology, it takes a well thought out strategy to maximize your attacks because the battle system is more than a simple turn-based mechanic. Here is what you can do to turn the system to your advantage:

Maneuver adversaries around the battle grid
Strike multiple foes in one attack
Shift your enemy or team's attack order to take full advantage of capabilities using the change command
Receive combat aid with new support skills
Finish off opponents with a devastating blow using mana burst abilities
Watch these tactics in action in our new Battle System trailer!

Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology features:

An Enhanced Retelling of the Original - You'll once again take the reins of Alistel operative Stocke as he unlocks the power of the White Chronicle relic and gains the ability to travel between two alternate timelines. With his new-found powers, Stocke will need to right the wrongs of the past in order to prevent the total annihilation of the world. This time though, things are a bit different. Redesigned character art, new character voice-overs, a brand-new opening animation by A-1 Pictures, new theme song, event illustrations, five new tracks from original composer Yoko Shimomura, and additional difficulty settings will enhance the experience in this fresh take of a beloved story.

Exhilarating New Story Content - Stocke will now encounter a mysterious new character named Nemesia who will teach him more about his world's history and unlock a third timeline to explore the ripple effect of some of his actions with episodic "what-if" scenarios. If you're a Radiant Historia purist who simply wants to play through the original game's story, we have you covered! Perfect Chronology offers two different modes: Append and Perfect. Append mode allows you to beat the original game before having the option to start a NewGame+ with the added content, while Perfect mode lets you play through the game with the inclusion of the third timeline from the beginning.

A Classic That Can't Be Missed - Even though there's an abundance of expanded content to delve into, the heart and soul of Radiant Historia remains the same. If you missed out on the original game in 2011, the upcoming port is the perfect chance to play a modern classic. With an exciting positioning-based battle system, memorable characters, and thrilling time-travel mechanics, Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology is an essential for JRPG fans.

Those who pre-order or snag limited launch copies of Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology will be able to commemorate their escapades through different timelines with some pretty nifty goodies (Americas only). There'll be an exclusive art book (we'll reveal more details in the future) and a decal set that features some key figures from the game like the stoic Alistel agent Stocke, faithful confidants Raynie and Marco, the tough-as-nails Rosch, and other familiar faces. Changing the course of history isn't easy, so use the art book and decals to remember everything that is and could have been. Those of you in Europe who pre-order or grab limited launch copies will receive an art book tucked inside the game case.

Shin Megami Tensei V director talks game goals, keywords, using Unreal Engine 4, and more

As we mentioned earlier today, Shin Megami Tensei V director ‎Kazuyuki Yamai sat down with Famitsu to talk about the title. We now have more snippets to share from that interview.

- first Shin Megami Tensei title was released in October, 25 years ago
- the announcement of SMTV was to show that the Shin Megami Tensei series will continue, and celebrate the series' history
- the dev team is looking to reexamine the “characteristics of the era”
- there are many people frustrated by troubles both at home and abroad, and the devs want to make a game to sympathize with such an era
- the keywords “Shekinah Glory,” which appeared in the trailer, literally translate to “miracle of God”
- when you actually play it and have these keywords in your head, the devs think you will be able to feel their true meaning
- Shinagawa Station is one spot where modern day Tokyo is well represented
- this is the first time Atlus is using Unreal Engine 4
- it seems the use of this engine has made things much easier for the dev team
- the team loves that Switch is high-def, but also lets you take your game anywhere you go
- classic elements like demon fusion will of course be included, and new elements are being considered
- the goal is to deliver a hybrid game that combines the profound appeal of Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne and the popular training elements of Shin Megami Tensei IV
- we'll have to wait awhile longer to see the game released
