Armed Fantasia will implement a role switching system
Wild Bunch Productions has revealed more detailed information about the gameplay and world map of Army fantasy. Akifumi Kanekowho created the wild arms series, is in charge of developing the game. The game shares its Kickstarter with Penny Blood and Army fantasy was the first to achieve its ambitious goal of $750,000. In doing so, it allowed the team to implement a role-switching system. [Thanks, Famitsu!]
The role-switching system will allow you to let characters equip all kinds of ARMs and not just the type they start out with. Doing so will add more options for how you organize your party, as well as putting characters in outfits they wouldn’t normally have access to. There is no information on all types of ARM that will be in Army fantasy just still, though.
Army fantasy has a gadget system for exploring dungeons, and each character will offer a new gadget for the player to use. The protagonist Ingram will use bombs, which will explode after a set period of time.
This gadget will allow you to destroy walls with cracks, as well as break rocks. By doing so, you can create a platform to jump on in order to reach higher places. Ingram can place multiple bombs at once, which will cause a bigger explosion. According to Kaneko’s Twitter, the team is also developing a grappling hook-type gadget.
Last night’s information has been lifted.
It was an unsatisfactory update, so
I will release information without permission!
