The four points of Forbidden Magna

Maid-In, CLT System, Animation, and ETR System.

Forbidden Magna

Marvelous AQL released new details and screenshots this morning of its upcoming 3DS game Forbidden Magna, which is in development by the team behind the Rune Factory series.

The new details come in the form of a four-point outline, detailed below:

Point #1: Maid-In System

During “Inn Parts,” you can enjoy conversations and events with the spirits you’ve befriended that work at the inn as live-in maids.

Point #2: CLT System

“Battle Parts” use the ‘Connect Lead Time System,” which is a speedy action game-like turn-based battle system. The spirits are experts of battle. Each character’s attack range and movement distance varies. As such, it’s up to you to come up with the best positions so they can sweep up lots of enemies in one fell swoop!

Point #3: In-Game Animation

The story’s more important scenes are depicted via animated cutscenes, with colorful voice actors on hand to help bring the game’s charm to life.

Point #4: ETR System

Players will find a lot of options at their disposal when it comes to forging stronger bonds with spirits, including the ETR system in battles and various special events. One example of where these dynamics come into play involves Charlotte, who might be dealing with some issues. Why not talk it out, just the two of you?

Forbidden Magna is due out for 3DS in Japan on October 2. View the screenshots at the gallery.
