Forbidden Magna videos introduce battle system and inn

Take a tour with Lux around the first floor of the inn.

Forbidden Magna

Marvelous has released new video and screenshots showing Forbidden Magna‘s battle system and inn.

Battles in Forbidden Magna take place via a turn-based system, with the order being determined by each character’s speed. After assembling a party in the form of a deck, players command their characters with controls that are described as being akin to those of an action game’s. Beyond that, the criteria for winning and losing each fight varies.

Characters can also pull off special attacks that are unlocked as their trust in Lux, the protagonist, deepens, with opportunities to do so marked with a heart icon over their heads outside battle. Once the special attacks are unlocked, they can be executed by expending the Tension Gauge, which is built up by defeating enemies.

The inn is Lux’s adventure base, where he lives together with the spirits. The first floor of the inn has a front and dining room, kitchen, Lux’s room, and workshop. Have a look at the first floor of the inn in the video below.

Forbidden Magna is due out for 3DS in Japan on October 2. First-print run copies of the game will include a drama CD and eyemask.
