Tokyo Xanadu adds new character Rion

The idol character you've been waiting for.

Tokyo Xanadu

Dengeki PlayStation this week reveals Rion Kugayama the seventh playable character to join Tokyo Xanadu.

Rion, voiced by Manami Numakura, uses a pair of wings as her weapon and has the wind attribute. She is 17 years old, a member of the popular idol group “SPiKA,” and is a bit of a devil in both looks and attitude. Armed with the skillful ability to sing, she is always getting into quarrels with her close friend and rival over who takes the center of SPiKA. Contrary to her easy-going appearance, she’s actually a hard worker. She puts her heart and soul into her idol work, and does not hide the fact that she’s an idol at school. She shows her true colors when she’s on her own, but if someone else sees this side of her, she gets defiant with them.

Her normal wing attack is performed by rotating her body and sending out a shock wave. Its range is narrow, but it’s troublesome for the enemies it strikes.

Here’s an overview of Rion’s skills:

  • Shooting Skill: “Brilliant Ray” – A homing attack with lock-on.
  • Flight Skill: “Sonic Wing” – Triggers a shock wave behind Rion as she takes high-speed flight, and only consumes a small amount of the skill gauge.
  • Strength Skill: “Sylphy Cyclone” – Creates a huge tornado. If triggered at a close distance, it will have a multi-stage hit.
  • Cross Strike: “Seraphim Hearts” – While freely moving around the enemy, Rion unleashes a countless number of homing lasers.

Other members of SPiKA include (names to be confirmed):

  • Reika Kisaragi (voiced by Ayaka Suwa) – 17 years old. One of the initial members of SPiKA and an acquaintance of Rion from their training school days. She has good style and is also a model.
  • Wakaba Yuzuki (voiced by Ari Ozawa) – 15 years old. A second age member of SPiKA. She’s a courageous and kind girl.
  • Haruna Tendou (voiced by Aya Suzaki) – 17 years old. One of the initial members of SPiKA, she’s a girl with black hair who has a tidy air about her. Thanks to her talent as an performer, there are rumors she is being selected as a commercial actress for a large company.
  • Akira Nanase (voiced by Mutsumi Tamura) – 15 years old. A girl with boyish behavior and a close friend of Wakaba.

Tokyo Xanadu is due out for PS Vita in Japan on September 30.
