The latest set of Tokyo Xanadu screenshots introduce the game’s final set of sub-characters. There’s Eiji, the yakuza, and Akihiro, the juvenile delinquent. Additionally, we also get a look at how different attributes affect weapons, as well as how upgrades affect skills.
Get the information below.
Eiji Goto (voiced by Eiji Takemoto)
A big man who serves as the waka gashira of the Takabane gang, which is based in Morimiya City. He has a threatening appearance to him that overwhelms those around him, but is a chivalrous yakuza who doesn’t allow himself to go against the gang’s moral code. Members of the gang admire him and refer to him as “Aniki.”
Nowadays, the Takabane gang sets up office in the Hourai-chou neighborhood where delinquents are frequently causing incidents. The protagonist Kou included, the members of the gang seem vigilant, however…
Akihiro Inui (voiced by Shunsuke Kanie)
A man with a suspicious atmosphere, as well as the second generation leader of the delinquent group BLAZE. After Shio retired as the group’s leader, Akihiro elected himself the new head and gathered up a team from the dissolved group to form a rebirth of BLAZE and restart activity.
By absorbing a small team in the Morimiya City area and expanding its power, the BLAZE led by Akihiro appears to be becoming more and more radical. However…
■ Master Core: Attribute and Soul Device Changes
Each character has their own unique Soul Device weapon, which can be enhanced. As you progress through the story, you’ll be able to switch out your Soul Device’s “Master Core.”
Each character has their own predetermined base attribute. For example:
- Kou: Flame
- Asuka: Spirit
- Sora: Wind
- Yuuki: Steel
And so on. However, it is possible for each character to change their Master Core to one with a different base attribute.
In addition to changing the base attribute of each character when switching Master Cores, the look of your Soul Device will also change depending on the attribute.
When you change from his basic “Flame” attribute to the “Shadow” attribute, his Soul Device becomes jet black and appears more aggressive. When he uses skills, his flames also become purple.
When you change from her basic “Wind” attribute to the “Spirit” attribute, her winged Soul Device takes a more complex form. When she uses her strength skills, she creates blue tornadoes.
■ Upgrading Skills
By strengthening your Soul Device, you can also upgrade each characters shooting, strength, and flight skills. By upgrading skills and raising them to certain levels, there are cases where their appearance and performance will be greatly enhanced.
By raising her skill level to a certain point, the strength skill “Crystal Sword” will greatly increase in attack power and range.
By raising his skill level to a certain point, the energy bullets from the shooting skill “Lambda Shot” will increase in size, and basic attack power will also greatly increase.
Tokyo Xanadu is due out for PS Vita in Japan on September 30.
