Ikenie to Yuki no Setsuna details character customization, new character Scythe Man

Website updated with new screenshots.

Square Enix has updated the Ikenie to Yuki no Setsuna official website with new details and screenshots about the game’s character customization and mysterious Scythe Man character.

The details expand upon what we covered earlier today about the Materia-esque Gem system.

Get the information below.

■ Character Customization

In this game, there are “Gems” you can equip that manifest character-specific techniques and magic, and can enhance various abilities. By successfully combining Gems, you can dominate battles.

By equipping Gems, you can unlock the Gem’s hidden techniques and magic.

When used with the Setsuna system, the magic and techniques of Gems have an expanded effect. The heaven attribute “Sacred” Gem attack, for example, heals all of your HP when used with the Setsuna System.

The “Caloric” Gem expands the range of your attack. You can even do damage to several enemies with your common attack.

The “Harvest” Gem restores your HP when you deliver the finishing attack to the enemy. It’s certainly something to equip to attack-based party members.
