  • Setsuna – The son of the long-reigning king and Shiki’s cousin. He calls himself the true heir to the throne. He fights using a “Heavenly Sword,” the light of which extends his reach.

The magazine also has new details about the game’s systems:

  • World Map – You can choose a battle to clear on the world map, and the story advances by clearing key battles, but there are also other battles such as “Hero Battles” where you gain more allies, “Dramatic Battles” where you fight against many heroes, and “Field Battles” where you freely fight.
  • Hero Skills – The four characters that aren’t the player character can also use Hero Skills. The skills will act as support the player.
  • Musou Fever – Musou Fever shines the spotlight on the character. The player’s ability increases, as does support from the four ally characters.
  • Friendship Levels – Each character has a Friendship Level. As this level increases, support attacks are more likely to be triggered and events will occur.
