Compile Heart has updated the official Japanese website for Death end re;Quest with new information and screenshots on the game’s “Entoma Queen” and “Divine Beast” enemies, as well as its “Battle Jack System.”
Get the details below.
While most Entoma leech onto something, there are some that do not leech and exist on their own to create even more Entoma. These are what Shina and company refer to as “Queens,” in the vein of queen bees and queen ants. The Queens that block Shina and company’s path forward will be fought against as boss battles, and by defeating these Queens, you will be able to summon them as “Summons Bugs” under your control.
The final boss monster in “World’s Odyssey.” It protects the temple in Odysseia, the Sky City. It is said that those who defeat this Divine Beast will be recognized as a god and all will be granted to them.
◆ Battle Jack System
The Battle Jack System is a special action used by protagonist Arata Mizunashi through which he supports Shina and company from the real world. Arata uses his programming abilities to intervene in battle and take control of the situation. However, in order to use the Battle Jack System, it is necessary to reduce the amount of “Field Bugs” on the battlefield. Remove Field Bugs with the Knock Bug System and other methods to enable further pursuit through the Battle Jack System.
- Code Jack – Control the current battlefield with cheat codes created by Arata Mizunashi.
- Summon – Summon the Entoma you have captured to the battlefield as Summons Bugs.
- Install Genre – Change the rules of battle.
Do things such as “change the effects of Field Bugs to whatever you want” or “increase or decrease the contamination rate of an enemy or ally.” Take a complete look at the battle to turn the threats coming your way into opportunities and bestow effects to “control the battlefield.”
After defeating an Entoma Queen, which appear in the game as bosses, you will be able to use them as Summons Bugs under the control of Arata Mizunashi. As enemies, they are threats, but as allies, they are an extremely powerful means of attack.
Entoma Queens possess infinite physical strength, and in addition to acting as a shield that lures in party attacks, it can also use its own powerful attacks.
However, a Summons Bug is still a bug. For every action it takes, a Field Bug will regenerate. When the field is filled with Field Bugs, you will lose control of the Summons Bug and it will disappear. It is important to reduce the number of Field Bugs on the field as much as possible beforehand in order to use a Summons Bug.
Installs various “genres” into the RPG command battle system that change the rules of battle. For example, by changing the genre to “fighting game,” you can attack enemies that specialize in fighting from the rear head-on from the front. With this unprecedented system, you can drag enemies into rules that give you the upper hand. Furthermore, for each genre, when it comes time to attack and a Summons Bug is on the battlefield, you can activate additional pursuits using the Summons Bug by meeting pre-set conditions.
The battlefield is converted into a horizontal scroll-style fighting game stage. There are no Field Bugs here, and enemy characters are lined up in a row. You can move your characters left and right and unleash combo attacks against the enemies you run into.
Enables you to shoot a magic laser from your current location, and attack continuously until the SP of the character you are controlling runs out. The laser’s power is extremely high, and enables a free means of battle that lets you only target strong enemies, evenly mow down the enemies on the screen to deal damage to everyone, etc.
Whether you believe in your own luck or you need to turn to a higher power, this genre is effective in either situation. If you switch genres, the slots will appear. When you stop the slots reel, three images will line up based on the timing of your button press, and depending on the aligned images, effects will occur to either the enemies or your party. There are various effects based on the images that align, including total party recovery and dealing big damage.
Death end re;Quest will launch for PlayStation 4 in Japan on March 1, 2018 for 7,776 yen at retail and 6,912 yen via download.
