About

Mercenaries Blaze: Dawn of the Twin Dragons features a lengthy campaign with gameplay depth and a fascinating story. Grow with your team by clearing strategic turn-based battles, with many optional missions and details to consider—which class will you upgrade for each character, and what equipment or skills will you prioritize?

Developer Rideon’s highly-regarded turn-based strategy battles are carried out from an isometric viewpoint, and are characterized by increased versatility as you position characters not just in terms of elevation and enemies, but also to maximize attacks and defense depending on the direction you face. Varied weapons and skills are all tools that need to be utilized smartly for the best results, with character classes being integral to the player’s strategy.

New to the series for Mercenaries Blaze: Dawn of the Twin Dragons are fully 3D battle maps, along with improved visuals and audio. Character designs are from Mr. Masayoshi Nishimura, with the varied cast telling an exciting and surprising story.
