■ Game Overview
Buster: Master a Diverse Set of Weapons and Carry a Fixed Amount of Souls to the Goal
Three players are Busters. Lasers, shotguns, and flamethrowers are some of the weapons you can master to help you fight alongside other players.
Busters win by successfully carrying a fixed amount of “Souls” over to the goal. Defeat Undead enemies that spawn throughout the stage and pick up their “Souls.”
Undead enemies also attack Busters. Take them down before they take you down.
Monsters fair better in a one-on-one fight. Working together and coordinating your movement with your teammates is the key to victory.
If You Die, You Can Still Continue the Game as a Ghost
A Buster enters the ghost state when their life reaches zero. Ghosts cannot attack, but they are not attacked by monsters. You can move and carry souls as normal and can easily be brought back to life if you have a Buster near you.
If you work well with your mate, you can even carry souls through monster attacks…?
Monster: Send Those Pesky Busters Flying with Your Extravagant Skills
One player is a Monster. Prey on an enemy until they die using the special technique “Predation.” Utilise a “Skill” unique to that Monster to fight against the Busters.
The Monster wins by taking down all the Busters, or by reaching the match time limit.
Predation can be interrupted by attacks from other Busters. Do your best to avoid their attacks, and make sure there aren’t any leftovers.
Monsters have unique Skills. Maybe a Buster hiding within the walls can be crushed along with the building?
Repeat Matches and Collect “Soul Coins” to Get Weapons and Costumes
Weapons and costumes can be obtained with “Soul Coins,” an in-game currency that is awarded based on performance in matches. Weapons are divided into several categories, each with different strengths. Costumes, on the other hand, are not related to performance. Collect as many as you can and enjoy coordinating them freely.
You can dress-up your character in 3 places: the head, the body, and the face. The lineup ranges from super-cute to a-little-weird.
What you end up looking like depends on the current item lineup and the player’s sense. Enjoy trying out a bunch of different outfits!
Find a weapon that is easy for you to use from a variety of types.
Stand out from other players with your own unique coordination.
Enhance Your Character’s Performance with “Enhanced Gear”
The performance of a character can be raised with “Enhancement Gear.” Equipping this Gear provides special effects such as increased attack power.
Enhancement Gear can be purchased and reinforced with Soul Gems, which can be obtained by fulfilling certain conditions in matches.
Equipped with jump power up Gear, you can even jump as high as this!
Earn “Soul Coins” and “Soul Gems” by Competing in “Episode Match” and Customize Your Character as You Go
“Soul Coins” and “Soul Gems,” which are necessary for customization, can be obtained from “Episode Match.” Enjoy the cyclically unfolding storyline and regularly added stages, while competing against online players.
Up to four players can play in an Episode Match. Invite your friends to play together. Up to two people can participate in an online match from a single console.
There are various locations for the stages. More locations will be added in future updates.
■ Character Introductions
An incredible cast of voice actors known across multiple hit media titles are here to voice the characters designed by Terada Tera. Not only can you set the match voice-over, but you can also set the Menu and System voice-over as well. Stay tuned for even more Voice options in the future.
