■ About Yohane the Parhelion: BLAZE in the DEEPBLUE
Yohane the Parhelion is an official anime spin-off of Love Live!! Sunshine. Yohane the Parhelion: BLAZE in the DEEPBLUE is a 2D action game set in that fantasy world.
The player takes control of Yohane as she ventures into a mysterious dungeon alongside her partner Lailaps. She must challenge the monster-infested labyrinth to rescue her missing friends.
As Yohane crafts new equipment from the items she finds and gains the power of her comrades, she’ll be able to explore more and more of the dungeon.
Parts of the dungeon will have randomized layouts, making for a hack & slash action game that stays fresh each time you play it.
When an undersea dungeon suddenly surfaces in the ocean near Numazu, it becomes the talk of the town.

In order to rescue her friends, Yohane herself must brave the depths. She’ll encounter fierce challenges, such as monstrous fish and ever-changing corridors.
Will Yohane be able to rescue her friends and uncover the mystery of the dungeon?
