Story
 
Backbone

In the year 1999, mankind completed the scientific theory of limitless energy, dubbed magic.
However, man did not discard his ignorance upon obtaining this wisdom.
The very magic meant to usher in world peace was instead leveraged as a tool of war,
and in time the forbidden biological weapons known as Gears were created.
As if to condemn these thoughtless deeds, the Gears developed a will of their own
and turned their fangs upon humanity.

The Crusades, a centuries-long struggle for survival against the Gears, finally ended when
mankind sealed away the Destroyer, Justice. Though man emerged victorious,
many threats yet loom large in the shadows of that hard-fought peace,
threatening to engulf the world.

And so mankind must continue to atone for the sin of magic.


Main Story

October 21, 2187 at 12:12
A young woman identifying herself as Ramlethal Valentine
declares war upon the entire world and all its inhabitants.

There was not a single individual, organization, or country that took this as a laughing matter.
This was on account of the prior Baptism 13 Incident, during which the United Kingdoms of Illyria were invaded,
for the herald of that onslaught had also referred to herself as Valentine.

Now, in order to ascertain the truth of these events, the world takes action.

System

This information pertains to the first location test and is subject to change.

[Changelog for the second location test.] [Changelog for the third location test.]

Game Rules

Match Format

The first player to completely drain their opponent's life bar wins the round. The player who wins 2 out of 3 rounds wins the match.

Time Limit

Each round has a time limit of 99 seconds. When the time is up, the player with the highest life level wins.

Ties

A tie occurs if there is a double knockout or if the players have an equal amount of life when the time is up. If the match is not settled in 3 rounds, a 4th round (final round) begins. If the match cannot be decided by the end of the 4th round, the game is over for both players.

Basic Controls

:u: Jump

:ub: Jump Backward (Aerial Guard)

:b: Move Backward (Guard)

:db: Crouch (Guard)

:uf: Jump Forward

:f: Move Forward

:d: Crouch

High Jump -------- :d::u: quickly

Two-Level Jumps -- :u: during a jump

Dash (Backstep) --- :f::f: / :b::b: (midair)

Movement System

Aerial Dash ------ :f::f: while jumping to quickly move toward your opponent.*

Aerial Backstep -- :b::b: while jumping to quickly move away from your opponent.

High Jump -------- :d::u: quickly to jump higher than usual.

Two-Level Jumps -- :u: while jumping to jump again in midair.

*Millia can perform two consecutive Aerial Dashes.

Game Screen

5p1pms.png

Life Bar

Shows the character's remaining life.

Burst Gauge

This gauge is consumed by Psych Bursts but is regained over time or whenever your opponent hits your character. An X appears when the gauge is unusable.

Tension Gauge

This gauge is required for Overdrive Attacks and Roman Cancels. It increases each time you dash or perform an offensive action.

Victory Mark

Shows the number of rounds you won in the current match.

Time Clock

Shows the time left in the round. When time runs out, the character with the most life left wins.

R.I.S.C. Level

This increases each time you block your opponent's attacks and decreases when you are hit. Once it reaches a certain level, you can counter any attack from your opponent.

Negative Penalty

If you keep acting passively, the Tension Gauge will be reduced to zero. Take caution when the message warning "Danger" appears.

Universal Moves

Sweep: :d: + :dbt:

An attack that standing guard cannot prevent. It knocks your opponent down and leaves them at a disadvantage.

Gatling Combos: Push buttons at the right time in a specified order

By pressing various attack buttons, you can easily create your own combination attacks.

Throws and Aerial Throws: :b: or :f: + :h: while near an opponent

These are grappling attack that bypass your opponent's guard. You can also perform aerial throws while you and your opponent are both in midair.

Special Moves: See character command lists

These are powerful attacks unique to each character.

Overdrive Attacks: See character command lists*

These are extremely powerful attacks unique to each character.

*Consume 50% of the Tension Gauge

Dust Attack: :dbt: while standing

A special type of attack that cannot be guarded by crouching. After hitting your opponent, it's possible to chase them.

  • Press :u: to chase your opponent by leaping into the air.
  • Press :f: to chase your opponent by rushing forward. It's possible to launch a powerful close-range attack near the edge of the screen.




    Recovery: Push any attack button (except :dbt:) at the right time in midair
    By regaining your balance in midair, you can escape an opponent that's chasing you.

    Faultless Defense: Guard while simultaneously holding down any two attack buttons (except :dbt:)*
    While active, guarding becomes much more effective compared the basic guard.
    *Gradually consumes the Tension Gauge while active

    Dead Angle Attack: While guarding, simultaneously press :f: + any two attack buttons (except :dbt:)*
    Perform a counterattack after guarding.
    *Consume 50% of the Tension Gauge




    Psyche Burst: Simultaneously press :dbt: + any attack button*
    Knocks away an attacking opponent. Guards against all damage while in effect.
    While in a normal state, hitting your opponent with a Psyche Burst completely fills the Tension Gauge.
    *Completely consumes the Burst Gauge

    Roman Cancel: Simultaneously press any three attack buttons (except :dbt:)*
    While performing an action, movement, or recovery action, you can completely interrupt it. Furthermore, it's said that succesfully performing a Roman Cancel will briefly slow the passage of time for everything except yourself. By performing a Roman Cancel after launching a projectile attack, you can simultaneously land a physical attack!
    *Consumes 50% of the Tension Gauge

    Clash
    A clash occurs when simultaneous attacks strike one another. Clashes result in one of three scenarios:

    • Normal Clash: When attacks of similar strength collide, both attackers can act immediately.
    • Repel: When attacks of varying strength collide, the weaker attacker is repelled and briefly unable to act.
    • Danger Time: When powerful attacks collide with neither giving way, Danger Time is briefly activated after a special cinematic. The first attack to hit during Danger Time will be considered a Super Counter and deal massive damage, making it crucial to take advantage of this opportunity.

Chipp Zanuff

CV: Yoshihisa Kawahara

I'll perform your eulogy!

Short in patience and long in fighting spirit. Takes a survival-of-the-fittest approach to life, and looks for the easy way out of everything except fighting, where his strategies are always exceptionally well thought out. Often flies into rages over trifling matters, although he's been working hard to hold his temper in check under his former master's admonitions. Wishes he could get himself to help others more often. Has a keen interest in Japanese culture from his former master, and possesses an image of that country that has little to do with reality.

Millia Rage

CV: Yuko Sumitomo

No time to blink!

A cold, reticent woman, nothing ever appears to interest her. Indifferent towards her feminine side, perhaps because of her assassin upbringing.

Although her mind is like a machine, there is still a little human left in her, and she is tormented inside by the recluse she has become.

Protagonist: The Flame of Corruption

Sol Badguy

CV: Jōji Nakata

Are you prepared?

Outline

A superhuman whose body was modified to serve as prototype for the creation of biological weapons known as Gears.

During the Crusades he stood with mankind as they raised their swords, and twice they defeated Justice the Destroyer, the greatest calamity the world had ever known. His undisputed fighting skills likewise halted the attempted eradication of the human race during the Baptism 13 Incident (also known as the Illyrian Invasion) as well as its mastermind, Valentine.

Now he continues his pursuit of That Man—the individual responsible for his Gear conversion and the instigator of the Crusades—while roaming the world as a bounty hunter and fostering Ky's son, Sin.

Story

Though most of the public regards the destruction wrought during the Baptism 13 Incident to be the result of a meteor strike, for Sol it was truly the culmination of a chain of events involving the origin of the Gears, the Crusades, his own conversion, and their link with the mysterious Valentine.

Upon hearing Ramlethal's decaration of war, Sol receives a request from the King of Illyria, Ky Kiske, and heads to the former site of Japan where Ramlethal lies in wait.

Personality

He's rough around the edges and hates to work hard. A man of few words, he only speaks when it’s absolutely necessary. He's not good at giving explanations or expressing himself, and as a result tends to speak in a blunt and aggressive manner. Though he could generally be regarded as self-centered and violent, his friends and companions have come to accept the behavior as something he just can't help.

Allow me to teach you the way of the thunderclap!

He is honest about everything, including his work, people, and his morals. His personality is nothing but serious. He loves the ideals of justice and is dedicated to protecting the weak.

May

CV: Satomi Kōrogi

Johnny, I'll do my best for you!

A mischievous and happy-go-lucky young girl. Her values are based completely around her consuming love for Johnny. (If Johnny was on one side of a scale and everyone else in the world were on the other, Johnny would still weigh more in her eyes.) This pure and childlike exterior belies untold strength; she can hoist up a ship's anchor by herself. Simple-minded and selfish, nothing can stop her once she gets an idea into her head.

Venom

CV: Junichi Suwabe

As deep and purple as a requiem for a gentleman...

Although he works as an assassin, his mind is pure and he has trouble hiding things from others. His actions are calm and scientific, but his thoughts are more on the romantic side. Raised in a cold environment, he has few desires in life other than to preserve his own while he searches for some meaning to his existence. His hatred of murder comes from the heart, and taking human lives outside of work is tough for him to bear.

I keep comin' up with cool ways to beat you!

The eternal optimist. Rarely thinks deeply about matters, believing that everything works out eventually. His lust for amour knows no bounds.

Faust

CV: Takashi Kondō

You don't need an insurance card~

A dark doctor who wanders all over the world, charitably helping people who are sick or in trouble. He was once known as a great doctor, but a certain medical error turned him into a serial killer. Regretting his behavior, he now seeks atonement through countless good deeds, but still hides his true face beneath a paper bag of guilt. Though he's often misunderstood due to his strange appearance and behavior, he's actually a sensible man.

Slayer

CV: Iemasa Kayumi

Let me teach you what fighting is...

A vampiric gentleman with fighting skills that transcend those of mortals and immortals alike. He's dedicated to dandyism, and has therefore burdened himself with a fighting style that allows only his own body to be used as a weapon. His hobbies are reading haikus and people watching, and he takes interest in and favors remarkable human beings. He founded the Assassins' Guild long ago to ensure a steady supply of drinkable blood, but after meeting a woman named Sharon who would not die or become a vampire no matter how many times he drained her, he took her as his wife and used the opportunity to retire, ceding leadership to his colleague, Zato. After that he settled into a quiet and comfortable retirement free from mortal affairs, but upon sensing a disturbing vibe in the world, has decided to return to the battlefield once more. As an aside, though he frequently enters haiku contests under a secret pet name, he has never won a prize.

Updated with Faust, Slayer, and the movelists for Axl and I-No.

2nd Location Test Player Manual Changelog

Basic Controls

Typo correction: ":h:: Slash" → ":h:: Heavy Slash"

Blitz Shield

New defensive mechanic that replaces the Repel mechanic from the Clash system. It briefly creates a shield that will repel an incoming attack, creating a chance for a counterattack. Performed by pressing any two buttons that aren't :dbt: while standing, crouching, or jumping. Does not work while defending. Consumes 25% of the Tension Gauge.

Roman Cancel

"*Consumes 50% of the Tension Gauge" → "*Consumes either 25% or 50% of the Tension Gauge"

Clash

The Clash system has been reworked:

  • Normal Clash is now called Clash and simply negates both attacks.
  • The Repel mechanic has been removed. See: Blitz Shield.
  • Danger Time is now a random occurance that can rarely be triggered by a Clash.

Chipp Zanuff

New move, Shinkirō (Mirage): :f::d::df: + :h: (after ② or ③)

Updated with Zato-1, ????? (new character), and the confirmed seiyū for all the characters.

Support for Aime cards will also begin from the third location test on, allowing players to upload their data to the server, however the Player's Guild website will not be available during this test. The data uploaded during the testing period will also be reset when the game officially launches.

Edit: The latest issue of Dengeki PlayStation has revealed that the new character's name is Bedman, and that he's voiced by Hikaru Midorikawa.
