New Shining Resonance info (Tuning)

From Famitsu.

  • Despite being on the same side, Zest and The Empire don't share the same motive. He's difficult to control even by his boss Georg (leader of Beowulf).
  • His weapon is twin magic gunblade named Amphisbaena.
  • His main technique is "self-taught dark martial arts."

  • Her description is "elf who hides in the moonlight." 
  • She serves Excela closely.
  • It sounds like her tragic past forces her to become evil. (Basically the racism (Elf vs. Dark Elf))
  • Her main technique is Dark Ninjutsu.

Armonix Tuning
  • It appears that a Tuning works as a growth formula. (Not a point allotment system as we first thought.) That means even each character has only one weapon for the entire game, you can alter its parameters by switching between Tunings. A Tuning can also grant a passive skill to the weapon, like Max MP Up or adding Fire or Ice attribute.
  • You level up (rank up) these Tunings separately.
  • You can obtain a new Tuning by completing a quest given by a minstrel NPC named Fernando.
  • But eventually you'll find a better Tuning, and that forces you to level up the new Tuning.
  • Each kind of Tuning has a number of Skill Slots.
  • Skill Slots allow you to attach Skill Pieces to it. (Like Max HP +10%)
  • You can't attach Skill Piece of the same name, but similar effect is allowed.
  • Naturally, it's better to have a Tuning that has more number of Skill Slots.

Shining Resonance will be released on December 11. Sonia is expected to be playable in Beast Note's most anticipated fighting game Blade Arcus.

[Video] Garireo vs. Kami-chan FT5 in Kohime Enbu

This's a Koihime Enbu exhibition match between Garireo and GODSGARDEN's Kami-chan from the monthly Koihime Enbu tournament on Sunday at Leisure Land Akihabara 1 game center.

We rarely see Kami-chan play fighting games nowadays, but his main fighting game is now Koihime Enbu. Garireo is the man who won Evo 2014 with a big comeback in BlazBlue grand finals.

Saint Seiya LoS BD/DVD coming December 5, with English sub

It's announced last week that the Blu-ray and DVD of Saint Seiya: Legend of Sanctuary will be released on December 5.

From the product description, the BD/DVD will feature English subtitle.

Saint Seiya is a legendary series from the manga that was first published in 1986. This film is a reboot of the entire Sanctuary saga (first saga of the series), with new storytelling and redesigned saint armors (called Cloth).

Due to its nature, Saint Seiya is made into a fighting game from time to time. The last one was Brave Soldiers (2013), and Ultimate Cosmo (2012) before that. Seiya is also playable in J-Star Victory Vs (2014).

New Shining Resonance info (Excela, Kizuna Diagram, Dating)

The official site of Shining Resonance is updated with these information.

  • Her title is "Dragon Knight Princess of Divine Song."
  • Her class is Dragon Master.
  • She excels at supergravity magic.
  • She appears to have Armonix lance that also works as a flute.
  • Her enemy is Diva Magica and 7 Armonix users.
  • She has 3 dragon minions.
  • Her goal is to capture all dragons.
  • One of her sample voices reveals that she has a soft spot and that she's all alone and can only trust dragons.

Kizuna Diagram
  • Each character obtains a new unique personality from a scenario.
  • A bad relationship is developed if both characters' personalities don't match. Vice versa, a good relationship is developed when setting matching personalities.
  • These relationships are called Kizuna(s).
  • In an example, Yuma and Agnum are showed to have "Negative Power" Kizuna.
  • In another example, they're showed to have "Let's Go, Brothers!" Kuzuna.
  • Kizuna(s) affect party member's actions in combat.

  • Resonance randomly occurs in combat.
  • It allows two character to perform a unique action (attack or support) together, depending on their Kizuna or personalities.
  • Yuma and Agnum are showed to perform an action called Rival Break when their Kizuna is Eternal Rival.

Field Chat
  • In the field, a party member will say something, including giving an advice.
  • Sometimes it's a question, which you must answer using L1 (YES) or R1 (NO).

  • You can camp at certain places. The places will also act as a save point.
  • Camping will restore all HP and MP.
  • It seems like camping will cut to night time instance where you can talk to a character or Stare (command) at them.

Night Event and Dating
  • Using Stare command, there's a chance that Night Event will occur. This's a chance to develop a relationship. This also applies to two male characters.
  • Night Event can lead to M.O.E.S (Mind Over Emotion System). It's basically question with time limit to answer. Good answers will improve relationship. You can also choose "Do not answer."
  • At the end of a Night Event, there's a chance that you'll be asked for a date. This will also improve the relationship.
  • It appears that personality can trigger a unique event in a date.
