Genei Ibun Roku #FE details – Chikaomi Tsurugi, more on DLC
Genei Ibun Roku #FE is just over a week away from its Japanese launch. Still, Famitsu is still sharing more information about the game. The magazine’s latest article features a mix of new and old tidbits.
Chikaomi Tsurugi, a newly-revealed character, is voiced by Kosugi Jurota. He is a famous actor shining in Japan’s art history, who is also the father of Yashiro. With thorough training and self-study, he has unmatched acting skills which can do any roles – something he is proud of. He’s the owner of a Performa that exceeds ordinary humans which is the origin of that acting skill.
Story-wise, there was an accident five years ago where everyone including Chikaomi, Yashiro and Tsubasa’s sister Ayaha were swallowed by black mist. However, only Tsubasa alone survived.
The convenience store Heehaw Mart has a secret second clerk (the purple mask one) who is only visible to Mirage Masters, and she sells special items. Other than Tokyo, as previously mentioned, the game will also take place in an alternate world named Idolsphere. While in this world, the GamePad will show the map. Enemies will appear as Symbol Encounters and will cause battles if touched.
Genei Ibun Roku #FE will have a weapon damage system very similar to Fire Emblem, such as the Sword -> Axe -> Spear -> Sword triangle, and Bows being super effective against fliers. Also, Mirages have classes which of course can be promoted by using Master Seals.
Other features from Atlus RPGs are making it into Genei Ibun Roku #FE. There are occult features in the story, partners that are not humans, and session battles where allies keep attacking if an enemy weak point is hit.
Famitsu’s article also has some details about downloadable content. Here’s what we know on that front:
