Gameplay changes[edit]

  • Break Monsters are introduced. They have a dark crystalline appearance to them. So far, they are stated to be "mysterious evil versions of monsters".
  • Instead of the usual three slots allotted for a monster team, there are now four.
  • The hero can also ride around on several different kinds of monsters, using them for transportation.
  • In battle, there is a new "Strategy" command available. Selecting this command offers six different options, such as "Accumulate Tension" or "Use Special Skills". If Tension is accumulated, the attack will be more powerful, and the Scout Gauge will rise more easily.
  • A monster can also be equipped with accessories that raise its capabilities. By handing over materials like shrubs and ores to the accessory shop, accessories are created that offer various effects. Each accessory can have a maximum of three effects.
