A few weeks ago, Masaya Games and Extreme update the official website for Langrisser: Re:Incarnation -Tensei-, and added tons of details and screenshots for the game. Thanks to it, we now know a bit more about how battles work in the game. It’s actually pretty straightforward: you take control of the commander at the start of stage, work toward clearing the objective requirements, and then move on to the next stage.
Before the battle starts, you can check out in which order the various characters will take their turn, which is something quite important to keep in mind. Each class has its own characteristics, and don’t attack at the same time:
– Healer classes: have higher action order (which means they get to take their turn earlier);
– Cavalier: they have a quit lot of mobility, so even if they take their turn later, they can travel further;
– Mercenaries: they’re pretty fast, and get to take their turn at the same time as Healer classes.
In the parameter screen, you can find various bits of information:
– the usual stats (attack, defense, range, etc.);
– how your currently-selected unit fares again other classes;
– topography effects;
– info on support, and more.
Before you start attacking, you get a screen on which you can check out your enemy: it’s pretty handy to see if they’re stronger than you, if they have any advantage over you, and more. That way, you will be able to avoid picking up the wrong unit to fight a specific enemy.
Just like in the vast majority of RPGs (let alone Strategy-RPG), you get experience points, money and items (if the enemy was equiped with one) after each victory in battle. Of course, your characters can level up once they get enough XP for that, and when they reach level 10, they can change classes.
If you win a battle, you get to the results screen… but if you lose, you go straight to the title screen! Apparently, you get some bonus money for each unit still alive after the battle, with the total amount doubled if you didn’t let a single one die.
Yesterday, two additional characters were revealed:
– Autocrat 4-sei (voiced by Okitsu Kazuyuki)
– Luclecia Oliflam (voiced by Misato Fukuen)
