With these new options added, photo mode does more than just take screenshots the way you typically see them. You can add all sorts of artistic touches and tinker to your heart’s content to get that perfect in-game shot. By the way, you’ll start out with a few color filters, but you can unlock more by meeting special conditions throughout the game! Check out the “Orders” section of your Legatus Menu for more details.

When we first decided to add a photo mode to the game, it was just a tool for taking cool screenshots. But as development continued, it took on another role! If you snap a picture of a new character, enemy, or location, their information will be added to the Neuron database for you to browse at your leisure. It’s one way to learn a lot more about the world of ASTRAL CHAIN!
