~ Altago Archives ~
With the historic war between Altago and Romn having just reached a reluctant ceasefire, the mercantile port of Altago is now open to foreign visitors for the first time in ages . Never ones to waste such an opportunity, Dogi and I immediately set off for this new frontier, and knew we’d come to the right place when our transport passed a half-sunken shrine just offshore . Rumors abound of massive beasts, uniquely powerful weapons, ruins dating back to antiquity, and even ancient dragons! And now, we have been afforded the opportunity to investigate this land for ourselves...

~ Battle System ~
Slash, Strike and Pierce your way to victory! Switch among more than seven playable characters and wield the attacks that best suit each enemy: Slashes are most effective against plants and enemies with soft, fleshy bodies. Strikes are brutal and most effective against enemies with a hard outer shell. Pierce attacks are delivered at high speed and are most effective against agile, flying enemies.
Once your EXTRA Gauge is full, each character has his/her own unique EXTRA Skill. The gauge will refill automatically, but hitting enemies will fill it faster. Use EXTRA Skills on bosses, amidst large packs of enemies, or to finish off a long combo string with style.
Guard at the exact moment of impact to perform a Flash Guard. You'll take no damage and your Skill & EXTRA Gauges will receive a sudden boost. Your next attack will be a guaranteed CRITICAL HIT.
~ Skills, Combos, and Support Abilities ~
Skills are associated with weapons, so when a weapon is unequipped you'll lose the use of that particular skill. However, when a skill LEVELS-UP from 0 to 1, the user will learn it permanently! Skills that have been learned can be freely attached or removed, without the need to equip a weapon containing that skill. As a result, you'll be able to set 2 or more skills at the same time for each character.
As you successfully attack enemies, your Skill Gauge fills up. You can equip Skills to one of four attack buttons which drain from your Skill Gauge when used. Once you've mastered several Skills, imagine the combo possibilities having four equipped skills in addition to your standard attack and EXTRA Skill!
Don't forget, you can instantly switch among your three active party members at any time, creating endless combo opportunities! Be creative and have fun!
As you progress through the story, each character will gain a Support Ability that passively benefits the entire party. The ability never changes for each character, but as that character levels up, so too does the Support Ability. So for example, Adol's support is an increased hit rate, Dogi's support is an increased stun rate against enemies, and Elk's support grants greater gold drops from defeated enemies. An active party with these three characters will gain all three Support Abilities!
~ Shops & Synthesizing ~
You can buy, sell, or 'Synthesize' items at shops throughout the game. Simply talk to the shopkeeper when you're ready to begin! You'll collect materials from defeated monsters or from Harvest Points, and these can be used to create newer, stronger items than the ones normally available. Many items can only be obtained by Synthesizing. Some materials are incredibly rare, so be sure to synthesize wisely!
~ Side Quests ~
Characters from all corners of Altago may ask you for help. These requests range from deliveries and finding harvest points to slaying specific enemies and solving regional mysteries. For the majority of these quests, you're expected to obtain and complete them before a certain point in the game, so be thorough when speaking with townsfolk.
