In this state, your attack speed and movement speed will increase, the Psychokinesis power will increase, the time it takes to use it will decrease, and you will be able to fight more rapidly.
– Brain Field –
Forbidden power comes with a price
The power of the brain to affect the outside world is increased to the utmost limit, and a special space is developed in which the user’s psychic ability is most advantageous. While the brain field is activated, the user cannot attack with weapons, but can use powerful psychokinetic attacks without limit. On the other hand, because it draws out power beyond the limit, it places a heavy burden on the user, so there is a great risk involved in continuing to use it.
Interaction with characters
Brain messages, which can be exchanged with the brain like e-mail, and conversations in the hideout, will generate episodes for each character. Each character will have their own episode. By completing these episodes, a bond is formed.
By interacting with individual characters, the bond value will increase. The bond level increases when the bond value exceeds a certain level, and the SAS connection abilities will be enhanced, supporting the player in various ways in battle.
You can also increase your bond value by gifting items that are available during gameplay. Give items that match your character’s preferences.
The gifts you give will decorate the character’s personal space, making the interior of your hideout even more impressive!
