KOEI TECMO America today shared new information regarding the demon-fuelled abilities available to players in their upcoming demon-centric adventure, Nights of Azure. Developed by the studio behind the long-running Atelier series, GUST, Nights of Azure features a protagonist, Arnice, who can shift into various demon forms and even create and summon demonic allies.
These demonic helpers, known as Servans, are a diverse and lively cast that act as healers, attackers, defenders, tricksters, followers, and mages. She can upgrade and equip her Servans at the Hotel, her base of operations, and take on a team of up to four to help her complete a mission’s objectives. Each Servan has a unique, quirky personality, so GUST and KOEI TECMO believe it will be entertaining to see how they react when teamed up with others.
As you organize your team, you also need to consider their “Transformation factor”, which determines the form Arnice will take when she transforms into a demon. She can shift into five different forms, which are dependent on the sum of the transformation factor attributed to her Servans.
The basic form, Demon Form, gives her the power to manipulate fire. Rabbit Form lets her move at an unnatural speed. Phantom Form turns her into a blue sharpshooter, allowing her to strike her foes from a distance. Armor Form, perhaps one of the strongest forms, is a well-balanced form that increases both Arnice’s offensive and defensive attributes. Finally, her Nightmare Form allows her to transform into an overpowering demonic creature.
Check out a new trailer showing off these transformations below:
