Namco Bandai Games releases Lost Heroes for the 3DS and PSP on September 6th. Along with its main visual, we've got details on the subcharacters you can summon as assists in battle, and more!
In Lost Heroes, you build a party of four from a roster of 15 Gundam, Ultraman, and Kamen Rider characters and delve the depths of a dungeon. As you level up heroes old and new, battles get more and more exciting!
Main visual released!
The 15 Lost Heroes, bereft of their power, are beset by a dark force. Can they unravel the truth of their situation and return to their own worlds?
Ride Dungeons and Ride Battles revealed!
Ride Dungeons are dungeons too risky to traverse on foot which can only be entered on 'Ride Machine' battleships. Encountering a 'Guardian' foe triggers a 'Ride Battle', making even movement nervewracking!
In Ride Battles, triggered when you touch a wandering Guardian, the heroes take on their foe from behind the wheel of their Ride Machine!
When the Ride Machine's armor reached 0, it's defeated, and when its energy reaches 0 its actions are severely limited. Enemy attacks can also damage specific portions of the Ride Machine, lowering associated stats.
New info on 'Chips' and 'Force'!
Enemies drop 'Chips' when defeated, which are redeemable at bases for Force.
Force comes in two types, one which unlocks skills and one which powers effects. Characters can equip up to six total, as long as it's within their force capacity.
No two heroes can have the same Force equipped, so be careful with your party balance! Customize your party to your heart's content by choosing who gets which Force. Collect Chips to unlock more Forces!
Chips can also be earned during events, and put together whenever you're at base.
Subcharacters join the battle with Assists!
Story subcharacters can join in battles as Assists. Assists are part of the Force system, so they can be unlocked by collecting Chips.
■ Create and upgrade your own equipment with gear synthesis!
Items can be created and upgraded up to five times via synthesis, boosting character stats when equipped.
Special effects are inherited through synthesis, letting your customize your gear!
Combine 'Tomorrow's Briefs' and a 'Vacuum Tube' to create 'Tomorrow's Briefs +1'. Equip them and boost your stats!
Take down enemies with their elemental weaknesses!
Enemies can have weak and strong points. Adapt your tactics to the enemy your face for victory.
