He then awakens in a new version of Tokyo, one ravaged by an apocalypse known as Da’at. In order to overcome the perils that await, he becomes a Nahobino that is neither human nor demon.
In this new form, players will be able to pinpoint enemy weaknesses and perform consecutive actions with the Press Turn Battle System. In addition, players can recruit foes using negotiations, and can then fuse them to fit your custom playstyle from there.
