EXP of The Irregular at Magic High School Reloaded Memory
The Irregular at Magic High School Reloaded Memory
SQUARE ENIX's new mobile phone work The Irregular at Magic High School Reloaded・Memory (iOS / Android) will be officially launched in Japan on June 28, 2022 (Tue).
This work is a magic battle RPG based on the animation Irregular in Magic High School adapted from the original novel. In addition to being able to group these characters from the original work to fight in the game, you can also see the storyline of past animations in full voice, as well as the new original plot supervised by the original author Sajima.
This time, I was fortunate to get the chance to play this game before the official launch. The following is the game content that I came across during the demo.
Review the original plot in full voice
It is also worth looking forward to the new original plot supervised by the original author
This work can be divided into original quests that follow the content of the animated version.
And you can experience the development of the new original quest supervised by the original author, Sajima, and the whole story is presented in full voice.
The original quest is played from the first episode of the anime. His older brother Shiba Tatsuya who entered the No. 1 High School affiliated to the National Magic University as an inferior student (second-degree student), but hides his powerful strength, lives in school with his sister Shiba Miyuki who is an honor student. Even those who haven't touched the original work can experience the plot direction of the animation through this work, and fans can also take this opportunity to review the outline of the work.
The original level Hida Takayama Arc is a story related to the magical technology product Sacred Relic (Relic) of an unknown civilization.
Miyuki's friend, Hoika Mitsui, was on her way to the bookstore to make a report, when Tatsuya was traveling with them and was suddenly attacked by an unidentified group. Although the attackers were successfully repelled, they also escaped. The enemy finally used the magatama (にのまがたま) sacred relic with the function of preserving magic. When Tatsuya heard that the props seemed to be excavated from the outskirts of Hida Takayama, he set off to investigate Mount Norikura.
Hida Takayama Arc is a follow-up to the original work, or the story level Yokohama Riot Arc in chronological order, but there is no problem in understanding it if you start from the new original level first.
The official said that the new original level will continue to update new plots every month, and will also add new original limited supplementary content.
In the demo, I saw a new original game character who is good at ancient magic, Takayama Hina (たかやま ひな) will also meet you.
An automatic battle method with cool magic performance as the main charm
This work is based on the interactive way of story link and battle link, interspersed with multiple battle levels between each plot. During the battle, players can team up with up to 3 characters to break the level. During the battle, the characters will automatically attack, and can use the automatic and double-speed functions. If you want to concentrate on the fun of the plot, you can use these functions to break the level quickly. Of course, magic (skill) attacks and super combo Ultimate arts (hereinafter UA) can also be adjusted to be activated manually. Activate your skills at the right time to make level strategy easier.
The characters are divided into 3 different combat styles: tank, attacker and support. When forming a team, putting each character into the team can maintain the basic balance.
When an ally's normal attack hits, a charge meter of ultimate magic will gradually accumulate. The moment UA is activated, the voice performance of each character's strength will be displayed, as well as a very eye-catching handsome picture.
The magic show presented by 3DCG is also not to be missed.
After a certain period of time, the gauge in the upper right corner of the screen is full, and when you reach MAX, you can activate Reloaded Mode. Entering this state, the cooldown of all magic will be refreshed immediately, and the filling speed of PP and the speed of magic re-chant will be increased. In addition, it has the effect of increasing attack power, which is a great opportunity to continuously use magic to deal high damage.
Enemy units will display their weakness color, and use the magic attack of the corresponding color to deal 1.5 times the damage. When forming a formation, you must first confirm the recommended color of the level (that is, the so-called weakness attribute), which can make the battle situation more favorable.
The recommended color can be confirmed in advance on the battle preparation screen.
In addition, powerful enemies in boss battles will launch a powerful attack called Fatal Cast. In order to prevent this damage, you must use magic to deal a certain amount of damage and put the boss into a BREAK state. After a successful BREAK, the Chant Gauge required to activate Fatal Cast will be reduced by one bar, causing the boss to temporarily stop moving. Take the opportunity to defeat them now.
The ◇ printed gauge below the BOSS name is the chant gauge, and the red bar on the right side is the gauge required for the attack to enter the break. Use status-changing magic or UAs with action-restricting effects that can be very helpful in reducing the BREAK gauge.
The card drawing system of this work can draw characters used in battle, as well as support cards that are equipped on the body to enhance the character's abilities. Even if the same character is obtained, it will have different ability values according to the difference in RANK or shape. Characters with higher RANK will naturally have better performance. In addition, characters with the same name will have team restrictions that cannot be grouped together. For example, it is not possible to form the strongest fantasy team just by using Tatsuya Shiba.
However, another magic equipment slot that can be equipped on a character and can be used as the main magic in battle can be equipped on a different character of the same name, or on a sub-character that is purely used for strengthening abilities.
When the second or more characters and support cards are obtained, the characters will be converted into U coins, and the support cards will be converted into A coins. These coins are props that can be used to improve unit grade and assist grade, and can greatly increase the ability value of characters and support cards, which is the so-called limit-breaking factor.
If you want to develop a character, use materials to increase the level, and increase the level cap are all indispensable elements. There are also special levels in the game where you can collect growing materials, so upgrading should not be a big problem. Using the quick-repeated coupons, you can also quickly return to the levels you have won, and the material collection side is also a relatively relaxed feeling.
After the bond level (bond LV) between each character and the player is increased, you can also watch the bond story. The way to improve the bond is to win the battle. The characters that are grouped in the main position of the team can get the bond value, and the bond level can be increased after accumulating to a certain level. Raising the bond level also has many benefits such as strengthening the character's basic ability value and obtaining specific rewards. So bring your favorite characters as much as possible to earn as many victories as possible.
