Interview

Weekly Famitsu spoke to Hajime Tabata. Here are some bullets:

  • We wanted to draw up a story where the main Type-0 characters follow a different fate. With Type-0 you could personally experience the story together live with other players, and now we’re incorporating that with what I wanted to do in the past on smart phones.
  • It’s a story that can be played repeatedly in cycles, from life to death.
  • You progress the story by chapter, and once it’s finished you can play it again from the beginning.
  • The story will change depending on the votes gathered by a decision system.
  • Plan on transmitting each chapter every two weeks.
  • Within those two weeks, the first 10 days will be solo phase, then the last 4 days will be the team phase.
  • You conduct the mission individually in solo play and then take on the boss in the team play phase.
  • There is a job system, exclusive abilities will depend on the job.
  • Even though play time varies, there are parts that you can play asynchronously together.
  • The system isn’t really about growth, it’s a system you can follow along easily.
  • You can purchase items that replenish power consumed during missions, as well as in game items, abilities, and pay to speed up the time to continue after a mission failure.
  • Tabata says he wants players to download it, whether or not they are familiar with Type-0.
