LP and MP, MIND Guard, and MIND Break detailed.

Acquire and Zerodiv have provided first details on Mind 0‘s “stylish MIND battle” system. The heroes of the upcoming PS Vita RPG utilize Persona-like counterparts called Mental Inside Nobody Dolls—or MIND, for short—during combat.

LP and MP

Two of the player’s three gauges:

  • Life Points (LP): Indicates the physical strength of the player.
  • MIND Points (MP): Indicates the MIND energy of the player.

High Attack Power

When your MIND is summoned, unlike normal attacks, you will be able to deal a greater amount of damage to enemies.

MIND Guard

When your MIND is summoned, your LP will decrease as you fight and hold back enemies. Your MP will also decrease.

MIND Break

When your MP falls to zero, “MIND Break” will be invoked and the summoned MIND will have no further turns. If an enemy unleashes a powerful attack, you could be in a pinch depending on the situation.

    So summoning your MIND drains your HP in addition to your MP. That sounds like it could make the game ball-bustingly hard at the beginning when your HP and cash levels are low. You would only be able to use your MIND in short bursts, and most of your money will be spent on HP recovery potions/items. Sounds challengingly fun. Just hope it’s not frustrating.

    can we have Mind Crush and Mind Fuck O__O

    so MP acts like a stamina bar huh?

    awesome stuff.

    im pump for this!!!

      When ‘MIND Fuck’ happens, do they characters get to have sex with their MINDS? :P

      It can… uhh, recharge their powers! Yeah, that’s it… Make it happen, Acquire!

      EDIT: No, wait. That would be a bad idea for that detective guy…

        Lol, all I can think of is the dead prez song ‘mind sex’

      I wonder how this mechnic will play like. If there is a demo, I will try it out and make my purchase (and pleas for localization) based off a demo.

    Mm. I really hope somebody hops on this. Xseed’s got a full plate right now, so maybe Aksys?

  • Tetsu

    Wait, Acquire? Gung Ho Online owns Acquire, and they have a US branch. I think we have a pretty high chance of seeing this here in the west! :D

  • Eclipse

    The battle-system sounds like it’ll have a nice bit of a challenge to it.

    I’m pretty much sold on this, so I’ll pre-order a copy as soon as it’s listed.

    Sounds hardcore; reminds me of Baroque, and how when the stamina bar ran out your LP just got eaten up A.S.A.P. Really challenging game, but a very satisfying one also; could dig that in a more traditiional RPG design.
