Hot on the heels of yesterday’s localization announcement for Sony Japan’s upcoming PS Vita RPG Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines, Famitsu this week offers new details on the game’s handful of systems. (As with all of today’s other Famitsu-related news, our sources have censored certain information due to the magazine not releasing until Thursday.)
Two character classes that can be used in battle in the game have been revealed to include a soldier who fights long-distance with a cannon, as well as another type that attacks head-on and has high evasion stats. Additionally, the previously revealed Nueko is in an exclusive class of her own, the Summoner, which enables her to call spirits to her side and command them to do her bidding.
Some of the activities that can be done related to travels in foreign provinces have also been detailed. Such activities include leading expeditions, having offspring with members of other families, adopt people from other families, and hire mercenaries for a limited stretch of time.
Additional tidbits also emerged about how players will go about advancing their lineage to the next generation. In line with series tradition, descendants are created in dealings with gods. But in this game, the player can choose which god to use in that process after liberating them, although specific details beyond that haven’t been made known.
Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines is due out for PS Vita in Japan on July 17. The North American and European release dates have not yet been announced.
