Nippon Ichi Software has released new ClaDun Sengoku details and screenshots introducing games characters, facilities in Arcanus Cella, Magic Circles, and more.
Get the information below.
ClaDun Sengoku is set in a world called “Arcanus Cella,” where the protagonist (the player) awakens and the story begins.
From where the protagonist awakens, you meet a mysterious character named “Yukimura,” and from him learn that “Arcanus Cella” is the world of the dead, and in order to escape this world, you must fulfill the dead’s “regrets.”
The protagonist is pressed by Yukimura to release the souls that wander the area by heading out to dungeons that hold clues to their regrets.
The protagonist will safely find the clues of their regrets and return from the dungeons. However, the souls wandering about will not be released. On the contrary, they will return to the form they had while living… the form of a military commander.
Search for the reason why the souls can not be reincarnated, and take on dungeons in order to be reincarnated yourself.
In ClaDun Sengoku, by releasing the souls of those who left behind regrets, your circle of friends will continue to increase.
The first military commander the player meets in “Arcanus Cella.” He explains what Arcanus Cella is and presses players to release the souls of those who left behind regrets.
The wife of a certain Sengoku military commander. She left behind a regret related to “romance.”
A military commander who lost his master due to a certain event and died a regretful death. His motto is to get along well with other military commanders.
A military commander known by the popular name, “One-Eyed Dragon Masamune.” In reality, there is something unknown about the “One-Eyed Dragon,” and that is a regret.
The dungeons of ClaDun Sengoku resemble Japan’s Sengoku period, and are connected to the military commanders who have become souls.

■ Story Base: “Arcanus Cella”
As the base of the story, “Arcanus Cella” has various facilities that you can use to prepare for dungeons and customize your character.
At the “Everything Shop,” you can buy and trade weapons, armor, shields, as well as artifacts and stone walls, which are items necessary to strengthen your character.
In the “Temple” lives owls who speak the words of various people. The owls provide the player with character creation, painting, and other features helpful to your adventure.
New System: Suggestion Box
At the “Suggestion Box,” you can receive requests from the inhabitants of Arcanus Cella. By doing requests, you can earn Gane (money) and fame, as well as obtain rare items.
New System: Blacksmith
At the “Blacksmith,” you can attach new “titles” to your weapon by forging them again. With a title attached, you can increase the equipment’s original status, adding “ATK +20” or “Vassal HP +10”-like effects.
New System: Castle Construction
In “Arcanus Cella,” there is a “Castle.” Using the stone walls you can buy at the “Everything Shop,” you can construct your own castle. By fitting in these stone walls and building the castle, you can enhance the abilities of your General (player character). Additionally, by making building additions, you can increase the castle’s size and fit in even more stone walls.
■ Magic Circle
The Magic Circle is a system where you can power up your General with the support of “Vassals.” While fighting in the dungeon, Vassals will act as shields to protect the General from taking damage. In this update, we will introduce the “Artifacts” that can do things such as increase your stats and strengthen your magic.
When you arrange Vassals on the Magic Circle, you can place adjoining items called “Artifacts” in the boxes. Artifacts inject Vassals with a hidden power known as “Mana.” Artifacts have many useful effects—they can raise statuses such as attack power and HP, decrease the amount of SP consumed when using magic or techniques, increase stats when you level-up, and more. By forming your Magic Circle, since the type of Artifacts you can arrange vary, you can discover a play style all your own.
Some Magic Circles will have boxes known as “Awakening Boxes.” They are activated by using the “Awakening” technique in the dungeon, the displayed “Mana” will be added, and the next connecting Artifact will activate. During Awakening, because you obtain the effects of many more Artifacts than normal, your stats will significantly increase. The Awakening technique effects last for a fixed amount of time, so take advantage of it to unleash your hidden power.
Among the Artifacts that can strengthen the “Magic” action command, there are those with the “Attendant” title. If you use Artifacts marked with this title, magic becomes “Prohibited Magic Treatment,” and its power jumps. However, when you activate this magic, it is possible to damage both enemies and allies, so you must be cautious.
■ More Unseen Military Commanders and the EX Dungeon
In ClaDun Sengoku, in addition to the military commanders you befriend through the story, there are various other military commanders’ souls wandering Arcanus Cella. Different from the story dungeons, you can take on “EX Dungeons” to release their souls and befriend them. There are a total of 50 military commanders you can befriend.
