—Covers Challenge Mode

Defeat the swarm of Covers appearing in the stage with your character. As you progress in the battle, items that enhance your Ketsui level and character status parameters may drop from the defeated enemies. “Covers Challenge” consists of 3 rules for you to challenge:

  • One Minute Challenge: Defeat as many enemies as you can under one minute. In this challenge, enemies may drop items that prolong the time limit, so the key to this challenge is to collect these items as you fight.
  • 100-Man Challenge: A time attack challenge to contest how fast can you defeat 100 enemies. A quick way to experience the thrill of one-vs-many.
  • Endless Battle: Fight for as long as your character stands in this challenge. You can test the limits of your character’s toughness against the throngs of enemies in here.
