Story

The story mode will be set in an entirely new location and split between three branches: Chronophantasma, Six Heroes and Sector Seven. Eventually these three branches will be tied into one True End.

New Characters

Amane Nishiki

An androgynous young male dressed in a pink kimono arming himself with a long pink scarf. His drive move is known as Spiral which transforms his scarf into a drill used to fight against opponents.

Azrael

A member of Sector Seven with inordinately high strength, he seeks out worthy adversaries and will attack anyone on the battlefield, friend or foe, to quench his thirst for battle. His drive move is known as The Terror which points out weak points when attacking the opponent.

Bullet

Part of a mercenary group that looks to oppose Sector Seven. She was raised and trained by the mercenary group from a young age so she fights from battlefield to battlefield. When her entire squad was wiped out, she decided to travel the world and find the one responsible to avenge their deaths. Her drive move is known as Lock On, allowing her to quickly target her opponent and grab them.

Izayoi

The "True Form" of Tsubaki Yayoi after breaking free from the Imperator's control by releasing the powers within her Sealed Weapon, Izayoi. Her drive is Scarlet Justice, which increases the speed and power of all her special attacks in "Gain Art Mode."

Kagura Mitsuki

Known as "The Black Gale" or "The Black Knight." The leader of the Imperator's Palace Guard, the supreme general of the NOL, and the head of the powerful Mutsuki family within the Duodecim. Kagura seeks to take the Imperator's position and become head of the Library himself. Carries a giant sword and can throw mini-black holes at enemies.

Yuuki Terumi

One of The Six Heroes long before he was trapped within The Boundary and became the man known as Hazama. A much faster and more sadistic version of Hazama with less range, but not to be taken lightly.

Kokonoe

The daughter of the Heroes Jubei and Nine. Capable of summoning a jet hammer and similar items from hammerspace to attack her enemy.

Returning Characters

Overdrive

A new game mechanic introduced into Chrono Phantasma, Overdrive is activated when a player is at low health and provides extra abilities and for certain characters power ups when activated. It builds up over time and activates using A + B + C + D, the lower the health the longer it will last, and freezes the timer when in use.
