Forums - Sony Discussion - Danganronpa team's new RPG "Zanki Zero" sounds awesome! Lots of neat features,

 

 

Spike Chunsoft has updated the official Japanese website for Zanki Zero: Last Beginning with new information on the game’s “Shigabane,” skills, and base camp systems. 

Get the details below.

Shigabane

Clones have a feature called “Shigabane” that grants resistance to their newly Extended bodies depending on the cause and circumstances of their death. Through this Shigabane effect (Shigabane Bonus), cloned humans become strong enough to be reborn.

For example, if you die by the attack of a wild animal, the damage your next body receives from that animal will be reduced. Or if you die by poison, your next body will become less susceptible to poison.

There are also Shigabane applied depending on the circumstances at the time of death, including non-direct causes of death such as “dying by accumulating too much stress” or “dying at an impasse.” Through various types of deaths and repeated ed Extends, cloned humans will gradually become less likely to die, able to explore the ruins even further, and fight against more dangerous enemies.

Skills

The main characters can learn skills by using the skill points acquired when leveling up. The skills that can be learned differ per character, but are mainly divided into three categories—battle, exploration, and crafting. There are also skills for each age group, such as those whose effects are only displayed in childhood.

The skills you learn will not be lost if you die, as they are carried over into your next body after an Extend. Leveling up does not increase your stats, as each age has fixed stats, so character development is done via Shigabane Bonuses and skill acquisition.

Base Camp

By securing materials and expanding the base, you will be able to use new facilities at the base camp. “Reformer Skills” are required in addition to materials in order to expand the base.

By building a workshop, you will be able to manufacture weapons and armor, as well as enhance them. The more you upgrade your facilities, the more powerful the equipment you can produce.

If you build a kitchen, you can cook ingredients. Cooking ingredients increases both their recovery effect and safety, as well as reduces their weight as items.

Zanki Zero: Last Beginning is due out for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita on July 5 in Japan. It is also planned for release on PlayStation 4 and PC in North America and Europe, but a release date has yet to be announced.

I have never played anything from this team. This will be the first.



All the menus, UI, and HUDs definitely scream Danganronpa, looks interesting.



I really want to see how this one turns out, itis definitively an interesting concept.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

It's first person? eww. Never liked the look of first person RPGs. Is it really that hard to show both the enemies and your party?



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Yeah, this is something I don't like either.



I got Dangan vibes from this, which is fine, since that series is excellent. This does look interesting and has the potential to be good I feel.

Visual novel around a trial gameplay like Ace Attorney. The trials are filled with mini games, and the story has strong Battle Royale vibes (but a lot crazier). Awesome games, but might be more difficult if you hate VNs.

 

OT: Waiting for the appearance of Monokuma at the end of Zanki Zero's story : "Actually, you see..."
