Additional Playable Characters: Empress & Warrior


This downloadable content unlocks the Empress and Warrior as playable characters.

The daughter of the Dragonblood Clan's chief. She bears the mark of the Astral Dragon, the Dragonscar, on her arm.

Through her contract with the Astral Dragon Atruum, the power of the dragon now resides in her arm, giving her numerous special powers.

In addition to her natural proficiency with swords, she can shoot fireballs from the Dragon Arm and turn it into a giant blade to deal heavy damage to enemies.

She can also turn the Dragon Arm into a makeshift wire to grab onto special hooks and swing.

A young man of the Dragonblood Clan. He bears the Dragonscar on his chest.

His contract with Atruum imbued his chest with the dragon's power, strengthening his body and giving him excellent defense.

By concentrating power into the Dragon Body, he can deploy an impregnable shield that protects nearby allies from harm and heals them over time.

He can also enter a berserk state, which enables him to use devastating new attacks and increases his attack power, but drastically lowers his defense.

Additional Playable Characters: Shinobi & Witch


This downloadable content unlocks the Shinobi and Witch as playable characters.

A young man in the Dragonblood Clan. He bears the Dragonscar on his legs.

The power of the Astral Dragon Atruum allows him to use his powerful legs for both offense and enhanced movement.

The Shinobi is capable of wall jumps, hovering mid-air, double jumps and the special Dragon Dash. He combines these movement options with attacks using his Dragon Legs to deal massive damage to enemies.

When he collides with an enemy using the Dragon Dash, he will lock-on to them for a short time, causing all of his attacks to deal more damage and automatically home-in on his target.

A young woman in the Dragonblood Clan, and also said to be the clan's last magic user. She bears the Dragonscar on her head.

Atruum's power is imbued into her hair, strengthening the magic power she uses by incanting a variety of spells.

The Witch is able to use the dragon's power to further enhance her magic, putting her into a trance-like state where she can unleash a spell multiple times with only one incantation. Few foes can withstand a skillfully unleashed onslaught of her magic.

Her magic is not only limited to attacks. She can also act in a support role, creating platforms in mid-air, illuminating dark areas, and healing her allies.
