Bilibili HK Limiteda popular developer and general media publisher, has announced that it closed beta for the upcoming gacha RPG Higan: Eruthyll begins from September 1 to 14. Players from the US, Canada, Australia and Malaysia will all be able to participate and can pre-download the game now.
Higan: Eruthyll is a 3D strategy RPG with some card games and auto-battler elements thrown in for good measure. If that sounds like a lot, well, it is, but Higan manages to strike an interesting balance between game mechanics within each of these genres.
See, the stream of gameplay will see your team fighting multiple enemies with 4 members of your team being the front lines. The frontliners are the ones who will fight the most and their cards will be represented in the bottom right. Instantly, each match begins once you’ve set up your characters the way you want them.
From there, all units on the field automatically begin fighting each other. You enter by using a points-based system to use each of your character’s cards to activate their abilities, which can then be aimed and placed correctly to get the most out of each. These abilities can range from large AoE circles to cross-shaped energy beams to healing circles.
It all lines up to make an interesting combat system that lands somewhere between strategy tactics and automatic combat, making Higan an interesting prospect. The story sees you take on the role of leader of the Gopher Troupe, fighting against the Arrival of Fantasyland, while rescuing others from a death-like coma to reclaim reality from nightmarish creatures. So you know, over-the-top anime cutscenes and intensely emotional scenes can be expected in abundance.
If all of that sounds like something you’d like to try your hand at, you can currently pre-download the beta client for Higan: Eruthyll right now at Google Play. No news on the iOS front, but you can follow along official website for more updates!
