Featuring a variety of engaging battle tactics!
Connect pieces and get combos, unleashing more and more skills! Use a skill when the boss tries their special move. Get the timing just right, and you’ll perform a “Payback”!
- More combos mean you can use skills more frequently! Connect skill pieces to unleash more skills, or connect heart pieces to recover HP? The order of combos is the key to success.
- Keep an eye on your HP! Keep those combos coming quick! Your enemy continues to attack you while you move pieces. You’ll have to keep an eye on your HP and decide whether to start combos or to wait it out. Be prepared!
- Use “Payback” against a boss’s special move! Unleash a skill to counter a boss’s special move, increasing your skill effect and inflicting even greater damage. Make full use of every opportunity!
Choose your difficulty!
If an enemy stands in your way and you can’t seem to defeat them, try using the coin pieces you’ve collected to train Mirai further before taking on the enemy once more!
