Dragon Star Varnir To Release In June on PlayStation 4

Publisher Idea Factory International have announced that Dragon Star Varnir, the latest JPRG-experience from Compile Heart, will be released both digitally and physically on the 14th June 2019 within Europe (as well as 11th June 2019 within North America).

To coincide with this release date announcement Idea Factory International have released new details; including further details of the Three-Tiered Battle System as well as the introduction of the ‘Little Sisters’ gameplay features.

Battle Systems:

  • 3-Tiered Battle System: Players will experience a battlefield that is split into 3 levels: Top, Middle, and Bottom. Players are able to move freely during battle and can position their party members in different formations to achieve additional stat boosts!
  • Traps: Think two steps ahead of your enemy! Plant traps for added damage in battle to defeat those pesky dragons. Once a trap has been placed, players will need to use a physical attack to knockback the enemy into the trap. The physical attack can push up, down, and back into a trap!
  • Dragon Awakening: Attacking an enemy during battle accumulates a character’s Dragon Gauge! Once the Dragon Gauge is maxed out, then a Dragon Awakening will occur, which transforms a character into a powerful being with added stats to defense and attack. If the Dragon Awakening is ignited when a character’s HP is low, it will cause a Rogue Dragon Awakening. In this state, your attack power and escape rate may increase, but your defense will be greatly lowered, so be careful!

Little Sisters:

The “Little Sisters” are separate characters from your main party and they can sometimes award rare skills or items depending on the amount of affection given to them. As Idea Factory International explains each sister will have a satisfaction meter and feeding these characters with dragon meat or blood will award the player with items. Interestingly feeding these Little Sisters will also increase the ‘dragon growth guage’ and once maxed a dragon will be born.

The little sisters are as follows:

  • Faria – The Eager Witch: The oldest of the younger witches in the den. She’s always up for a challenge, and wants to join the elder witches in battle so very badly. She’s very cold towards Zephy and has difficulty being honest with herself.
  • Monet – The Ditzy Witch: A lovable, ditzy witch who is always honest. She lives in the den with the other witches and enjoys taking care of the flowers in the garden.
  • Chiquita – The Catty Witch: A young witch who lives at the den. Her personality is a little strange, and she is very vindictive when talking to people. She loves to explore.
  • Pio – The Wise Witch: A young witch who lives at the den. Despite being the youngest witch, she is the most dependable. She is extremely intelligent and loves to read.

Further information surrounding Dragon Star Varnir can be found on the official website; but in the meantime Dragon Star Varnir will be available both physically and digitally for the PlayStation 4 on the 11th June 2019 (within America) and 14th June 2019 (within Europe).
