About Rondo of Swords
The King of Bretwalde is dead. His passing, both unexpected and unusual, leaves the kingdom in distress. As one realm
mourns, another readies for war; the Grand Meir Empire, intent on conquering the world, prepares to strike the empty
throne. Taken by surprise, the army of Bretwalde collapses under the vicious assault, and the capital city of Egvard is quick to
fall. Only Spanta, the sacred blade, can spare the kingdom of its fate. Free it of its curse and restore honor and peace to the
land!

Key Features
• Unique combat system – Use route maneuvers to hit all enemies in your path and enhance your attack or defense. Manage your
Momentum Counter to gain stat bonuses and control who your enemies target!
• Deep party management system – With the Errand System, you have the option to send idle party members off to run errands or
go on quests to level up on their own, which will become crucial to your party's survival in later stages.
• Customizable skill options – Skills are not just skills, but dynamic strategic devices that you choose to build or not. Use skill points
to either buy more skills or strengthen what you have!
