posted on by Karen Ressler
Square Enix began streaming the fist gameplay video for its upcoming School of Ragnarok arcade game on Thursday. The video features a battle between a player character using Ivol de Dacart (voiced by Natsuki Hanae) and a player character using Balharades (Fumihiko Tachiki).
The game will allow players to customize avatars, become a student at one of the game's schools, and then battle other players' avatars. Depending on the school, the players' weapons and "school guardian" will change. Magical Girl Smile Heart (Nao Toyama) is the third currently-announced guardian, in addition to Ivol de Dacart and Balharades.
Square Enix is aiming to release the "next dimension online 1 vs 1 tactical 5D action" arcade game sometime in 2015. Mistwalker's Kimihiko Fujisaka will design the characters, and Monaca's Keiichi Okabe will compose the music. Square Enix game producer Takamasa Shiba and Spike Chunsoft game scenario-writer Kazutaka Kodaka are also involved in the project.
