Atlus has shared a new trailer for The Alliance Alive.
Featured above, the new trailer introduces the characters Gene, Rachel, and Tiggy.
Here’s the newly introduced characters:
- Gene, a signimancer which is a special type of mage that uses artifacts to wield magic, who belongs to the Signimancy Guild. He tends to look at the big picture and avoids acting emotionally. He is valued by the Daemons for his knowledge and eloquence.
- Rachel, a mercenary employed by the Signimancy Guild. She’s the opposite of Gene, with a fiery temperament, impulsively acting as soon as an idea pops into her head. She often argues with Gene because of their contrasting viewpoints. Though they argue, Gene and Rachel do set their views aside to fight for the cause.
- Tiggy, a young girl researching the global threat called the “Dark Current.” She calls herself “The Genius Professor” and has used her intellect to create strange inventions. Don’t underestimate these inventions just because of their silly animal looks … monsters can’t stand against them!
Here’s a rundown on the game, via Atlus:
One thousand years ago, Daemons invaded the world of Humans
They subjugated Humanity and created the Great Barrier to separate the realms. The world was thrown into upheaval, and the Dark Current was born. It carved a cross-shaped swath across the ocean, swallowing countless cities in its wake. Humanity was decimated. Hundreds of years later, Daemons rule atop a hierarchical society. However, the time for resistance has come. The world is about to change yet again…
Crafted by Legendary Talent
