Inti Creates has released a playable demo for Yohane the Parhelion: BLAZE in the DEEPBLUE, their official spinoff of Love Live! Sunshine.
The new Yohane the Parhelion: BLAZE in the DEEPBLUE playable demo is available as part of Steam Next Fest until October 16th, letting players see the early bits of the game.
Here’s a rundown on the game, plus an English version of a previous gameplay trailer:
Yohane the Parhelion is an official anime spin-off of Love Live!! Sunshine. Yohane the Parhelion: BLAZE in the DEEPBLUE is a 2D action game set in that fantasy world.
The player takes control of Yohane as she ventures into a mysterious dungeon alongside her partner Lailaps. She must challenge the monster-infested labyrinth to rescue her missing friends.
As Yohane crafts new equipment from the items she finds and gains the power of her comrades, she’ll be able to explore more and more of the dungeon.
Parts of the dungeon will have randomized layouts, making for a hack & slash action game that stays fresh each time you play it.
When an undersea dungeon suddenly surfaces in the ocean near Numazu, it becomes the talk of the town. Several of Yohane’s curious friends venture inside to investigate. However, not a single one has returned from the labyrinth…
In order to rescue her friends, Yohane herself must brave the depths. She’ll encounter fierce challenges, such as monstrous fish and ever-changing corridors.
Will Yohane be able to rescue her friends and uncover the mystery of the dungeon? In the darkest depths, a ray of sunshine pierces through—
- Hack and slash through a mysterious dungeon – Explore an expansive underwater dungeon. The powers of the items you find and friends you rescue are key to conquering the dungeon. The dungeon contains many secret locations—temples, ruins, and even a sunken ship.
- Random Areas change each visit – Inside the dungeon, you’ll encounter special areas that randomly change their layout. They’ll provide a new and fresh challenge as you explore the dungeon.
- Craft new items with the “Casting” system – As you explore the dungeon and defeat monsters, you’ll collect a variety of materials. Combine these materials to craft new weapons and accessories for Yohane at any time. Over 90 crafting recipes are available!
- All your friends lend their help – Familiar faces from the anime fill out the colorful cast of characters. Bursting with personality, Yohane’s companions lend their aid.
