-An area featuring huge canyon structures.

-A vast, green plateau, featuring a river, a treasure chest and a church towering above the otherwise uninhabited land.
-The home of the Killer Panzer.
-Grasslands inhabited by cows.
-The village in the mountains, where the protagonist can listen to rumors told by old men.
-A town full of rowdies.
-The large town of Trapeta, which has been recently hit by a series of fire incidents.
-The village in the snow fields, where a strong man has been knocked out under mysterious circumstances.
-A forted town built beneath a castle.
-A flourishing town, which currently has to deal with a rebellion.

In addition to this huge list of locations, a new feature of the game's battle system as well revealed. Certain enemies will be capable of merging into a huge, more powerful entity.
