UnchainBlades Rexx: Why Charisma Matters
More info on the gameplay!
04.18.11 - 7:22 PM

Charisma is a strangely powerful attribute, and UnchainBlades Rexx is making it a vital stat in its gameplay. Throughout the game, you'll control Fang, who was once a dragon, but is now human. He's pretty full of himself and with a name like Fang, we really wouldn't expect anything less. Fang can have a party filled with four demi humans; each party member can have up to four followers a piece, so a grand total of twenty characters can head into battle. Various monsters will attack you during dungeons, but the best part is that you can then recruit these monsters into followers. This is where all that charismatic charm comes in, if you're stat is high enough, you can convince these monsters to join your side.

But, wait, that's not all! Charisma also plays a great role in how well your characters will perform in battle. At the end of each battle, you'll be able to converse with your followers. If your answers please the follower, you will increase their mood. This functions well for increasing your chances of executing a synchro attack. With this move, your followers link up with one of your attacks. Followers function greatly in helping unlock strategic link skills. They might even go as far as to sacrfice themselves as a shield to protect your character from taking damage.

This sounds rather promising as UnchainBlades Rexx is clearly trying to step outside the box with its gameplay! Time will only tell, and we'll provide more details as they come.
