Dragon Cores are obtained by using the "devour" skill on an enemy dragon. Once devoured, the Dragon Core becomes available, granting the player access to a new skill tree with unique abilities. There are 126 different combinations of Dragon Cores for the player to experiment with, giving them a great deal of freedom.

Giant Boss Battles, as the name implies, are battles against gigantic foes. In these battles, the boss takes up all three tiers of the battlefield. Players can target specific body parts in order to disable them, and even knock the boss out for a temporary advantage.

Idea Factory also released three new character profiles, which you can check out below.


A no-nonsense witch who has a ditzy side.

It's often difficult to tell if she's acting out of logic or haste.

She is afraid death is quickly approaching due to her passing the average age of the elder witches.

She loves to cook, but her unique cooking style can produce... interesting results.

She's graceful but always looks melancholic.

She holds the magical power of clairvoyance and can see the sad future of those she touches so she hates her power.

She does not want to be involved with people that she does not trust.

She is especially intimidated by men.

Dragon Star Varnir


A mysterious witch who claims to be a terrible witch of legend.

According to her, she is the one behind the massacre known as the Carnival of Death in which she took the lives of 100 witches a decade ago.
