With powerful attacks, players will take out the various Noise in locations like Harajuku’s Takeshita Street, Tipsy Tose Hall, and the renowned Shibuya Scramble crossing. Rindo, Fret, Nagi, and Minamimoto all offer different kinds of attacks, allowing players to utilize each character’s unique strengths to twist their opponents into a frenzy.
