Unleash the Darkness Within Through the Power of the Dark Blast

~ October 25th, 2017 ~


Dark Blast

Unleash the darkness within through the power of the Dark Blast. Fueled by Dark Falz energy, this new form possesses high health and mighty attacks that can alter the course of battle.


As a prerequisite to harnessing this new source of power, you’ll have to clear [EP5: Chapter 2] of the story, or the [Endless Belligerence] Emergency Quest on SH+. Once the condition has been met, the Dark Blast ability will be available to all characters on your account.


The Dark Blast can be set to the sub-palette for quick access, and has an activation gauge that fills as you damage enemies. Save it for just the right moment, as you’ll only have one opportunity to use it per quest.


A unique skill system is available for the Dark Blast that allows you to add abilities and stats by spending EXP earned at the end of quests. Additional features can be unlocked by completing whatever tasks are required for a skill. The pose your character performs when transforming can also be customized.


Ultimate Impact

  • Amasses Photons in both arms to discharge a powerful blast.
  • Can only be used once per transformation.


Darkness Wall

  • Generates a barrier that attracts enemies.


Physical Dash

  • Performs a high speed dash for a limited time.


Bloody Heal

  • Heals both you and your nearby allies.


Dark Blast Training Quest

Test out and hone your newfound powers in the Dark Blast Training Quest!
