  1. My guess on the "Jet Boots Strike?" skill is probably about being able to swap from T-ATK from S-ATK. Dunno if right or wrong, but it's a possibility.

    Though, I'm curious as to what the descriptions of the gear skills are for the weaps :]

  2. That swishy AoE spiral kick attack reminds me a lot of the speed Nanoblast combo from PSPo2I.

    I swear I saw a 'Heal Bonus' skill scroll by on the Bouncer tree, behind the captions. Just the skill name, though.

    1. So that setting would automatically translate the description, when it never has before?

      And I'm sure Nico Nico Live staff didn't write an English description for the stream themselves.

  3. Ultimate mode looks crazy. It's finally time for some enemy element resistances, give us a reason to pick something other than light element weapons already!

  4. I never really noticed how subtly different Nova's graphical style was until I saw those three NPCs redone for it. They have this weird uncanny valley-like sort of feel to them where you recognize who they are but are totally aware that something's a bit off too.

  5. Matoi is now a part of arks? Does this mean she has a partner card now? Can i have it!?!?
    also loving that new Quna song that looks awsome.
