Watch our developer diary #3 to better understand the relationship the characters of Mind Zero have with the otherworldly beings known as MINDs!

Gripping, Otherworldly Tale

Precarious situations quickly befall Kei and his group of friends as they soon find themselves inexplicably whisked away to a mysterious weapon shop. There they meet an undertaker whose payment for strange, otherworldly weapons may require more than they’re willing to offer! As they progressively delve further into the "Inner Realm," a spiritual plane that is connected to our "Outer Realm," it becomes apparent that the two worlds are more than just connected: the events of one affect the other!

Intense, Risk-Reward Battle System

Each turn, players will find themselves challenged to balance the use of each character’s MIND. MINDs are spiritual beings who act as shields and are generally more powerful than the characters themselves, but should a character run out of Mind Points while using one, they will be left temporarily vulnerable. Continue your MIND onslaught against the strange spirits of the Inner Realm, or take a more defensive stance and recharge your Mind Points? The choice is yours, but choose carefully!

Hauntingly Atmospheric World

All manner of demons, spirits, and creatures of Japanese mythology await you in the unsettlingly dark dungeons of the Inner Realm. Music with a ghostly tinge accompanies you on your journey as you leave the familiar behind. Always prepare for the worst, because in Mind Zero you never know what sort of vicious demons could be lurking nearby!

•    Dual audio support: Japanese and English!
