The official YouTube channel of the recently launched JRPG, Penny Blood, shared a new English-subtitled interview with the game’s composer, Yoshitaka Hirota. He discusses his songwriting history, creative endeavors, and more.
You can watch the full 8.5 minute interview below:
In Penny Blood, Matthew will explore several corners of the world, such as America, Japan, China and Europe, and meet countless people reacting differently to the new fate. However, “Penny Blood tells the story of a man who must become what he seeks to defeat.”
The world map has a bird’s-eye view, acting as a conduit for players to reach detailed areas that house merchants and countless weird happenings. The fight uses the Psycho Sigil combat system, where players must react to attacks at the right time to maximize damage. Additionally, the Fusion system allows party members to transform and use more destructive skills.
Sanity points are lost when interacting with demons too often, eventually causing allies to succumb to madness. Their common sense deteriorates in favor of vastly increased strength, which may well turn the tide of battle.
