There are now more details of Bandai Namco’s BC Project, which was revealed at the end of last year with a teaser trailer.
The game focuses on teams of four with each character playing a specific role. Melee will utilise aggressive magic for high damage, there’s Range for distance, Barrier will “raise abilities” of teammates, and finally a Healer with healing magic. A few of the characters have also been revealed as follows:
- Asta, a Melee character, is really good at wall running and can eliminate the magic set by enemies with one swing!
- Yuno and Gauche both have a Range role. Yuno has high mobility in the air whilst Gauche performs high-firing and long-range shooting from advantageous positioning by teleporting using a mirror.
- Noelle is a Barrier Healer type character and features a high fire power magic to protect teammates.
- Mimosa is a recover healer character fighting with various magic such as range recovery magic “Dream Healing Flower Basket” and trap magic “Maiden’s nursery bed”.
Bandai Namco stress this is more than a team 4v4 battle game. There will be different modes such as “Area Control Fight where teams accumulate magical powers in the magical rings” where “Battles will become more strategical especially with the abilities of each playable character.” It sounds exactly like a typical 4v4 battle game in other words but with anime characters.
There’s still no definitive release date for BC Project but it is coming out this year. Here are a whopping 30 screens to digest.
