Today Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe reached out via press release with a large batch of screenshots and artwork featuring the upcoming anime-inspired game Black Clover: Quartet Knights.
We also get a few pieces of information about gameplay and characters. Those with a melee role will attack using powerful short-range magic. The long-range role is pretty much self-explanatory as well, allowing players to use the environment to their advantage, especially if they find high ground from which to shoot.
Shield-type characters will be able to buff their team-mates, while healers will do pretty much what it says on the tin.
We also get a look at a few established playable characters. Protagonist Asta is a melee fighter. He can run along walls and negate enemy magic. Yuno and Gauche are long-range fighters. The former comes with high airborne mobility, while Gauche is able to strike very effectively from above using his mirror. Noelle is a shield character able to protect her companions from a distance using her fire magic. Mimosa is a healer, able to use “Dream Healing Flower Basket” to do her job, and to trap enemies using “Maiden’s Nursery Bed.”
Black Clover: Quartet Knights will also come with more modes than just 4 vs. 4 deathmatch. For instance, the “Area Controlling Fight” will let players accumulate more magic power when they stand in special magic rings.
The game will launch in both North America and Europe in 2018 for PS4 and PC.
