Get the video and full English transcript below.
Hey there, how’ve you been? I’m Ringo of Aion. This is the fourth Summoner’s Guide, a program that teaches you how to be a Devil Summoner. Make sure to follow along, okay?
First things first, have you seen the video about me and Figue that was released the other day? I’ve got even more info for you today.
I’m sure you know this by now, but I’m Ringo, an agent of Aion. I was recently born to prevent the world from coming to an end, and I’m still in the process of learning about humans. I’d love to learn more about all of you. It wouldn’t be fair if this is a one-way deal, so I’ll tell you about me first.
My COMP has some special characteristics. It’s usually a katana type, but can transform into a gun-type COMP during a Sabbath. I’m pretty good with Electricity and Almighty skills. I also have high offensive power, so you can count on me as an attacker. I even plan on learning skills that let me expand the number of a demon’s skill slots. I’m sure it’ll come in handy, so be sure to give it a try.
Moving on to Figue, the other agent who was born at the same time as me. I guess you could say she’s kind of like a sister to me. Figue is the careful and dependable type, unlike me. She helps us out by providing intel among other things, which suits her perfectly.
Her analytical skills make her a good fit for a support role. She scouts dungeons for enemies using her owl-type drone named Mimi. Pretty cute, don’t you think? Mimi alerts us when enemies appear and lets us know when demons out on Demon Recon are nearby, so be sure to pay attention.
And…what else is there… Oh yeah… Her favorite food is taiyaki! She’ll get mad at me if I blab too much, so you should talk to her directly. Please look after my adorable Figue!
In order to pass down the will of Aion to the two of us, Flamma was born. Flamma just tells us what we need to know in a matter-of-fact way, but she could be a bit more friendly about it.
Now that I’ve gone over the…people? Who are related to Aion, This sums up the gist of everything I talked about. Now you have a good idea of everyone’s relationship with each other. That’s a pretty complex correlation chart. Humans really are fascinating.
■ Devil Summoner Progression Elements
Now I’d like to discuss how Devil Summoners grow stronger. Humans must continue to grow each and every day.
At the Mansei Realm facility COMP SMITH, acquired materials can be used to modify COMPs. It’s run by the talented Tara (voiced by Yumiri Hanamori), who can apply modifications useful for battle such as increasing attack or decreasing MP costs… or skills like Pick-Me-Up, which increases the chance of obtaining items from defeated enemies, which can grant valuable benefits for exploration.
There are also Commander Skills exclusively available to Ringo’s COMP. Freely customize your COMPs to suit your individual play style.
Accessories can be purchased in Zafiro, which is located in Shinsando. Not only can accessories boost defense, but many of them can modify various stats such as evasion. Try equipping accessories that work well with your play style.
Also located in Shinsando is Bar Heidrun, where Ringo and her allies can spend time together. These interactions where they converse and drink together are called Hangout Events, and completing them boosts your Soul Level with a given ally.
Soul Levels represent the level of mutual understanding between allies. Other than hanging out at the bar, Soul Levels can be increased by progressing the story. They say that increasing Soul Levels can grant some sort of boon.
—Ringo: “We can’t approach this like there’s only one right way to do things.”
Modify COMPs and equip accessories to power up characters. Boost Soul Levels and deepen your relationship with your allies! In order to face powerful enemies, you’ll need to become stronger as a Devil Summoner and as a team.
Well, that’s it for today’s Summoner’s Guide. Keep looking forward to the next one, okay?
Until next time!
