■ New Systems

Interacting with Characters

“Brain Messages,” which are sent and received by brain like e-mail, and conversations at the hideout will trigger character episodes. Complete these episodes to form a bond with that character.

—By interacting with specific characters, your bonds will develop. When your bond with a character reaches a certain degree, your bond level and SAS connection ability will increase, allowing that character to support the player in battle in various ways.

You can develop bonds with characters by giving them gift items obtained during the game. Gift them items that match their preferences. The gifts you give them will decorate their personal space, which will make the hideout gradually more wonderful.
