White Sand! Blue Seas! Introducing Okinawa!
Pursuing the the mystery behind the incidents, the Phantom Thieves visit “Kukojima,” a resort a little ways off from mainland Okinawa. With a beautiful sea and beach, it’s a lively island with tourist shops lined up around the harbor.
While pursuing the case, the Phantom Thieves enjoy a brief vacation, but the state of the residents of the island is strange… There seems to be secrets behind this island.
While exploring the island’s secrets, they find themselves lost in the Okinawa Jail, with the form of an abandoned laboratory. The area’s mood is ominous just like a horror movie’s.
It’s a dangerous Jail where shadows lurk in the darkness, attacking one after another. Voice recorders around the area are likely to have left behind clues as to what is happening on this island.
Making full use of the “Phantom Move” mechanic, with which you can freely use various actions with quick and stealthy movement. This Jail has glass that blocks your path, and “Phantom Move” can be used to break through it.
Take advantage of the mechanic in this Jail to gain the upperhand with surprise attacks behind the enemy’s back.
Occasionally in this Jail, you may be unable to proceed through large locked doors. To get through them, a “Hacking Battle” will occur to release the lock with the navigator’s hacking. While hacking, protect the navigator’s back from shadows.
Let’s make good use of “Cooking” and “Requests”!
In this game, you can acquire ingredients to perform “cooking.” Finished dishes can be used as items. Various effects can be expected from them, such as restoring HP and SP, or strengthening allies.
Get “Recipes” from event shops and various locations to increase your cooking repertoire.
As the story moves forward, “Requests” can be made from various people. There are various types of requests from people in need, and also from members of the Phantom Thieves.
Receive valuable rewards by completing these requests, so take them on actively.
