The developers behind Operation Babel: New Tokyo Legacy have begun to unveil some of the new systems in the game. They have put up the first part of the two-part feature on their official website and released a press release on it. For part one, players are introduced to the game’s concept, how character strengthening works, and the battle system.
The game’s concept sees you start the story as an everyday student at the Hinowa Academy. That quickly changes when fate upends the table and you find yourself invited to join the Xth Squad, a special forces unit. By now, Tokyo is in pretty rough shape as Rampaging Variants continue to attack innocent people. Someone has to save the day and of course that someone is you! The game includes a “finely-tuned difficulty curve” as well as a new “Cross Blood System”.
As with many games, you will earn EXP in battle. You need EXP in order to level up your Blood Codes, which in turn unlocks new spells and skills. Your foes will also drop various items upon defeat, some of which are junk weapons. These junk weapons are not useless trash, however. Once you identify them, they become Codes, which can be used to create stronger items and weapons. Should things go sour for you during battle, you always have the option to retreat and then use the Medical Lab to heal your team.
The information released today reveals three battle modes you will encounter.
The Rise and Drop System
In Operation Abyss, the more battles you survived, the more dangerous the labyrinth would get. This is also true in Operation Babel: New Tokyo Legacy. The Rise & Drop system also ensures that players know that approaching danger also means possible rewards.
This is a brand new feature added in Operation Babel, further empowering both skills and spells. This is achieved by giving players the ability to equip them with special items. The equipped item can use special abilities granted by these items regardless of the team member’s Blood Code.
These are special skills that can be unleashed by having all team members cooperate. They come in three flavors: ACADEMY, BRAVE, and MAGIC. Timing is important in order to maximize the impact of your attack.

Operation Babel: New Tokyo Legacy
We are happy to announce part one of two of the newest systems update on the Operation Babel: New Tokyo Legacy website! In part one, the site introduces you to the Game Concept, Battle System, and Strengthening.
You begin as a normal student at Hinowa Academy until you were selected to join the special forces unit called the Xth Squad. Tokyo at this point is in shambles and the Rampaging Variants are attacking innocent civilians in the city labyrinth. It’s up to you to stop them!
New additions to Operation Babel include a finely tuned difficulty curve and the new “Cross Blood System.”
Check out the various battle systems you encounter below!
Healing, curing, and leveling up: If your party is in danger, you always have the option to retreat and use the Medical Lab to heal and cure your team. You’ll also earn EXP in battle which you can use to level up your Blood Codes, which will unlock new skills and spells.
Creating stronger items: Among the items that the enemy drops after a fight, you’ll sometimes find junk weapons and materials. Once you identify these items, they’ll become Codes, which you can then use to create stronger weapons or items. With this system you can fully strengthen all of your favorite weapons.
