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”.


Character Progression

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.


Battle System

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.

XTND Spells/Skills

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.

Unity Skills

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.

XTND Skills/Spells
A brand-new feature added on Operation Babel, which further empowers skills and spells by allowing players to equip them with special items. Regardless of a team member’s Blood Code, the equipped item can use these abilities given by these special items.
Operation Babel: New Tokyo Legacy The Rise & Drop System
Just like in Operation Abyss, the more battles you survive, the more dangerous the labyrinth becomes. With the Rise & Drop system, players have a good understanding that incoming danger also means potential rewards.



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.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
