Dragon Quest XI has new images. The images are from both ports PS4 and 3DS showing gameplay as well as showing the zone effect. The interesting thing is that the article compares zone to Final Fantasy IX trance. Take a look.
Zone is a new battle feature that happens when a character’s concentration is at its best, temporarily increasing powers. Zone is characterized by its blue aura and it triggers while taking damage from enemies and such.
The effects of Zone can carry over to the next battle, and having several party members in Zone mode can certainly bring out the damage.
However, you’ll want to be careful, as monsters can also enter Zone status, and they’ll be tougher than ever.
When the protagonist goes Zone mode, he’s able to pair up with a party member or more to perform “Co-op Skills” that brings a variety of powerful mash-up abilities to the table. These vary according to what spells, abilities, and the number of Zone-active party members you have.
This one shows Sylvia using his fire breath to power up the protagonist’s sword.
The protagonist and Camus about the bust out “Shadow Attack.”
Monsters can go Zone, so that means they’re also able to pull off their own “Co-op Skills.” It looks like we’re going to have to be careful with these ones.
Let’s take a look at some more Co-op Skills:
The protagonist and Camus’ Co-op Skill “Falcon Dance.”
Sylvia, the protagonist, and Rou’s Co-op Skill “Rose Hurricane.”
The full-party Co-op Skill “Giga Burst.”
Martina and Rou’s Co-op Skill “Matou Enbu” or “Magic Fists Display.”
