In order to improve the gaming experience to a more dynamic way, we have added and adjusted more than 200 items by tweaking the game down to its very roots.

Buster is more comfortable to operate!
Improved weapon handling and block trapping, etc., greatly reducing the frustrations during character operation! While retaining the traditional gameplay in which coordination between busters is the key, players can now move around more freely and independently.
The addition of Aim Assist makes it easier to defeat the undead! More of the same weapon types now have a completely different feel.
The gaps of one square, which were difficult to move through, and the physical behavior-specific traps that were in the way of jumping have been reduced, allowing the smoother movement!
In addition to the automatic resurrection on countdown, which happens faster if toched by a fellow player, homing kicks and ghost attacks have also been added! It is now easier to move while still retaining the importance of coordination.
Alerts are now displayed to warn of approaching monsters! Moreover, icons have been added to keep track of the location of undead and soul pods.
Monsters became more dynamic!
The fun of rampaging has been doubled, with the addition of actions such as predation to make them huge or blow away busters! The changes are now visually more obvious, making them easier to handle even for beginners.
The more it preys, the bigger it gets and the more powerful it becomes! At maximum size, the player can destroy blocks just by bumping into them, and the time it takes to prey on them is also shortened!
Punch and prey on the buster to blow it away! Blowing up busters destroys blocks and sends them flying off-stage… The exhilaration of a huge rampage has been greatly increased.
Monsters are now designed not to kick! Now you can chase the buster anywhere without being blocked by obstacles.
You can jump higher now! Use your quick mobility to chase down busters!
There are many effects to make the most of the charm of the characters!
In addition, we have added many new effects to fully enjoy the “characters” that are one of the charms of this title. We have also implemented stamps, login bonuses, and other elements that make daily gaming more fun.
You can now see everyone’s customizations at the start of battles! We have enhanced the fun of acquiring skins by increasing the opportunities to show off your customizations.
The new “praise” feature has been added to praise players who have performed well! This will increase the feeling of victory and motivate players to play.
More than 30 types of rewards have been added to reward gameplay! Every move you make in the game will now be recognized.
Rewards are also connected to results. Gems, which were previously difficult to obtain, are now available the more you play, and we have made improvements to reduce gear disparities.
The story will be unlocked by collecting stamps! You can also get coins and gems.
Added a login bonus that allows you to play the gacha once a day! You can expand your customization by continuing to do so every day.
