▍New Systems – Monster Bells & Dimension Bringer
■ Monster Bells
The Monster Bell is an item that can be used during battle to instantly summon demons to assist you.
In order to receive assistance from demons, you need to find the summoning stone and complete special events first. The intimacy level is increased by talking with the demons and giving them food, items, etc.
■ Dimension Bringer
When activated, it slows the movement of surrounding enemies and increases the damage dealt to the player with each action ability released. During the effect time, special attacks are possible instead of a soul shield. The player can unleash special attacks and finish off enemies in one fell swoop with combos.
