In this week’s issue of Famitsu, details have come forth regarding the Soma Build system for Tales of Hearts R. As you level your party, you will earn Soma Build Points (also known as SBP) and these points can be distributed to the Spir Parameters which will allow you to increase their stats. All of this is tied to something known as Soma Evolve. Once your Soma evolves, you will unlock new skills.
The protagonist, Shing‘s, Spir Parameters include:
– Fighting Spirit
– Will Power
The Soma can also be modified into something else though if you don’t like the default choice. Shing‘s standard Soma is set to Asteria, but it can be changed to the following:
It was also announced that Kohaku and Shing‘s dual arte will be detailed in next week’s issue and that Kohaku and Hisui‘s will remain the same from the original DS version. Last, but not least, it was mentioned that Production I.G. will be handling the animation for the ten cutscenes featured in the game. You can view screenshots of those as well as two new in-game screenshots, and the two Famitsu scans for this week in the gallery below.
