Illusion Connect, from publisher Super Prism Games, has been making a splash in its native China since it launched earlier this year.
The good news is that we’ll soon be able to sample its joys, with a global launch on the horizon. The even better news is that there’s a bunch of pre-registration awards on offer in the meantime.
In case you haven’t heard of it, Illusion Connect is a strategy RPG with gacha elements. It’s got Bishoujo heroes, too, and the graphics are super adorable.
The gameplay sees you battling with teams of enemies in turn-based rounds, with different unit types performing different roles on the battlefield. While you’re not fighting you’ll be summoning new Bishoujo heroes to add to your army.
Storywise, the action takes place in a dark parallel universe called the Dream World. This gloomy realm is haunted by shadowy creatures called Nightmares, who skulk in the shadows waiting to pounce.
Using the power of Lenses and your squad of Radiants you need to defeat the Nightmares and uncover the game’s dark secret.
Check out the trailer below to see it in action.
Naturally, Super Prism Games wants as many people to pre-register as possible, and so it’s giving away a host of rewards.
To claim ten Nightmare Bottle M and 20,000 Gold, all you need to do is sign up. If 100,000 players all do the same, they’ll each get 10,000 Crystals and 50 Diamonds, while a total of 200,000 would mean ten Summoning Certificates, five Large Purple Gift Boxes, and 30,000 Gold.
300,000 is the highest tier. At that level, every player will get a Mikuki Skin, 250 Diamonds, and 50,000 Gold, while SSR characters will be given away as rewards for sending out friend invites.
Illusion Connect looks like one of the most promising gacha RPG games of the year. If you want to hit the ground running when it finally launches, you’d better pre-register here. The game also has dedicated accounts on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, and Discord.
