Despite her delicate appearance, she is extremely smart and manages to manipulate people to act for her, while feeling a strong sense of loyalty towards her friends.
He was with Neku and Beat during a certain incident that happened three years ago. Coco has reinvented herself after the last game, at least in appearance …
Influencer whose popularity exploded a few years ago thanks to his charm and his almost cruel attitudes. He has recently made a comeback thanks to his calm and lazy demeanor.
Very popular streamer that manages to hold the attention of its viewers thanks to its truly unique voice. He was able to appreciate his voice only thanks to Eiji Oji, and for this he hopes to be able to collaborate with him in the future.

Handyman from Shibuya who accepts any type of work, from the simplest to those really impossible to complete. He was born with a strong “sixth Sense”, And this has created a connection between him and the UG.
Game system: Imprinting
Despite Rindo and others cannot interact directly with the citizens of Shibuya, they can use the power of Imprinting to change their thoughts and actions. If you can’t find a path to continue, try having someone else create it!
Game system: Side missions
In Shibuya we will be able to meet people who are facing their own personal problems that we can help. Despite the secondary missions they will not be linked to the Game of Demons, these will allow us to obtain different benefits based on the people we will help.
Combat system: Party
Up to six characters can be present in battle at the same time! Even by pressing buttons randomly we will be able to give life to frantic and action-packed fights. Obviously, however, this is not the only way to face the battles: using a certain power at the right time will allow us to chain more powerful combos and easily annihilate your opponents.
Combat system: Chain Battle
The fights will automatically start a few seconds after touching a Noise, but we can create a chain of battles tapping more Noises before starting a fight. The higher the number in the chain, the greater the rewards obtained. But be careful, the strength of the opponents will become progressively higher based on how long the chain will be.
Combat system: Pig Noise
There are different types of this particular Noise, and each will be addressed in a unique way. Despite the difficulty, defeating them will guarantee us some truly amazing rewards!
Combat System: Brooches
Among the pins that we will be able to obtain during the game, there are some of the “Uber”Which contain within them truly unique powers. Also by activating a set of pins between the different characters of our party we will be able to obtain special abilities capable of giving us an advantage in battle.
At the end of each fight Brooches will gain experience, and some will even be able to evolve into new Badges once max level is reached. After the evolution, the base stats will be better but the level will be reset. Among the pins in the game we find:
- In The Snipeline: Homing Rockets – launches a series of missiles that automatically aim at the opponents.
- Heartful Hot Dog: Protective Field – a barrier that temporarily nullifies the damage received and at the same time damages enemies with which it comes in contact.
- Raven: Patrol Rounds – a flock of birds that attack opponents and then return to you.
