Using a turn-based battle system, fans can now control up to 5 Blood Maidens in battle! Attacking an enemy's weak point will result in Overkills which splatter the enemy's pink blood. The more blood that splatters, the stronger the Blood Maidens become. When a Blood Maiden's blood meter gauge fills, it can unlock their Massacre Mode or Blood Skelter Mode in battle! Use Blood Skelter Mode at your own risk, for with strength comes repercussions.
When enemies splatter enough blood, they will spin around and face the other direction, activating Kagome-Kagome! The enemies are defenseless when turned around, meaning players can deal massive damage with their party and increase the amount of blood splattered by foes.
When a character cuts in at the start of your turn, that means there's a chance for a critical attack! Critical Notice attacks comes in tiers. The higher the level, the more your attacks and effects compound. Critical will only apply to "Attack" options, meaning fans will have to decide between "Attack" or "Recovery" when the time calls for it.
