In this game, the battles are just as important as the narrative sequences where you'll discover more about the game's story and its characters. In these visual novel-type scenes, all you have to do is read the different dialogues, appreciate the game's artwork and choose one of the possible answers when you have the opportunity. Not only will you advance in the story this way, but you'll also be able to go on dates with the characters you unlock to learn more about them and increase their powers.
The battles in Date A Live: Spirit Pledge are similar to other Action RPGs like Hitman Reborn or The God of Highschool. You'll move around using the virtual joystick on the left and attack using the different buttons on the right. Once you've completed several attack combinations, you'll be able to deliver a special attack. Plus, you'll control up to three different characters that you'll be able to switch between whenever you want.
Date A Live: Spirit Pledge is a fantastic RPG that stands out for its variety of game modes, powerful narrative and its anime aesthetics. It's a title that's full of surprises and in which you'll meet all kinds of waifus through its gacha recruitment system. In addition, it has very high production values thanks to its perfect Japanese dubbing that will help you feel fully immersed in the story.
