The three characters showcased are: Phoebos, "The Wonder Child” wielding dual swords and unleashing area damage. O’ren, "The Deadly Sniper" skillfully targeting single or multiple aligned enemies. Finally, Diamante "The Elemental Mage", is a formidable sorceress harnessing ice to either injure or immobilize her enemies with chilling precision.

Blade Prince Academy features a mix of real-time with pause strategy and action combat and is set in a fictional anime-inspired universe. Players lead a group of Blade Princes from the Academy through the treacherous city of Abjectalia, which the students have to defend from perils.

In combat, players unleash powerful combos combining attacks and abilities, with each character in the squad being unique in their strengths and weaknesses. Building relationships between the characters is important for the mission's success and the game features pacts and talent trees for skill and ability enhancement. Players will face challenging bosses, requiring complete mastery of the combat system to prevail.

Players can follow the latest information about Blade Prince Academy on the Twitter/X account or by subscribing to the newsletter and add the game to their wishlist on Steam.
