Previously, the developer has cascaded out details that paint Edge of Eternity as a genre-defying piece. The project will eliminate grinding, a common pet-peeve for JRPG critics. Instead, the title will substitute grinding for strategic combat. Players consume the power of ancient crystals to power up their abilities, along with customising their party through crafting and weapon modifications.
In terms of narrative, the story looks less experimental. Players will assume the role of Daryon and Selene as they attempt to find a cure for Corrosion, an all-consuming force enveloping Heryon, the overworld.
