Home is where the Heart is
Shikihime Zoushi takes you away to an ancient Japan and your goal is to become the most powerful Onmyoji the world has ever seen. It’s up to you to decide how you go about this and this starts by choosing where your capital city should be. There are a total of 9 areas to choose from. If you’re in the mood for intense confrontations with other players, then you should go for an area with a dense population, while others are more peaceful and are suitable for calmer players, so choose wisely. After you have completed the rather extensive tutorial, you’ll then need to decide which faction you’ll eventually belong to. This choice decides the appearance of your avatar, as well as future quests available to you. At this point, you’re ready to get started! Your first task on your way to rescue the world from evil forces, you’ll need to rid the area around your capital city of monsters and claim it as your own. In total, there are 6 different terrains all producing different resources. These include grassy and hilly areas, as well as rivers, flatland, mines and forests.
Princesses – but all Japanese!
The most important component of the game is of course, the small fairy princesses called Shikihime. There are 90 different types to collect in your Book of the Five Elements. You can summon them to you by using soul crystals together with three different spirit stones (Earth, Fire and Water), which you can then earn by completing quests, winning fights and finding resources. You even have the option of summoning special types through fusion. Each fairy gains experience points by training or fighting, which are then used to level up. Your fairies aren’t able to overtake your own level, however, so you’ll have to progress together. Each level also unlocks additional special points, which can be used to learn new skills and abilities. In addition, you’ll be able to mine minerals faster and for longer. In battle you can summon up to 5 Shikihime at any one time.
Away to Battle!
The battle system in Sihikihime Zoushie is turn based and takes place on an eight-sided map. Just like chess, each player begins with their troops on opposing sides and need to move them to the right position using skill and tactical thinking. Movement is done with a click of a mouse. In addition, there’s also the option to fight, use items or skip rounds completely. Depending on the map, you might have to deal with additional obstacles which can limit your Shikihime’s movement and have the ability to turn the battle in your typical cat and mouse chase. If you have a talent for strategy, then you’ll definitely be at an advantage here.
Many More Features
If that doesn’t sound like enough action for you, then don’t panic! There are a lot more features within the game to help you pass the time. On the training field, you’ll have access to countless quests separated into 3 categories: Level Up, Conquer and Manoeuvres. The individual missions can only be done in succession and increase in difficulty. In conquest mode, you have the chance to complete 6 different dungeons crawling with powerful monsters with you chance to earn special material. You can trade rare items using the marketplace or craft over 200 different weapons, armour and potions yourself. This requires 5 different skills, which can be learnt through research. And because playing alone can be boring, you’ll also have the option to start or join an alliance. Last but not least, Shikihime Soushi plays out in seasons. After roughly 30 days, the game starts anew. You’ll still keep hold of your achievements and Shikihime but your capital city and territories are removed from the map.
