It is time for a dragon-sized update for Dragon Star Varnir! Idea Factory has updated the game's official website with tons of new details.

First of all, let's meet three new characters: Durandol, Jaiga, and Darne.

Dragon Star Varnir | Durandol

A hero who has defeated over 10,000 dragons, Durandol is a hot-blooded dragon warrior who loves to fight, whether friend or foe.

Dragon Star Varnir | Jaiga

Jaiga is a dragon warrior with only his own interests in mind. He's a real brown noser to Durandol and Ruby Eye, but he would sell them out the sooner a better opportunity arrives.

Dragon Star Varnir | Darne

Darne will be a good source of items and information throughout the game. Selling dragon claws and fangs one minute and black market items the next, he does not judge his clientele.

Now for some gameplay details! A big part of upgrading your characters is by summoning dragons. You mostly do this by throwing dragon parts, such as claws, fangs, eyes, livers, and bones into an elixir in the Witches' Workshop. Once you defeat the summoned dragon, you receive rare equipment that can't be found anywhere else in the game!

Dragon Star Varnir

Your witch party members are a huge focus of the game, so you want to make sure they are happy. Giving witches gifts, especially ones that appeal just to them, helps build their affinity with you and triggers special events.

On the flipside, your decisions throughout the game also impacts the insanity of the witches. Their level of insanity will impact which ending you receive.

You can check out new screenshots for all of these new details in our updated gallery!

Idea Factory describes Dragon Star Varnir:

In a world where the bones of an ancient beast tower over the land...
The Knight Zephy is part of an order whose role is to hunt down witches people seen as cursed beings for giving birth to dragons.
When he is almost killed on one of these missions, two mysterious witches save him from the brink of death by feeding him dragon blood.
Granted new magic abilities by their efforts, he soon finds his fate intertwined with the witches and reluctantly joins them to fight against an Empire out to destroy his kind, ruthless dragon hunters, and a witch more powerful than any in existence.
Can they fight all this and save themselves, or will his new allies succumb to the dragon's curse...?

Key Features
3 Tiers to Fear In this unique take on the classic turn-based battle system, players take flight and charge at dragons in three vertically-oriented tiers. Strategize how you position your party members as certain dragons have strengths and weaknesses depending on what tier you attack from. Some giant dragons can also swipe through all three tiers, so tread carefully!
Awaken Your Inner Dragon When attacking an enemy during battle, players fill up their Dragon Gauge. Once maxed, they can transform and harness the power of dragons, drastically increasing their armor and unlocking abilities!
Welcome to Devour Hour Once an enemy dragon is weakened, players can utilize the Devour skill to obtain a skill tree unique to that dragon. With multiple dragons roaming the land, players can explore different dragon skill trees and combinations that can lead you to victory! ​​
Madness or Riches? Three witches depend on you to bring them dragon's blood as food. Starve them, and they go mad. Overfeed them, and they become a dragon! Will you keep them alive or sacrifice them to obtain rare items? The choice is ultimately yours, but each decision you make can change your ending.
