Studio Wildrose has shared new updates on Penny Blood regarding characters and PS (Sanity Points) systems. Players familiar with the Shadow Hearts series will recognize PSs, but how they work has been changed in this game. You’ll still be able to control your character, with its pros and cons.
When you lose all your HP, your character enters mode berserk. Again, you will still be able to give orders, but the Psycho Sigil will go faster with hitboxes smaller. Whereas the ATK of your character will increase, its DEF will diminish and he will not be able to defend himself or escape. However, when the character is in a trance, he can use hidden abilities.
Penny Blood’s New Characters

Goliath is a homunculus created by Doctor Frankenstein over a hundred years ago. An explorer found it in the Arctic, then it was sold to slavers. He has worked loyally for his various owners, but time has taken its toll on his body and he has lost more than half of his original strength. Goliath is afraid of others because of misunderstandings about his appearance, but he is very nice deep down. He tries to help Candy after she saves him, but she often ends up scolding him.
There are also characters that do not appear as party members in Penny Blood. However, they play a part in the main plot, as well as their own sub-stories (in Japanese only). Roxane Archambeau is a dhampyr jazz singer who works as a vigilante at night. She is also one of the survivors of the Titanic disaster.
The hellhunders are also a group that plays an important role in the side stories. It is about a group of assassins who killed politicians and millionaires after the end of the First World War.
Kuro : “Personally, I find the artistic direction of the characters incredible, and you?”
