Publised by BeXide, Yohane the Parhelion -NUMAZU in the MIRAGE- is a visual novel mixed with card-game based RPG Mechanics whereby Yohane battles through the mirror world in order to return home. Instead of last years YOHANE THE PARHELION -BLAZE in the DEEPBLUE-, which was developed by Inti Creates as a metroidvania styled action platformer, this particular title blends 3D visual novel sequences with card battling mechanics to deliver its story. In this case, instead of fighting with swords and magic, players will use trading cards to deliver attacks and defend from monsters with new cards being earned as your progress.
