During the single player gameplay, players take control of Pit who has to protect the land from the evil Medusa. Pit has the ability to shoot enemies from a distance, attack them in close combat with melee attacks, and dodge enemy attacks. As the player goes deeper into the game, Pit will earn additional weaponry to take advantage of.

These weapon types are :

  • Arms – fits around Pit’s wrist.
  • Blades – balanced weaponry that are good for both ranged and melee attacks.
  • Bows – weapons that shoot arrows.
  • Cannons – large cannons that Pit wears on his arm.
  • Claws – fearsome claws that are worn on both hands.
  • Clubs – massive and powerful melee weapons.
  • Orbitars – two hovering objects over Pit’s shoulders.
  • Palms – magical glowing tattoos that cover Pit’s arm.
  • Staffs – sort of like a spear with a sniper riffle’s range that gains power over distance.

Note : each in-game weapon has its own advantages and disadvantages.

Players can battle online over Wi-Fi or locally in the multi-player gameplay. Up to six players can play the game together. The multi-player portion of the game features two game modes – ‘Team Deathmatch’ and ‘Free for All’. In the Team Deathmatch game mode, the game ends when the enemy’s angel is defeated.
