Unicorn Overlord Details Social Activities, Rapport & Rite of the Covenant

Atlus and Vanillaware have released new gameplay and character details for their upcoming tactical JRPG Unicorn Overlord.

Firstly, social activities have been introduced, letting players deepen their bonds with other members of the army through meals, battles, and more. Getting to know other characters better will unlock special conversations and increased stats when teamed up in the same unit.

Character affinity is displayed via the Rapport stat, with particular character pairings triggering special Rapport conversations. This stat will rise as characters spend more time together.

However, Rapport is mainly increased by characters fighting within the same unit, with high mutual levels of the stat giving Rapport bonuses. As for meals, Rapport will increase depending on the number of participants invited and the food chosen. Gifts work as one would expect, with Alain’s Rapport with his allies altering favorably if the other party appreciates the gesture and received item.

Lastly, Alain’s Ring of the Unicorn has a counterpart called the Ring of the Maiden, where if Alain’s Rapport level is maxed out with a character, you can give them the ring and perform the Rite of the Covenant. Both parties will pledge fealty to each other forever, and only one can be chosen.
