A no-nonsense witch who has a ditzy side.

It’s often difficult to tell if she’s acting out of logic or haste.

She is afraid death is quickly approaching due to her passing the average age of the elder witches.

She loves to cook, but her unique cooking style can produce… interesting results.

Character Design:
Kei Nanameda
(Death end re;Quest™ and Mary Skelter™)


She’s graceful but always looks melancholic.

She holds the magical power of clairvoyance and can see the sad future of those she touches so she hates her power.

She does not want to be involved with people that she does not trust.

She is especially intimidated by men.

Character Design:
Katsuyuki Hirano
(Moero Chronicle and Agarestseries)


A mysterious witch who claims to be a terrible witch of legend.

According to her, she is the one behind the massacre known as the Carnival of Death in which she took the lives of 100 witches a decade ago.

Character Design: 
(Neptunia™ series)

Dragon Core – During battle, players can eat a dragon using the Devour Skill. Once the dragon is eaten, you obtain its Dragon Core – a skill tree that grants characters new skills and bonuses. The Dragon Core is a unique system that allows players to explore 126 possible Dragon Core combinations! Whenever you select the dragon to devour, there is a success rate percentage of devouring. Weaken the enemy to increase your chances! Be sure to use different party members, because each Dragon Core devoured will only be available to the party member who successfully devoured the enemy.

Giant Boss Battle – Prepare yourself against a giant dragon battle where dragons take up all three tiers! Focus attacks on specific body parts to disable the body part’s attacks and even temporarily knock out bosses to change the tide of battle!


The Iffy Marketing Team will also be streaming Dragon Star Varnir today
@ 5:00pm PT on our TwitchYouTube, and Facebook channels! Here, the team will dive deep into the world of Varneria and explore the different battle mechanics within the game!

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.
