New Feature 1 – 3D Battle System

Switching the battle system is easy as it can be!

There are no complicated settings at all.


Point 1

Original 3D maps that were made in the editor can be the background of the battle scenes.

Particle effects, such as rain, snow, fires, and other event graphics will be also effective,

so your battle fields will be more unique and special!

Moreover, there are 23 different types of default maps for you to use.

The “3D” battle style can display both 2D graphics and 3D graphics

at the same time for both the enemy side and the ally side.

Furthermore, you can use mixed graphics in one battle scene.

New Feature 2 – The Start-Up Icon Setting

Your special game can be made even more special with this!

This function lets you change the default start-up icon

for your publish games to the original icon.

When you execute “Create Public Game File”, just select the data which you’ve created;

it automatically makes four different sizes.


New Feature 3 – VR Mode (Beta)

We’ve implemented the same VR Mode which received

very high acclaim at the “Digital Games Expo 2016” in Akihabara, Japan.

It is now in the production release version

You can “dive” into your one and only your world of Smile Game Builder.
