May 21 Update Steam

The action-adventure battle royale Naraka: Bladepoint has a new hero courtesy of the game’s latest update. Read further to learn more.

New Hero

The “Demon Vessel” Takeda Nobutada is the latest hero introduced in Naraka: Bladepoint. His motto in life is to "live a life free of desire, with no regrets left behind." He possesses a demonic spirit inside him known as Furen.

Takeda only has two skills that players can use at this time. The first is Mythic Grab which puts him on the alert, grabbing his attacker’s weapon the moment they attack with a blue Focus Strike. 

The second skill is called Demonic Aid. When used, Takeda unleashes Furen to attack his enemies. During this time, the Mythic Grab ability turns into Demonic Strike for 20 seconds. Takeda can use Demonic Strike three times before Furen is sealed back inside him again.

Takeda Nobutada’s third skill and ultimate ability will be added in a later update.
