Magical Battle Arena DX is a third-person shooter video game for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. This game is its sequel to Magical Battle Arena NEXT.


Magical Battle Arena DX is primarily an arena third-person shooter where the players choose a character and try and defeat everyone else. The game offers the Story, VS, and Survival modes, the Network Play up to four players, Mission Mode, where specific requirements are needed in order to succeed in the mission, given the grade of how well one did and the new Arcade Mode where the player blasts through all nine stages and must confront Mistress 9 who has possessed Hotaru at the tenth and final stage.

Each character has basic attacks (both ranged and melee), a defense power, and a sprint. In addition to each of these basic skills each character has their own special attacks, the effects of which differ greatly between characters. The battlefield where this takes place is in the airspace above a given map. Some places are naught but open area, whereas others may provide cover and obstructions, usually in the form of tall buildings or geological formations. The characters all share a common control scheme, including frequent use of 'charging' attacks.
