In this world, individuals known as Drivers can team up with artificial lifeforms called Blades to borrow their weapons and powers in battle. A Driver can take up to three Blades with them into combat, and switch between them mid-battle. Each Blade has its own elemental powers, special moves and weapons, and they let their Driver trigger different Driver Arts too. Switch between Blades to gain the advantage, build combos and devastate enemies!
