YUKI wins Endless Mode. Discover what's new
Unlike the traditional Patrol Mode, in which players face 6 episodes earning Bladewings and power-ups along the way, Endless Mode goes on without end with a challenge that gets more and more intense. With no episodes or bosses, the goal is to reach the highest score facing hordes of enemies and endless obstacles. The new leaderboards will allow you to compare this score with your friends and other YUKI players, with separate leaderboards for different Bladewings and intensity levels.
This mode takes place in a different setting than the Patrol Mode levels, a challenging virtual environment created by Yuki's sidekick POD. If you've already won the game or don't even have time to try a full round of Patrol Mode, Endless Mode is a great option to have fun trying to get better while beating your friends in a short, yet straightforward, even more challenging experience. .
