The Filth is evolving and mutating as the creatures of darkness meet resistance. The all new AEGIS system will let you overcome these dangerous new defenses that the monsters of Tokyo have acquired.
You can equip three different controllers on each of your weapons, to deal with different types of shields. In addition you can equip AEGIS enhancers which fit with your chosen builds.
