To ensure that it would be acknowledged as a next-generation mobile game, the company says that it has worked hard to achieve the most realistic graphics possible on this platform. Using the Unreal Engine, it  actively utilized graphics rendering technology exclusive to PC games, including global illumination, auto-instantiation, and auto-exposure functions, to push the limits of mobile gaming graphics.

It has also worked on mobile CPU and GPU optimization and made efforts to improve optimization in other areas, such as character multi-parts mesh, run-time merging, movement logic parallel processing, physics engine optimization, control-feel optimization, and mobile-overheating optimization, and more.
