Items are an integral part of game-play. They modify the player's attributes, grant or modify tear effects, and more. Items are classified into several distinct types and groups. Some items are passive, which add an effect permanently to the player, while others only activate when used. As of Chapter 1, Revelations adds 21 new items to the base game, and in Chapter 2, adds 28.
