Since Samtendo09 didn't created any of the characters who are in the game except most of the Overlight Bracelets, he prefer to recycle the appearances from The Cursed Death and New Generation.
The Prima Version is released several weeks later after the game's release (which this version called The Forbidden Light Prima). It has many differences:
- It have the same gameplay as previous games (RPG elements).
- Much more characters is playable in Story Mode.
- The Story Mode is longer, because of more boss battles.
- The Death Bracelets side are added, vastly different of the Golden and Dark side.
- Sundium is now playable. His weapon is the Sun Sword and his main abilities are Darkness Destroyer (Double damage on enemies with Shadow element) and Overlight Field (Double the Overlight Bracelets' and his speed, energy and endurance).
- A new Item, Revival Shard, will revive a dead/knocked out knocked out ally. A better but rarer counterpart, Immortals' Shard, will revive all dead allies but not allowed in Battle Mode.
- Despite having different gameplay, it is considered canon of the Battle of Bracelets series and is even the main game after fans' outrageous approval.
- This is the only main game of the series to have different gameplay.
- However, it does have the RPG Mode.
- This game's events happened after the Cursed Death. It is originally to be between Dark Shadows and Cursed Death but the two latter are chained.
