Estpolis: The Lands Cursed by the Gods is based on Lufia II, a console RPG with a party of characters to control in turn based battles. Estpolis is in real time, but still lets players switch between Maxim and Tia.

 

By touching character portraits on the bottom screen players can change characters instantly, even in the middle of a combo. See the pictures above? Those are stills from an impressively smooth mid-combo Maxim to Sophie switch. Each character has a different attack set and a unique wave art. Let’s take a look at them.

Maxim: Cross Dash

Sophia: Icicle Blade

Tia: Hook Shot

 

Wave arts aren’t only used to set skeletons ablaze, you need them to beat dungeons too. Tia’s hook shot, for example, allows the party to clear gaps. Estpolis also has awesome looking dual screen boss battles.

 

All of these changes make Estpolis appear grander in scale than the average remake. Square Enix isn’t just giving Lufia II a facelift, the gameplay is getting a complete makeover.
