A Look At Final Fantasy Type-0’s Battles And World Map In Video Form

0

Final Fantasy Type-0 may have been delayed to fall, but it looks like Square Enix have updates planned to make up for the delay. Today, they updated the game’s website with a whole bunch of short videos.

 

Battles – Basic Knowledge

 

During battle, you control a party of three. You can switch between the character you control on the fly, and each one has their own weapon and abilities, which adds a tactical element to battles.

 

Kill Sight and Break Sight

 

Kill Sights are used to kill enemies in one fell swoop. When the lock-on cursor glows red, you can perform a Kill Sight. Break Sights are used to inflict a large amount of damage on enemies. During these, the lock-on cursor glows yellow.

 

Special Order

 

Special orders are specific objectives issued within missions. These orders can vary in their nature, and you have to carry them out within the provided time limit. Depending on the number of orders you successfully carry out, you’re rewarded with items and the like upon clearing missions.

 

Active Field Map

 

Finally, this video shows the world map, littered with tows and dungeons. You can traverse it on foot, Chocobo, or by air ship. You can also run into monster and enemy battles on the map.

 

Square Enix plan to hold a demo event for Final Fantasy Type-0 in Japan sometime soon, where attendees will get to try the game out for 15 minutes each. Along with the news, they provided a brief list of controls for the game.
