Square Enix finally revealed details about Final Fantasy Gaiden: The Four Light Warriors’ battle system, which gets rid of a RPG tradition. Players don’t have to worry about magic points or carrying ethers in this game.
Before casting Fira, players need to store ability points by selecting the stock command. AP can be used to cast spells like Dark (as seen in the screenshot) and activate commands like Darkness. Spells appear to be tiered with Dark casting 1 AP, Darkra consuming 2 AP, and Darkga sapping 3 AP.
AP carries over after battles end so you can amass points before facing a boss. In fact, Impress Watch recommends players do just that.
Up to six commands can be assigned on a touch screen menu, not including staple commands like fight, store, and item.
Final Fantasy Gaiden: The Four Light Warriors comes out in Japan on October 29.
