SaGa 3 Ruler of Space-Time: Shadow or Light has a new element called the Times Gear. In addition to activating the scenario synchro system, the Times Gear has various gear drive attacks in battle.
Use a "present" gear drive to activate a Persona style all-out attack. The "past" gear drive has a different trick, it allows players to replay an attack. So, if you time a powerful attack right you can use it twice with the past gear.
Just like Final Fantasy Legends III, the ship can attack too by opening battles with a laser blast.
