The upcoming Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will have a revamped combat system.
The newest issue of Famitsu, via Game Nyarth, gives new information about the system, called “Amazing ATB” currently.
Commands will be mapped on the face buttons, with Lightning being able to be moved directly. Her Styles, consisting of equipment, accessories and abilities, can be switched during battle.
In addition, battles will give points that increase available world time and help upgrade equipment. As far as her costume goes, it can be changed throughout the game so that it’s not the standard pink and purple.
