While still eschewing any sense of realism with absurd martial arts moves and light-bending attacks seen in previous games, this new system pays loving tribute to classic JRPGs of the past.
While new protagonist Ichiban Kasuga leads the battles, he is joined by several party members, each with their own special attacks and abilities. The trailer also confirms that the game will feature the signature minigames that previous entries have used, such as playing darts, blackjack and even new vocational aptitude tests!
