Atlus has released a new trailer for The Alliance Alive introducing the game’s combat system.
Here is an overview of the trailer, via Atlus:
Each character has a collection of “Battle Arts” that’ll unleash a fury of attacks on opponents. In the middle of battle, spark an “Awakening,” a mechanic that can randomly trigger when using Battle Arts. These “Awakenings” can either level up the art being used or unlock a new, related art. Keep using your Battle Arts and the “Ignition” gauge will build up. Once full, unleash an ultimate attack called a “Final Strike” to deal some major damage against enemies.
Attacking enemies, taking damage and having a party member get KO’d all also build up the gauge, so think strategically about how to approach a fight.
The Alliance Alive is available now for 3DS in Japan, and will launch in the Americas and Europe on March 27.
