The entire party can be manipulated on the grid as well, configured by various abilities, gear, etc., to toy with the enemies on the field. Aside from these battles, players have an entire world to explore, filled with rich lore and despite the pollution, lush beauty. With each battle, experience is gained and the characters improve their abilities. Following a skill tree system, players can customize the entire party's skill stats and make them a party to dream of."
