In Spectrobes: Beyond the Portals, Jpiter is giving players complete control by creating two separate battle systems. You'll now control Rallen in field battles, and directly control two Spectrobes in encounter battles.
On the field, there are large vortexes that spawn smaller Krawl. Controlling Rallen, you can battle these smaller Krawl using his sword, blaster, and gloves. Once you touch a vortex, you are taken to an encounter battle where you control the Spectrobes and fight the powerful Krawl inside the vortex.
