A new report from Famitsu provides concrete details about the combat system in The Legend of Legacy. We’ve rounded up some details from Gematsu’s translation below.

– Enemies appear on dungeon maps
– Roam them and bumping into them triggers turn-based combat encounters
– The game uses spirits and magic to set itself apart from other RPGs
– Form contracts with spirits during battle to use elemental techniques known as “Spirit Arts”
– With their continued usage, strengthens spirits of the same element, as well as the corresponding Spirit Arts
– 4 element types: water (blue), wind (green), fire (red), and dark (purple)
– The balance of power between these four elements, which is displayed on the lower screen, changes over the course of battle as Spirit Arts are used
– Enemies can use Spirit Arts as well
– Therefore careful consideration of what elements are in play must be made in order to remain on top
– Good manipulation of the system is said to also make it possible for players to take out enemies that would otherwise be way out of their league, making elemental manipulation a major priority during fights
– “Implore”: form a contract with a water spirit
– After a special cutscene plays, water element Spirit Arts are unlocked for use in the fight
– The Spirit Arts that are unlocked through this process depend on the type of Spirit Vessel currently equipped
– Ex: the contract allows the water element Spirit Art “Splash Wall” to be used, which, in accordance with the name, erects a wall of water in front of the party, automatically protecting the party from enemy attacks, enabling everyone to focus purely on offense for the duration of it
