New Details About Final Fantasy XIII's ATB System Surface

Written by Darryl — 19 Mar 2009

A new scan has surfaced from Japan which features information about Final Fantasy XIII's Active Time Battle (ATB) system. It was previously disclosed that this system would feature in the game, but no concrete details were ever announced prior to now.

It appears as though the player will be able to put together a large amount of moves. These can be chained together and assuming they tie together and this will result in an attack bonus. However, the moves can also be broken with the help of a 'pre-separator'. This can be useful to help and improve a chain of commands.

Hopefully more concrete information will be announced soon.
