New Alundra 2 Gameplay Details
Alundra 2 will feature a new "pocket" system. The character's pocket can have up to three items placed into it. During battle any of these three items can quickly be selected by pressing R2, rather than having to go into a separate inventory screen.
There will also be several mini games. Similarly to other rpgs that have mini games, characters will be able to earn items by winning. Many rare items can also be earned by fighting monsters. Some of these items are fragments of a large puzzle within the game. Collecting and returning these various fragments to the Puzzle Mania's House will earn your character new attacks for use in battle.
Alundra 2's magic system revolves around four elemental spirits, Wind Pixie, Fire Salamander, Soil Doriahd, and Water Seilane. Acquiring each individual element will give the character spells of that type. The elementals also enhance a character with new abilities such as diving under water, or walking on lava. For these to take effect they have to be placed in the pocket. This will limit a player to having to choose what they need carefully to tackle a specific area.
Alundra 2 should be out by November 18 in Japan.
