  • Synthesis
  • The base system where the materials’ characteristics carry over to the resulting item remains in place, while new alchemical element and boost items elements have been added.
    • Alchemical Elements: There are different alchemical elements such as ice and earth, and if the value of a certain element surpasses a certain amount, the resulting item’s effect will change.
    • Boost Items: A boost item can only be thrown in once during a synthesis. It grants effects to the alchemy ingredients and materials.
  • Battle
  • Up to five party members can participate in battle
  • There is also a mysterious item icon on the face icons of character in battle. Though not confirmed, this may be to use an item even when it is not that character’s turn.
