OUTSIDE OF BATTLE
The game is divided into chapters, and each chapter has missions to complete. Missions send you to a level with an objective to complete.
In a mission, you take control of the current leader and will be exploring the level which house various obstacles, while being able to switch leaders on the fly to use their different abilities. And throughout the level, you will find treasure chests containing various kinds of items, and small collectibles used for extra 1UPs available during battle.
Enemy encounters are represented on the field. And if you enter their field of vision, they will chase you until you run far enough, or enter battle with them. When in contact with the enemy, you will be sent into battle, but you can get a “first strike” if you hit the enemy with your weapon on the field.
In between missions, you will go to the Intermission.
In the Intermission, you can buy items and equipment in the form of flowers from the Flower Shop, talk with your teammates about various topics, as well as choosing your next mission.
