Recent scans from VJump show off variations of what we got in the last trailer from Jump Festa. One thing that wasn't in the Jump Festa trailer was the little window shown on the screenshot above Noctis holding the lance while charging forward.
I saw people talking about it on Twitter and wondered what it said, and I found that it says 螺旋突き.
螺旋 meaning "spiral" and 突き meaning "thrust". The various text around these images describe the idea of closing the distance with this attack and seems to be this weapon's special attack.
What does this remind you of...?
See how it reads "Lightning" at the top in a window. Looks a lot like this window we see in the screenshots in this scan, doesn't it?
The "Spiral Thrust" window shares the same UI style as the current UI in game, which means it's not just added on for the sake of the magazine, but actually looks like a feature yet to be demonstrated in video! I think it's a nice added feature to the battle system to really make it feel more like a Final Fantasy game, it will be fun to see your special attacks show up on screen like this. I'm sure they will do the same for your tandem attacks and other special actions as well.
I just figured I'd post about this, as I thought it was really interesting! I would have posted it in an existing thread, but there wasn't an active one that really would fit, and I didn't want to revive an old thread... So, please excuse me for creating an entire thread just for this.
Please let me know what you think about this if you have an opinion.
