Can someone explain the battle system on this game?
Also could you compare it with any other RPG

This is an action RPG, where you press a button to swing your weapon (or fire it, in the case of Hugo), and you move around and dodge enemies using your controls.

This style of battling is similar to that of, say, the Zelda games (such as Link to the Past) or Secret of Mana.

This does not use a traditional JRPG turn-based or active-time battle system.

I'm interested in this game too. So is it more like a hack n slash type game? You say it's like A Link To The Past. Is there the same type of things like sword attacks, bow attacks and that hook shot thing? Or does your charecter have a certain weapon type that you upgrade? Also, how is the story? Worth me playing the first 2 games or because it's a prequel it doesn't matter?

Thanx for any responses.

It's an action RPG, you pick a character who weilds a specific type of weapon and has a specific set of skills that you can use with that type of weapon. As you play the game you can upgrade your weapons and armor, get more skills, level up, and you'll also get another weapon later on.

The story is pretty good and develops really well. It'll keep you interested until the end. You don't have to play the first 2 because this game is Origin, it happens at the very beginning of the franchise.
I have only played one of the three playable characters, so I am not sure for the other two. For the first one, you have a basic melee attack, which you can use quickly and unlimitedly, and then you also have a magic attack based on your currently-equipped magic item. Additional accessories can allow you to charge your magic item for a more powerful attack. There are three different magic items. One of them gives you a ranged attack at the cost of MP; the other two are a hovering attack (which doubles as a mobility enhancer) and a powerful multi-hit attack.

The second character I know has a ranged basic attack. I don't know what his magic attacks are.

All the characters can also make use of another special attack called "burst". I haven't ever used this so I don't know what it's like.
