With more than twice as many playable characters as the previous game, there are a greater variety of moves than ever before. In addition to Signature Moves, taunts and Special Moves, dodges and dashes are also available, enabling you to anticipate enemy attacks and immediately close the gap and get within range to finish them off in a single blow.
Each warrior is able to use powerful techniques known as Signature Moves, which can be activated by using your Aura Reserves. The amount of reserves required will vary by move. As your warrior develops, you can even learn new Signature Moves.
Quickly switch between Signature Moves using the controller! Be sure to check the attack range diagram to the left of the move name and select a move best suited to your current situation. Also, the color beneath the Signature Move name indicates which parameter will receive EXP.
You can fill your Aura Gauge by fighting battles or by picking up items, which will cause your Aura Reserves to fill.

The more Aura Reserves you have full, the stronger your Mighty Aura will be.
