1) Star Ocean: The Divine Pressure doesn’t have a singular assault button
Many different RPGs, together with the Star Ocean franchise, have specified buttons for assault and talent utilization. Nevertheless, Star Ocean: The Divine Pressure has deviated from this technique in an enormous method. This sport has no Assault button! As a substitute, three of your face buttons (Circle, Triangle, Sq., or their equivalents) can map a number of expertise to them.
Underneath the “Celebration” menu, you possibly can set every character’s Chain combos for every button. When you learn the way every assault works, you can begin establishing superior combos this manner and have a distinct one for every of these buttons.
