A few new details have been released about Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings after Degenki DS style had an interview with director and scenario writer Motomu Toriyama and co-producer Eisuke Yokoyama. The two offered some hints on the game's battle system and storyline.

The story will take place after Final Fantasy XII and not before the game like it was reported in an earlier news item. Vaan, a pirate, is in search of a treasure, and has just arrived on the floating continent of Puruvama. The game will take place both on this floating continent and on the ground below.

Because the game will be released on a handheld the game will be playable in short bursts.You'll progress through the story speedily, said Toriyama. The story will be comprised of episodes, building up to a large storyline which promises to maintain the Final Fantasy style drama.

The battle system is the game will be mostly new and there will be a number of shared elements, like the Gambit system, which will be simplified in order to accommodate beginner players. The battle system will be fully playable with the stylus.

Fran and Balthier will definitely join as a party members in the game and Yokoyama is expecting that there will be more party members than in Final Fantasy XII.

Summons will play a big role in the game and there will be more available then in any other Final Fantasy game ever. They will be the key to battles.

Next to Nintendo DS stylus Toriyama hopes to fully use the dual screens too for the battles and game system. They are uncertain if Wi-Fi will be supported.
