The Last Story is a Japanese RPG that has recreated the typical fighting style. サカグチ ヒロノブ(Sakaguti Hironobu) the creator of Final Fantasy Series, wanted to introduce a more free style movement RPG with a ally monster capacity. The game is made to recruit human enemy allies to help you on your journey. The game has a combat system designed to send recruited help into battle immediately, at a certain time, or in a strategic manner. You can send the troops in after you strike or before. In the video they show the great design to combat. This should be a Final Fantasy option.
No news on a release date in US/EU, but be assured I am watching the Nintendo.jp for an announcement.
