According to the PlayStation blog post by Square Enix's Sho Ishida, the game is set to feature the fastest and mightiest action to date. Players will be able to make a direct assault on enemies at high speeds, utilize skills to dispatch or confuse enemies, and freely fly around the world while looking for battles.
