FFXI's battle system revealed

  New information has been released concerning the battle system in SquareSoft's upcoming RPG, Final Fantasy XI. According to Famitsu magazine in Japan, the online multiplayer is a complete overhaul compared to previous titles in the series. FFXI will no longer have random battles that have been "o' so popular" with Final Fantasy owners; it will now allow players to see monsters and enemies, as they will be visible on the map. The battles will occur in real time, as players will be able to switch between simple attacks, magic, and items using a pop-up battle menu.

   Final Fantasy XI will be released in Japan in spring 2002. No word has been given on the North American release, but expect a late 2002 date.
