You’re introduced to dozens of characters who can join or hinder your party. Here is how Nintendo describes the latest installment, “Join Noah and Mio, members of the two opposing nations of Keves and Agnus, on a heartfelt journey through a warring world with a dark secret. Traverse massive, fantastical landscapes and master seamless real-time RPG combat as you expose the true enemy pulling the strings.”
