Said powers that the player will obtain over the course of the game will all center around the ability to manipulate time. Such as the ability to peek through time to see invisible secrets, creating an echo of yourself that you can teleport to mid-combat, or capture enemies in a time pocket dimension.

Combat in the game will allow players to slash and juggle enemies with a pair of twin swords or take them out from a distance with a powerful bow. Letting players handle combat encounters in their own preferred way.
