Square Enix is continuing to trickle down a myriad of Final Fantasy XV assets, and they just sent in a batch of screenshots showcasing the latest features revealed for the game.

We get another look at the “wait mode,” introduced yesterday, described as follows in the official press release.

During a special stage presentation, game director Hajime Tabata revealed the “wait mode,” an option that allows players to gain a strategic advantage by momentarily pausing the action and making the game easier to play for those who aren’t versed in action games. While in “wait mode,” the player can freely target enemies, aim magic spells, select teammate abilities, and much more. This mode can be switched on and off at any time during the game.

On top of that, we can enjoy a few screenshots of the flying Regalia Type-F and the city of Altissia.

Last but not least, we get the direct feed version of the images of A King’s Tale: Final Fantasy XV, in development for PS4 and Xbox One, that also get an official blurb:

“Square Enix also revealed A KING’S TALE™: FINAL FANTASY XV, a retail exclusive, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system downloadable title that will be available exclusively for those who pre-order through GameStop. Taking place as a fairy tale told by King Regis to a young Noctis, the story is set 30 years before the main game and features retro-style inspired graphics centered around a fast-paced combat system with influences from modern gaming. The in-depth battle system blends intense attacks, devastating magic, mighty summons and unique companion attacks into a singular gaming experience through three diverse locations based on the world of FINAL FANTASY XV.”
