Dual system

The Dual system (or Duel system) is a new mechanic that allows characters to co-operate with a nearby comrade.

When a character--the Lead unit--enters battle with a friendly unit next to them, that character will receive three forms of benefits: a boost to their combat stats (Dual Support) and a chance of a "Support unit" performing a follow-up attack (Dual Strike) or shielding them from enemy attacks (Dual Guard).

If the Lead unit is paired up, the Support unit will be their standby partner; otherwise it will be the adjacent ally whom they share the highest support level with.

Dual Support

The stat bonus received depends on the total support rank, which is proportional to the number of allies adjacent to (or paired up with) the Lead unit and their support levels.
