Double Duel ("Dual Tag" in the Japanese version) is a Local Play
co-op mode where two Awakening players
team up to fight computer-controlled opponents in a 2 vs 1 knock-out
(Sumia and Ricken take out an Outrealm enemy)
The Double Duel mode can be accessed via the Wireless menu, when
outside of battle. Solo players should be warned that 2 players are
required to play this mode.
Players choose 3 characters each and face off against a team of

during each turn--if the Lead unit is faster than the enemy, they
will get to attack first and vice versa. After successively
defeating an enemy, all friendly characters recover 5% HP and any
fallen characters are revived with 1 HP before facing the next
When all enemies in the team have been defeated, both players will
obtain an item and Renown as rewards.
