Battle System[]

Like its predecessor, Radiant Mythology 2 utilizes the Flex Range Linear Motion Battle System from Tales of the Abyss. The free run system is accessible through the PlayStation Portable's analog stick.

Radiant Mythology 2 includes the job system, that allows players to change jobs by talking to the Guild leader.

The game's average story events are either told by regular CG graphics or by skits.
