Curing yourself with MP (magic points) is a feature that has been in most other Final Fantasy games until Lighting Returns: Final Fantasy XIII comes along…
Healing yourself with MP has been helpful if you’re low on health and have a lack of potions in your items section. This feature might be more restricted in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.
The game’s design director Yuji Abe revealed the following on Dengeki:
“In this game, Cure isn’t a regular ability, but a part of the GP effects. It will require the use of GP in order to heal yourself.”
GP stands for “Glory Points” that allow you to do various things such as teleporting and stopping time. You’ll also need GP to revive yourself too. GP can be earned after each battle is won.
Are you worried that Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will be slightly harder now that curing yourself cannot be done so freely?
