Final Fantasy XII

Hands on with the final Japanese version leaves us wanting more

Vaan, like many RPG heroes before him, hunts monsters for monetary reward. Once you enter Rabanastre's pub for the first time, you'll be set on a quest to find a specific foe. You'll also be introduced to the License Board. This looks much like an elaborate chess board but seems to serve a very similar purpose to Final Fantasy X's Sphere Grid. Different abilites are contained on the board - for example, white magic, and as you spend LP (License Points, of course) you can unlock further ones, opening up new opportunities for character growth.
