Riviera - The Promised Land 03

Select the desired Position Shift.

Position Change is a battle mechanic used in Riviera: The Promised Land. It allows the player to tactically alternate their formation. This is key in a battle strategy, as the player can take advantage of it to influence the targeting system, or anticipate an attack. It becomes available in Chapter 2 - Pursuit of Truth, and can be accessed by pressing select in battle to bring up the menu.

There are restrictions to this feature. To flip the formation left/right, the Overdrive Meter must be filled to the first tier. To alternate the formation between Attack (2-1) and Magic (1-2), the Overdrive Meter must be filled completely. Also, only one swap can be performed per turn.
