Press Start spoke to Game Director, Stig Asmussen, who went into a little more detail about the combat system in the title.

“[The combat] means you really have to understand not only the enemy that you’re going up against, but the group of enemies, and they each have their own strengths, and they each have their own weaknesses. You have to figure out what tools that you have in your skill set to best take them down,” said Asmussen.

He went on to say that some of the game’s influences come courtesy of Nintendo.

“A lot of it’s influenced by, you know — If you look at a game like Zelda Wind Waker, as you get different abilities, each enemy is crafted in a certain way, or even Metroid, or something like that, the enemies are crafted in a certain way that once you upgrade, you can think about how you’re going to approach them differently, and maybe they aren’t as big a challenge as they were at one point,” Asmussen said.

Sounds VERY promising.
