- No "complex command menus" for combat
- "Fast and intuitive" touch controls
- You create a character and control him in realtime, there are AI-driven party members
- Timing based combo attacks

-The battle system is simple and easy to play since it gets rid of complicated commands, however, the battle system is still very deep.
-The basis of the battle system is using the skills you have along with the ones of your "fellows" (the other AI controlled party members) in quick succession to create combos.
-The terrain you do battle in apparently also factors in your strategy somehow.
-The main character in BoF6 has the "Power of the Dragon", and you can customize it by changing sex, face, hairstyle and such.
-Character growth is different from the previous entries, here the abilities and the "memorized skills" (actually I'm not sure what this is, maybe there's a Master system or something in place? 覚えるスキル) have special traits in them, presumably stat boosts and such.
-Fellows can be either humans, fairies, felines or "grassrunners" (this is how the humans with animal features like Momo have been called in localized BoF games)
-The online component revolves around rebuilding Dragnir Village, which was destroyed by the Schwarz Empire. Each player can rebuild it as s/he sees fits, but there's also a cooperative element to it where you can travel to other players' villages and help them out by intercepting attacking enemies.

She encountered and helped the wounded main character per chance after coming across Dragnir Village just as it was being attacked.
