Other features include: AI battles where you can instruct you allies to do the fighting on your behalf; a casino, where the token you win can be exchanged for items; party chat, so you can talk with the cast of characters, for advice or just even lite conversation; 360 degree views, and the return Bruise the Ooze, the mini game which was introduced in the DS version of the game.
