Control is very simple - the only buttons used are the directional pad and A button.
The two directional pads are located on either side of the controller at the top.
In more traditional 2-dimensional games, the two directional pads are interchangeable.
I would argue that it's better than the traditional directional pad.
The directional pad will move the screen left and right.
The directional pad moves an image of a character representing the party while not in combat.
In early games, the player uses solely the directional pad to fight.
The pointing-head is on the right side of the unit below the directional pad.
To fly, the play must hold down the directional pad left or right while jumping three times in a row.
The directional pad is used for placing your serves and shots.
