Mother 3 makes selecting your battle commands simple too, even if you can't read Japanese (that's good since the game sees the return of Mother 2's rolling HP meter.)

When selecting commands, the character pops up above their HP/PP box to let you know it's their turn. After that, you select symbols that represent commands. No Japanese required so far!

 

After the prologue, you'll have access to five different commands for each party member you gain control of.

The five commands are (in order):

  • Attack
  • Goods
  • Skills/PSI
  • Defend
  • Run
