Though it only shoots once, the wave itself has a fairly long range. Use it in battles to hit powerful foes from a distance!

Press the R1+L1 buttons during battle to activate Boost mode, temporarily bolstering your abilities in combat.
In addition to increasing damage dealt and reducing damage
taken, Boosting also increases attack and movement speeds,
allowing for bigger and better combos to be performed.

While EXTRA Skills boast tremendous power and massive
ranges of effect, they will instantly deactivate Boost mode,
so be mindful of timing when utilizing them in battle.
