Alright, Xenoblade fans, Nintendo’s dropped a lengthy Xenoblade Chronicles X video for you to enjoy.

It’s another episode in their Survival Guide. Specifically, it’s the second episode in a five part series. The last one released a month ago, so I imagine the time between new videos is going to narrow between now and Xenoblade Chronicles X‘s actual release date.

The video itself goes over the mechanics of combat, and that specifically includes the Battle Screen, Auto Attacks, Arts and a whole lot more.

The battle systems in Xenoblade games can be a bit nuts to get a hold of. I know it wasn’t until about 20 hours in that I really began to understand the system at work in Xenoblade Chronicles on the Wii. It looks like a lot of the same here, so that’s good for veterans.

If you’re new to the series, though, brace yourself for a complex system that can be super rewarding.

Xenoblade Chronicles X is set to release for the Wii U on Dec. 4, 2015.
