Xenoblade Chronicles has a real-time action-based battle system, where the player manually moves the current lead character in real-time, and party members will "auto-attack" when enemies enter their attack radius. Health may be restored by the player by using healing Arts in battle, or the player may let characters' HP regenerate automatically outside of battle.
