I like that roller skates take you out of grid control.
I don't think this is true
Something about it was said in a Q&A and it seems that way in the trailer.
Q - Why is the game still locked to a grid? A - It's a lot easier to plot out when scripted events will happen. HOWEVER, using the analogue pad with the rollerskates movement is much more free (8 directions, etc)
Currently awaiting: Lunar Knights 2, Pikmin 3, XY, WW HD, LR:FFXIII, X, LoZ U, FFXV, KHIII Skarmory would slap the hell outta you
