According to a report by Shonen Jump (as translated by Andriasang), Final Fantasy XIII is kicking archaic RPG tropes like “leveling up” and “experience points” to the curb. Have no fear, though, intrepid grind-a-holics; the Crystalium System’s got your back.

As you defeat enemies in battle, you earn Crystal Points (CP). These can be exchanged for new skills and abilities, shown on a circular chart in the Crystalium management screen. As you learn certain skills, new paths on the chart open up,” reads the report.

Stats – like HP, for example – can also be increased by eating a few bites of rock candy.
