Basically, once the drop gauge empties (presumably from taking damage and/or not keeping a combo going), you'll automatically switch to the other character. However, you can apply bonuses you've earned to the other character before switching over.
That's basically it.
What happens if the drop gauge empties on your second character?
The drop is done manually now. Originally you had no choice and you would just drop when the meter emptied. Now you either progress in one story until you hit a wall where you can go no further or your drop to the other character. I like it. Keeps things fresh. Surely there will be incentives to dropping to the other character, like bonuses or something.
i was just wondering how long you can stay as one charater for. like on average. do u stay as a sora for 5 mins and then switch to riku or is it like 30mins or so.
It can be done manually, like Mr. Yippie said.
But it doesn't only happen manually. It happens whenever the gauge drops, that's still in effect. I don't know where you thought that got removed.
Can the gauge drop and character switch occur if one of the characters is in the middle of a boss fight? I find it funny if Sora is swamped with a challenging boss with heart pumping music and chaotic surroundings, the gauge drops and then we switch to Riku in a flower field with pleasant light music playing and birds singing. That would be major mood whiplash.
That is indeed what I said. It would really keep players on edge, kind of like a timed rescue mission~~But it can be helpful. I think Chaser used this example somewhere before, but say Sora is in the middle of a boss battle, with no items remaining and low health. His drop gauge depletes and you switch to Riku wandering around town. In that time, you can restock on items and points, so that when his gauge depletes (or you utilize the manual switch), you can transfer everything to Sora so he'll survive the battle~
