Gestures can be used to communicate with other players or activate some in-game events.
The gesture menu can be accessed by pressing the Select / Back button.
They can also be used to obtain certain hidden items or access areas when the right gesture is performed at the relevant location.

Initially, only seven gestures are available, but several more can be unlocked while progressing through the game, most of them by talking to various Characters.
