Nintendo revealed the "Divine Pulse" ability, which lets you undo a mistake you made out on the battlefield. This is a limited ability, so you can't spam it after every turn. The feature actually lets you scroll back through various turn choices via a list on the right-hand side of the screen, and then pick one to undo.
