Q2 How do I update the game?
A2 Please refer to the following page for instructions on game updates:
Q3 Which languages does the game support?
A3 The pre-purchased version of the game will only be in Japanese. Updating the game will add English to the language options.
Q4 Can I change the language on a pre-purchased version of the game?
A4 The pre-purchased version of the game will only be in Japanese, and won't offer any other languages. Updating the game will add English to the language options on the main menu.
Q5 I updated the game and tried to start playing, but the game told me the data is from an older version of the game and that I need to start from the beginning of the chapter. What should I do?
A5 This message will be shown if you save your game before updating the game, then try to load it after updating.
Your only option is to answer Yes and restart from the beginning of the chapter you saved your game in.
Q6 What does updating the game do?
A6 Updating to 1.1.0 does the following:
- Fixes several issues that stopped you from progressing in-game
- Adds language options
- Improves game balance
Q7 The battles are too hard… any tips?
A7 Make sure you have the basics covered:
1. Turn your Izzits to Dazzits and use all of your Power!
2. When throwing out Ideas, make sure the enemy doesn't BREAK your Dazzits!
Do this right and it makes a huuuge difference!
Q8 I tend to run out of Ideas later in the fight. What can I do?
A8 You can restore spent Ideas by using the Revive Ideas option in your Headspace.
(Keep in mind that you'll need BPs to do so!)
Ideas will also come back if your Hearts are damaged.
If you're low on both Ideas and BPs, holding on with Struggle might give you an opportunity to counterattack!
Q9 How can I make myself stronger?
A9 You will receive Eurekas whether you win or lose each fight, and can use them to upgrade your Ideas.
You can also complete Subquests to earn Eurekas.
Some villagers will help you in battles if you complete certain Subquests,
so if you're having trouble defeating enemies, you may want to look around for Subquests to complete.
Ideas can be upgraded through the "Eureka Pts" section of the Coalmines, which will be unlocked mid-way through Chapter 2.
