Director: “The feel and reverberation when you’ve played this game is probably the sense of ‘companion.’ After having seen everything through repeated test play, this is what always remains in the end.”

– Conversations might be related to the skill system
– You can have conversations with A partners within the “intervals” of realtime battles
– “Trivial” conversations when you’re on the move as well

– Producer says your comrades in the game talk a lot, including during battle and when on the move
– Producer: “You’ll hear conversations amongst your comrades in all sorts of situations.”

– Producer: “Players are surrounded in their comrades’ conversations.”
– Producer believes players will realize the warmth of being surrounded by friends when they’re alone
