– This is the town you’ll be working on restoring through StreetPass

– Producer Tomoya Asano says the idea behind the tweaked difficulty and encounter rate adjustments was to have a game that can be enjoyed while relaxing
– There are some players who feel that the game offers so many jobs and abilities, but not enough challenges
– Therefore, the dev. team wanted to meet that demand

On whether the “Adventurers” enemies will be even more powerful in For the Sequel

“Since they’re monsters you’ll be getting as content from outside the game, we’re currently thinking about how strong they should be. We’re thinking about having their strength match the current progress of the player. In the end, we plan on having monsters who are even stronger than the ‘Adventurers’.”

On the inclusion of the 4 Heroes of Light bosses

“There are many parts of the artwork that are similar, so I thought it’d be a great match. However, there won’t be any related settings between the two worlds… at least for now.”

On whether we’ll be seeing other powerful monsters similar to the ones announced

“Hmm yes, we’re currently thinking of a schedule to add more [bosses] even after the release of the game, so players will be able to continue enjoying the game afterwards. Please look forward to it!”
