Mechanics

Addition of HELL Mode

After clearing the game, a new HELL difficulty will be unlocked. You can switch to the HELL difficulty from the sign at the airship exit. When playing on HELL, Noah will be instantly knocked out by any damage, so stay alert and sharpen your reflexes! Your progress through HELL mode will be written on the airship signboard.

New Ruins Areas: Grand Treasure Vault, Elemental Monster Lair, and Trey's Bonus Stages

Grand Treasure Vault

Grand Treasure Vaults will appear in the ruins. You'll need three keys to open the treasure chest within, so keep that in mind when deciding where to use your keys.

Elemental Monster Lair

This special lair will appear in the ruins. The traps and rewards will be determined by the element you choose. Dodge the traps and smack down your foes to snag those sweet rewards!

Trey's Bonus Stages

This minigame will appear in the ruins. Talk to Trey and race to destroy as many targets as possible within the time limit. The more targets you destroy, the better the rewards!

New Lilliput: Ace

Ace, a new Lilliput, will be added to the game. Ace's blade makes quick work of foes, crushing them with overwhelming force.

Extra Item Slot in the Shop

An extra item will be added to the shop, increasing the items in stock from five to six. Make sure you've got enough gold to get everything you need for your adventure!

If you've saved and quit the game in the shop and the update is installed, "SOLD OUT" will be displayed over the sixth item slot. This only affects the shop in which you saved your game.

Additional Anti-Aliasing Options

Low- and high-quality options will be added to the Anti-Aliasing section in the Options menu for the Steam version of the game.

Mechanics

Addition of Witch's Trials

The Witch's Trials, a gauntlet battle against powerful foes, will become available after clearing the game. Begin the trials by entering through the portal on the left side of the airship.

Each of the trials will have a battle phase and shop phase. You will begin each battle with a set amount of gold, which will change depending on each trial's results. Use the gold to buy items for the next trial and battle your way to victory!

The trials will also be timed—challenge yourself and see how fast you can sweep through your foes!

An Endurance Trial mode will also be available. In this mode, the items available in the shop will remain the same after each battle. Additionally, Noah's stats will stay the same regardless of any airship repairs, and statues and avatars will be unequipped.

These conditions will not change throughout the trial, so players will be able to compete with others to finish it in the shortest amount of time. Other trial modes will also be available.

Title Screen DLC Link

A link to purchase the DLC will be added to the title screen.

HARD Mode Toggle

The option to toggle between modes will be accessible from the airship.
