    • How about the difficulty of the demo? not suer easy like most final fantasies, not too difficult to the point where it becomes intrusive and frustrating. Managed to beat it but was on the ropes a few times, which is basically perfect difficulty. So excited!

    • Is it possible to cancel the animation? If yes, how?
