Each time you start a new cycle of New Game Plus, all enemies will get a boost in stats to make them stronger and more challenging. Their overall behavior and movement, however, remains the same.
Not only will enemies become stronger, but the amount of souls you receive for slaying them will also increase. When aiming to max out your stats, it is possible to collect souls more efficiently by repeatedly completing the game rather than farm early on.
For more experienced players this may not be as much of an issue, but once you enter New Game Plus the enemies will become much stronger than before, even at higher soul levels. If you're not careful, you could even struggle in the first area of Boletarian Palace. After picking up Soulbrandt inside the Old One, you can safely return to the Nexus using Evacuate or an Archstone Shard, though you won't be able to level up. What you can do is spend the leftover souls from the last two boss fights on items and weapon upgrades to be more adequately prepared for your move into higher difficulty zones.
Second Chance is a Miracle that will be a lifesaver when first going through New Game Plus, which hasn't changed at all in the remake. There are no downsides to it and you can instantly reapply it after it activates. For a more stress free playthrough consider putting some levels into Faith and Intelligence to be able to use this Miracle.
