It be much shorter however if you use the seminars and rest often in lieu of time consuming exploration or battles. If you complete lots of side quests and grind, this number could be closer to 65 hours.

Hard Difficulty

One route takes 35-40 hours to finish, if you use every weekend to either explore or battle. There are no endless battles to grind, but you can still grind Professor Levels by fishing. This still takes a bit longer as battles are harder, so you have to be more thoughtful, careful and you're more prone to restarting missions.If you complete lots of side quests and grind, this number could be closer to 65 hours.

The whole game will last you around 120 hours if you play all routes in one difficulty. The bonuses gained from New Game Plus eliminate a lot of the grindy aspects of the first run through, severely reducing the time each route takes.

Is It Worth Replaying?
