    1. Despite that you use menu instead of a story board to see events, game can still trigger them based on their location.

    1. Right at the bottom of the Balance Adjustments section:
      *New Skill: Tech Charge JA Addition
      *Charged Technics obtain the effect of a Just Attack
      *Recast times occur after activation.

  1. Is chapter 2 already been translated?? i know its too soon to ask this. Just curious.

    dont wanna manually do all the translate by myself. and google, lol

    1. Not completely. I’m not entirely sure how much of it has been but the Epilouge definitely isn’t because that just came out, it’ll probably be a couple of months before it’s done at the current rate.
