Trials of Mana 1.1.0 Update To Add New Difficulty Settings
A new Trials of Mana update will be released next month, adding two new difficulty settings as well as new content.
The 1.1.0 update, which will release on October 14th on PlayStation 4 and Switch and the following day on Steam, will add the No Future and Very Hard difficulty settings.
The No Future difficulty will only be available on New Game Plus, will bring all characters back to level 1, and will make regular enemies and bosses way more powerful, adding a time limit for boss battles as well.
The Very Hard difficulty mode will also only be available in New Game Plus, but it will not force characters back to level 1. The option, however, will be available once a new game is started, even if other difficulty levels are selected.
