The game is getting a slick special edition, including a pop-up book emulating the style of the game and introducing all 8 characters and their places of origin, a map, "sound selection CD", and a coin based on the in-game currency.

The Direct video also went into some detail about the game's job systems, which seems to draw inspiration from Bravely Default and Bravely Second: End Layer, two other titles in Square Enix's expansive library. As a Merchant, Tressa has the ability, or Path Action, Purchase, which allows her to buy items from NPCs that might not be available in shops to other characters.

The game is coming on July 13th, exclusively for Nintendo Switch. Meanwhile, Alfyn's "Inquire" ability allows him to gain more in-depth information from people he speaks with, which can reveal handy tips such as local discounts. That demo released previous year got me hooked and I've been dying to find out more information about the game.
