That makes sense. I've only been playing individual songs and haven't tried the Quest Medley stuff yet. (not entirely true...I tried one and failed on the third song ).

I don't think you can swap. They don't just power up; those abilities will come and go as your characters level up seems kinda random. Except for healing (which of course can save you from game overs) none of the traveling/fighting/rpg elements seem to do anything.
Do you actively trigger skills (i.e. healing) or does it happen automatically?

It seems like they took out a lot of stuff, too. According to gamefaqs the 3DS version had items which I don't see any sign of here.
Bummed they took out the FMV sequences...I was looking forward to watching those.

By the way for Quest Medley if you die that ends that quest completely. Very harsh if you're on quest 19 out of 20. You can avoid this by pausing and doing retry or return to quest menu.

Skills trigger automatically. For healing usually x% chance of healing y% when you go below z% health. The Lance ability seems handy - heals every time that character does a Good or better hit.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say either try again later, reset device, or don't be jail broken?

Sigh... I can't run this on my old ipad...

Did they really get rid of all the EMS (the portion with the footage from the actual game)?

Then again, I don't really care about additional characters, and can see how folks might be pissed it that's what they want.

A couple questions:

1. In the download store, there's a number next to each game, typically something like 1/59. I only see one bundle and a few individual tracks for each game available for purchase, so I'm not sure what that number refers to. Do additional tracks get unlocked as you play?

2. There's a "view collection" option from the main screen. It looks like you collect cards of some sort, but after spending a couple hours with the game and clearing 20+ scores, it's still empty. Is there a trick to this?

3. Are you able to swap out abilities for different characters, or do you only get 2 set abilities that level up as you play? And do these abilities really make any difference?

1. the number indicates the number of tracks available for the FF series against the total number of tracks for that certain type of IAP (single tracks, bundle tracks or characters) e.g. FF1 (the series) has available track for IAP and a number like this 1/59 meaning one track (for FF1 series)/fifty-nine total available tracks for the single track IAP..in short the first number (1) indicates the available track for the series while the second number (59) indicates the total tracks available for sale in the single track category IAP.

That makes sense, thanks.

I expected this to happen. I did NOT expect the crazy amount of DLC, but seems like purchasing all the bundles would sum up to the price of the 3DS game, so it's fair I guess.

This game is quite good for a rhythm game... Nice control and simple... I like action based rhythm game actually, unfortunately, we only got 2 songs, I don't mind about the characters, but at least give us 5-6 songs, and please decrease the size, its kinda big, 636mb after installed...
Delete this first, and will install it again after new update.
