About Opinions Received in the Survey
- About the inventory menu and other interfaces
Multiple things were pointed out about the inventory menu and other interfaces.
Regarding solutions for the inventory menu and other interfaces, including problems caused/influenced by other interfaces, it is expected that it will take some time for such measures, as the team intend to proceed carefully.
The team is very sorry for the inconvenience and ask for your understanding.
- About effects
There were comments that the effects were sometimes too bright.
For effects, we are considering if features such as the option setting “Reduce Some Lighting Effects” from PSO2 can be implemented.
Solutions will likely take some time, so the team ask for your patience.
- About the frequency rate for the appearance rate of Gathering (Minerals)
There were many comments that there were few minerals.
Regarding Limit Breaking and Unlocking Potentials that use minerals, the plan is for limit breaking and Unlocking Potentials to be done gradually over play,
So the team believe that the current appearance rate for minerals is appropriate. The team ask for your understanding.
