New Game+, as the name implies, allows players to carry over progress into a new playthrough and engage in new combat scenarios. Upgrades, abilities, Rot and outfits will all carry over. In addition to new abilities, players can also earn Charmstones, which provide “adjustments” to combat.

The Spirit Guide Trials provide various challenges, namely Obstacle Courses, Boss Reflects and Wave Defenses, which are replayable. Completing these unlocks new outfits for Kena, inspired by people encountered throughout the story. You can also earn some unique Charmstones and alternate colors by completing bonus objectives in the trials. Deluxe Edition owners can also avail of “Shadow”, a new exclusive outfit.
