    XVIII. Frequently Asked Questions

    Q: What does the "f" in the title mean?

    A: Future. This is an enhanced port of a game that was originally on the Wii, and it added an epilogue after the game that's known as the Future Arc, hence the "f" in Tales of Graces f.

    Q: Is there dual audio?

    A: No, the voices are only in English.

    Q: When will the DLC costumes be available?

    A: To put it simply, we don't know yet. No one knows yet. There are DLC costumes on the disc though, so we will likely see them soon enough.

    Q: Battle system; what do?

    A: You can read a full detailed explanation up in the IV. Gameplay section, but basically you have CC that can be spent to use attacks, of which each has a set CC value. You can use attacks until you run out, then you must let it recharge before you can attack again (holding square can speed this up). A-Artes are arranged like a tree and you must travel the branches to get to the arte you want whereas B-Artes can be used freely. Effectively using both will increase your CC, so practice until you get the hang of it.

    Q: I want to get the difficulty trophies for the final boss. Do I have to play through the whole game on that difficulty to get it?

    A: No. All you have to do is beat the final boss on that difficulty to get the trophy, even if you have played on Easy or Normal for every single battle beforehand. You can even make a save beforehand and reload four times to get all of them if you wish.

    Q: What are the chest passwords?

    Q: Why is Pascal the only character missing their mystic artes?

    A: Because you haven't done the sidequests for them! Her first can be found on the road out west of Gralesyde if you speak with the bandit multiple times, her second is in the Sabel Izolle research building and her third is on Mt. Zavhert; when you reach the sign, head west and then south to find a chest.
