● Adjusts the rules for obtaining the Elemental Resonance effects: when there are four characters in your party, or four or more characters in your party due to trial characters, Elemental Resonance will take effect as normal, with the specific Elemental Resonance effect determined by the corresponding elements of the first through fourth characters in your party (prior to the adjustment, Elemental Resonance would not take effect if a Trial Character was present).
● Removed the second confirmation pop-up window for skipping the cutscene for the second phase of the “Shouki no Kami, the Prodigal” boss fight. Now, clicking “skip” will directly skip the cutscene without a need for confirmation.
