As for what the new mode will bring, co-director Tai Yasue previously mentioned "We wanted to do it the right way so it's not just superficial. We wanted a new experience there, and we realized there was a lot we could really actually do. We added new abilities for example, for the critical mode, so you have a more technical based offensive battle style that you can enjoy."
