You can have up to nine separate saved games, and there's also an autosave slot.
How do I switch between 3D mode and 2D mode?
It's possible to switch between the two modes mid-game at any church or campsite. When you switch, you'll need to select either your current 'chapter' or one you've already completed, and you'll begin play from that point in the story.
As a rule, most information (including party members' levels and attributes, your inventory, your battle history, Draconian Quest choices, quest completion status, accolades etc.) will be carried over from one mode to another unless there is a story-related reason for this not to be the case. You will also be unable to carry over your progress through Drustan's Labyrinth.
Can I play without an internet connection?
Yes. It's possible to complete the game without an internet connection.
Can I turn voices on and off?
Yes. Select "Misc." -> "System Settings" -> "Audio Settings" to turn voices—including the protagonist's voice—on or off.
How do I switch between Japanese and English audio?
Select "Misc." -> "System Settings" -> "Audio Settings" to change the voice language.
