■ Fight Off Never-ending Hordes of Monsters!
A new challenge after you clear the game!
By loading up your save data after clearing the game, a new route called the “Gate of Underworld” will appear on the field. The Gate of Underworld is a post-game element where you can take on never-ending hordes of monsters to challenge how many you can defeat. The types of monsters that appear are random, and the more you defeat, the stronger they become. Enjoy Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists in the post-game by earning experience points and seeing how far you can go.
—Hordes of monsters have appeared at the Gate of Underworld, which has suddenly appeared. Nelke and the others set out to investigate the crisis endangering their town.
—The number of battles Nelke and company face at the Gate of Underworld will be recorded. Prepare your party and items, and take on the challenge as many times as you want to get the highest record.
—Strong enemies will also appear. Starting at Battle 5, even boss-class monsters will show up.
