Various User Interface Adjustments for PlayStation 4

Various user interface elements such as the field screen and menu screen have been touched up from the PSP version, enabling a smoother experience on PlayStation 4.

■ Prologue

There is an “end” to this world—. We have been taught this from long ago.

Even the ocean that seems to go on forever has a definite “end” that you cannot go past.

“Because the world is flat.”

Many scholars believe this to be so, and the people believe it, too… But is that really the truth?

No, it probably isn’t. There are still many unknowns left in this world. What are the landscapes that the “Star Shards” depict?

That’s why I’m a strong believer. Indeed. The world has to be a much bigger place.
