  • Improved support for unknown controllers
  • Credits can now be skipped after they have been watched once.

  • Popup Screen Interaction Change: Players now need to hold a button to close popup screens instead of just pressing it once.
  • Enhanced Item Purchase and Level Up Mechanic: When buying items or leveling up, players can now hold the button to continuously increase the numbers, instead of needing to press the button individually each time.
  • Improved Item Identification: When picking up special items that trigger a popup screen, the type of the item (e.g., Charm, Stigma, Melee Weapon) is now displayed below its name for clearer identification.
