The recently released JRPG The Witch and the Hundred Knights will soon be receiving an update patch that will give gamers a new difficulty option. In case Normal Mode is a little overwhelming for you, the patch will introduce a “Casual Mode” to make gameplay easier.

In Casual Mode, enemies’ attack strength and defense will be reduced, making it easier for players to take them down unscathed. For those worried about missing out on the game’s story, not to worry — there isn’t any penalty for switching difficulties. You’ll get the same story in Casual Mode as you would in Normal Mode. The switch between modes can be accomplished by talking to a NPC in-game (as seen below), and you’re free to go between the two as much as you want.
