This game is notable for two things. First, it is Flight-Plan's first and only StrategyRPG to make it out of Japan, although only to North America. Secondly, it is a modern[[note]]post-VideoGame/{{Persona}}[[/note]] Atlus game that does NOT contain the original Japanese voice acting. The latter was presumably due to the original game actually taking up most of the space on a single layer DVD and not having the room for two audio tracks.

* WarmUpBoss: Otakuphant, Kaelrunis, or Moon Belator depending on which tale you pick first. Mars Belator has all the elements of this, but isn't since, you know, you have to beat a tale to fight him in the first place.

* BadExportForYou: One of the complaints about the North American release was that Atlus did not include the original Japanese voice acting.



* NoExportForYou: Surprisingly averted for those in North America. Played straight for everyone else outside Japan.
