Phantom Brave - Extra Menu.png Phantom Brave - Extra MenuJP.png

  • EDIT doesn't work in the international versions.
  • Tutorial plays the tutorial stage.
  • Quick Start sends you into a new game without the opening cinematic.
  • Test (JP only) sends you in-game with a lot of items on your island.

The international versions of this game removed the EDIT option in the main menu, and removed Test as well. A hack was applied to the USA version to re-enabled EDIT in-game at anytime by pressing certain buttons listed below.

Known controller one inputs:

  • L3 to bring up debug info. This only works when not at the main menu.

  • L2 to enter edit mode (USA only).
  • R2 to enter battle mode (USA only).
  • R3 to return to normal state (USA only).

This option allows you to edit maps, even make entirely new ones. This has untranslated menu items in the international versions. Nothing in those versions will display correctly.
