Gran Pulse - a place fallen to ruin where nature has reclaimed the land and wildlife has been left to roam free. Brutal, unyielding, survival is harsh and the gameplay here reflects this way of life. Be prepared for a jump in difficulty once you get out onto Gran Pulse proper.

For now, have a read up on any new information and check the shops for new items if you wish. You will also want to reset your team and Paradigms again and check your weapons and accessories. Upgrading them may also be a good idea if you find yourself struggling against the enemies here. Continue through the canyon when you’re ready.
