What is Time Attack?
Time Attack is a mode exclusive to Definitive Edition that pits you against a selection of waves where the goal is to defeat them in the quickest time possible. Upon success, you’ll receive new cosmetic armour exclusive to Definitive Edition along with Noponstones, a new currency used to purchase items from the Nopon Archsage such as Gems and eventually, Master level Arts Manuals.
When are they available?
You’ll first gain access to Time Attack by heading through the orange portal on Bionis’ Leg for the first time. The items you can purchase will be limited and you’ll only have one Time Attack available to you but as you progress through the story (and clear Future Connected), you’ll unlock more difficult ones.
