New Game Plus is a feature of Salt and Sanctuary, whereas once the last boss is defeated and the credits roll, players have the option of replaying the game with all their stats and gear from the previous run. The consecutive playthroughs bring a new challenge as enemies increase in difficulty, and hide new treasures for players to continue developing their characters.
Note: The Final Boss can be defeated without triggering the ending, to leave you have to use a Bell of Return, Calling Horn or just leave to the main menu and then continue to reset to your last used sanctuary.
