It probably will, considering people follow you on screen now.
Courage and wit have served thee well. Thou hast been promoted to the next level.

I'm glad that costumes function like costumes now, trade-off of early stats is worth it imo since the armour sets lost their usefulness eventually.

Also I wonder if the 2D world quests only appear when switched to 2D mode, or if we'll be made aware of them while playing 3D so we know when to switch.

Dual audio is awesome news.
I'll probably pre-order this.
