So might sound like a dumb question, but is there any downside whatsoever to starting a new game in a different slot? Like for achievements, extras, or anything? I noticed that bonus characters are unlocked for all slots, indicating that everything is saved to an overall "game data" file I assume. So I guess there's no reason not to utilize all the save slots available?
