Most things carry over from your normal playthrough, such as levels, gear, and items for all party members. However, you will not be able to use all party members from the start, and they will be added along with the story beats.

Your party's levels, gear, and items will all carry over from your regular playthrough into NG+.

New Game+ offers three difficulty modes, Normal, Hard, and Legend, that can be changed at any time during your playthrough. Normal keeps all of the enemy levels the same, meaning that they will start out at levels 1 and 2. New Game+ is for hardcore fans of the series only, as the regular post-game content is how most fans will get the most out of the game. New Game+ feels more focused, and players who want to blast through the game to see the story again without worrying about difficult fights.
