Anyone know if the Japanese version of XIII is harder than the English version? I'm thinking if so, that would be why they released an Easy Mode update in Japan.

The normal difficulty is the same in both Japanese & English versions. In easy mode of the Japanese version, enemies have less HP, and when they are staggered the characters will do more damage than usual. Also, normally, for boss fights you are given like 20 minutes to finish them. If you couldn't, then the boss will cast Doom to defeat the party. But apparently in easy mode it gives the player more time than that.

Why would they release an Easy Mode only in Japan then?
