Press A + L at any moment to die.
The game is severely overwhelming, I mean, I struggled to beat a little level 8 crab at the beach when I was level 12. Can't imagine how the other bosses are going to be.
I'm loving the game so far, but I don't like any of the characters, the weird pauses between conversations, the tiny text and the very slow camera when you enter certain areas. But when you are outside NLA, the game is at another level.
