Very good disc build, all offline\single player base content is on disc.
Fight money earnable entirely offline, used to buy personalization items and costumes. Some outfits are unlockable in the the Super Ghost battles.

Issues found:
No progress timer during the installation (offline, 40\45 minutes), you just get a message at the end of the installation, though.

Encountered a multi-second freeze in the cutscene between chapter 9 to 10 (Xiaoyu after beating Jacks bots).
Selecting the chapter directly didn't reproduce the freeze.

Minor graphical issue in the cutscene between chapter 13 to 14.

In customization, when equipping the “naginata” on Alisa, the weapon does not work correctly (she doesn't take it in her hands, but the opponent gets damage from it, nonetheless)
