As typical with other games in the franchise, when you complete Tales of the Abyss, you have the opportunity to do a New Game + which will allow you to carry over data from your previous playthrough as well as enhance certain aspects of the game. You purchase these adjustments with Grade from the Grade Shop when you start a New Game +.
