New Game Plus

Quick Definition

This is a special mode that becomes available when you've beaten some games. A new game+ option means that you can begin a new game with various benefits, such as starting out with everything you'd earned in the first play through. In other words, you can start a new game plus some cool bonuses.

Sometimes a game will compensate for whatever benefits there are by making these modes harder than usual, but they are frequently just there to let you play with your endgame equipment.
