Yoshida did a recent interview for a Japanese radio station and someone over at Siliconera gave a rough translation.

Naoki Yoshida said the game would feature a story mode that gives players access to special support skills and abilities that will allow them to get through the game sections easier so they can just enjoy the story of the game.

Likewise, he said he hoped to for the story to “create a world within the Final Fantasy universe that those who understand the complexities and realities of good and bad can be excited for.”

Likewise one of the themes of the games if the hardship and experiences of becoming an adult.

Good, games should always have options like this as well as hard modes for those who like a challenge.

I can see one scenario where I'd use it: the gameplay is such a boring drudge fest that I simply can't be bothered anymore and want to see how it plays out :p

They kind of did something like that for Nier Automata, didn’t they? Can’t see myself using it but it’s definitely a good trend to keep alive

It makes total sense to me, give players the option of how they want to experience the game.

ill be honest: my first playthroughs of long-awaited games have usually been on Easy (or Very Easy, hello MGS) difficulty just so i could cart through to see what the plot was, so i appreciate this kind of thing (hard mode second playthrough tho)

I've only ever gone back and played through hard mode in the Kingdom Hearts games. Otherwise, I just play on Normal difficulty. I may have played some Fire Emblem games on Hard difficulty at the start because that series tends to get ridiculously easy after you build up your units.

since it is about hardship, will we see someone die? like a certain flower girl from previous game ?

I suppose if they keep up their copyright claiming, this is likely their attempt at making people who don't pay for the game but watch Let's Plays of it, into people who do pay for the game and play on story mode.
