Free Content Update with New Features Added

1. Challenging New Sacred Tree Dungeons
The Sacred Tree, located in the starting town of Shukuba Beach, holds difficult dungeons with special rules. Select from different modes for a more challenging adventure.

Different Modes Available

  • Normal Trial: Replay the dungeons of the main game with the same rules while also being able to change your playable character. For dungeons that had a boss battle at the end, you can now challenge them again.
  • Time Trial: Race to the finish and strive to complete the dungeon in as little time as possible.
  • Turn Trial: Master efficiency by completing the dungeon in as few turns as possible.
  • Countdown Trial: Aim to complete the dungeon with a time limit on every turn and the dungeon as a whole.
  • Challenge Trial: Set your own personal restrictions to truly challenge yourself, such as completing the dungeon without using certain items or collapsing.

*There is also a mysterious sixth mode.

2. Play using "Kokatsu Shiren"
The Kokatsu Shiren form from the main game can now be selected as a playable character in the Sacred Tree trials. Previously, Kokatsu Shiren could only be used in the Cavern of Suiryu dungeon, but will now also be available in other dungeons.

Kokatsu Shiren Form
Kokatsu and Shiren combine into a new form with new skills. While unable to equip anything, Kokatsu Shiren can unleash special attacks by expending Fullness.

*The Kokatsu Shiren form can be used in the Sacred Tree trials only after clearing the Cavern of Suiryu dungeon.

3. Dojo Challenge Mode
Dojo Challenge Mode has been added to the Monster Dojo. Enjoy mini-stages where you can learn the characteristics of each monster.

*Dojo Challenge Mode can be played after clearing Serpentcoil Island in the main story, and after the Monster Dojo becomes available.

4. Expanded Storehouse
The capacity of the Item Holder Storehouse, where you can deposit items and weapons found in the dungeon, will expand from 180 items to 960 items.

5. Balance Adjustments and Other Improvements Added

Second Content Update Coming Soon
A second update is in development, targeting a Summer 2024 release. This update will introduce even more new content and functional improvements. Stay tuned for further announcements regarding release and content details.
