LOS ANGELES – October 25, 2023 – Netmarble, a leading developer and publisher of high-quality mobile games, has launched a new update for Ni no Kuni: Cross Worlds. With the new update, players can experience a variety of Halloween-themed rewards and also its latest contents including a new episode, and in-game events.
The new episode, Night of Sparkling Candies, is centered around the Halloween concept to bolster the seasonal momentum. Players can harvest Pumpkin Candy, cook it, and present it to NPCs to earn episode related Power Ups, Currencies, Pass EXP and more. Further, the latest update presents new types of content, such as ‘Hide-n-Seek’ and ‘Shadow Piñatas’.
The new mini-game, Hide-n-seek, lets characters transform into a cat where players will be randomly chosen as Shadowtails (hiders) or Lighttails (seekers). Be the last one to survive! Shadowtails can only win if they remain alive until the end of the game, at which point the Lighttails must locate all the Shadowtails to take the trophy for the mini-game. Various rewards, including ‘Jelly Bottle’, 'Evolution Fruit Basket' and more, are available regardless of the result.
The Shadow Piñata Event will be open every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday during the Night of Sparkling Candies episode period. Collect Light Pumpkins scattered throughout Evermore to stand against the Shadow Effigy. Throw Light Pumpkins filled with the power of light at the shadows to defeat the boss. Rewards for taking down the boss include Miraculous Warding Doll Chests and Piñata's Enhancement Stone Selection Bundle.
Several Halloween events are available, including:
● Night of Sparkling Candies Episode Guide Event : Missions will be unlocked during the event period. When completing missions related to the Night of Sparkling Candies Episode, various rewards are available including Bat Mask Costume and Starfall Magic Tome Selection Chest.
● Halloween Catch Cluu! Event: Complete missions such as ‘Donate to the Kingdom ’ to earn Event Tickets that can be used to play the “Catch Cluu” minigame. In the minigame, players get to tap randomly-generated Cluus to earn numbers of rewards that could help power up familiars. Rewards for completing minigames include the 'Rare 6★ Toy Chest’.
