Nexomon: Extinction – Ver. ???

  • Release date: June 13th 2022 (North America, Europe) / June 14th 2022 (Japan)
  • Patch notes:

Tamers! A new post-game questline has become available, along with 46 new Nexomon!

To trigger the post-game events, you’ll need to fulfill some requirements:

  1. Have completed the main story.
  2. Have completed sidequests 11, 35 and 36.

Then, you’ll be able to go to the orphanage and trigger the questline! This content update brings:

  • 46 new Nexomon, along with cosmic versions.
  • A new playable region.
  • A Luring mechanic (unlocked during the new questline) that can boost the apparition rate of a specific Nexomon by x15!
  • A new shop (visit the Talking Tree) where you can buy gadgets such as the Portable Warpstone and Portable Storage!
  • A new tier of Cores, which you can craft after certain events in the new region.

Encounters in the new region have boosted stats, and their level will scale along with your strongest party member (minimum lvl 70), but will yield twice as much EXP. Be ready for a new challenge in the world of Nexomon!

Nexomon: Extinction – Ver. ???

  • Release date: TBA
  • Patch notes:
  • Added Japanese, Korean and Chinese Simplified languages.
  • The Legendaries are no longer cosmic-locked. If you have completed all post-game sidequests you can speak to Eliza and ask her to spawn them in the wild!
  • The Database now displays a small “swords” icon, which counts how many times you’ve defeated a monster. One of its purposes is to improve the cosmic chance for that particular Nexomon. One point per defeat, up to 607 meaning that the new best possible cosmic chance is 1 in 1000. Sadly this counter is not retroactive, your previous battles wouldn’t be factored in.
