Turn Order Eye Button

When pressed, this button will show the order in which cards in battle will act. This will help new players read the battle order more easily and plan moves accordingly.

Improved Tutorial

We’ve extended the tutorial to include the following: moving companions, enemy special attacks, crown interactions and much more. We hope these changes will help onboarding for new players and be a helpful reminder for those who start new save files.


2 New Enemies!

Gogong will appear in early battles to teach the player about Smackback and Reaction effects.
Minimoko replaces the Makokos in the Infernoko boss battle, to make this battle’s difficulty more in line with the Bamboozle boss battle.


Battle-Specific Map Icons

Every battle now features a unique icon and name, allowing you to see which battle you’ll be coming up against, and switch around your Companions and Crowns before the battle to prepare accordingly.

You can now leave a treasure event without taking an item. This has been a highly requested option from players, so it’s now possible in the game (:
