ANIME-INSPIRED RPG KNIGHTS CHRONICLE CELEBRATES FIRST-YEAR ANNIVERSARY WITH FAN-FAVORITE EVENTS
Yo-kai Watch Collaboration with new Heroes and Advent Dungeon Now Live for Players
LOS ANGELES (June 13, 2019) – Today, after a year of enthusiastic fan support, Netmarble Corp. is kicking off the first-year anniversary for its anime-inspired mobile role-playing game (RPG) Knights Chronicle with all-new anniversary events, content, and collaboration for players to enjoy. Starting now, players can explore the all-new Labyrinth Dungeons, which offers three stages to choose from and conquer. Players must choose Heroes carefully by examining a stage’s enemies and rewards as they won’t be able to join in other Labyrinth Dungeons until it is refreshed.
Netmarble is also collaborating with LEVEL-5 Inc., on Knights Chronicle’s latest collaboration with the mega-hit game YO-KAI WATCH™ to feature fan-favorite characters in the game. Players have until July 2nd to summon Jibanyan, Komasan, Komajiro, and Hoverryan to their party of Heroes. An all-new Advent Dungeon is also available for players to defeat and collect the Yo-Kai Blizzaria to their team.
Knights Chronicle players can also look forward to the following:
- New Awakenings for Electra and Edwin – Both Electra and Edwin can now be awoken by using growth materials and a six★ version of either hero to achieve increased statistics, a new Awakened Passive skill upon reaching max Awakening level, and a new in-game appearance.
- First-Year Anniversary Event – By playing the newly added ‘Blizzaria’ Advent Dungeon, players can acquire ‘1 Year Anniversary Summon Tickets’, which can be used to summon individual Heroes.
Knights Chronicle features classic turn-based role-playing gameplay, a beautiful Japanese animation-inspired art style and a compelling story showing the same standard of quality as console and PC RPGs. The game also sports standout features, including real-time party play where fans can form parties of up to five members to challenge multiplayer dungeons, explosive 3D-animated skills that demonstrate the game’s flashy and gorgeously detailed visuals, and over 100 heroes for players to choose from.
Knights Chronicle is available in 140 countries. For more information, please visit http://knightsgbweb.netmarble.com/.
