Producer Message

Dark Falz Solus and Leciel Exploration received high marks for their playability, however, there were some issues. The hurdle for participation was set so high that fewer people played than what the development team expected. Among those who did play, many felt that the rewards were inadequate with the difficulty level or playtime.

The development team apologizes for the problems with the initial content design and reward balance.

In response to this, in October and November, they have been working to normalize the game, albeit gradually, through various improvements and boost campaigns. To make NGS easier to play, they made significant improvements and mitigants in conjunction with the Super Genesis Festival.

Going forward, they will redouble their efforts to utilize what they've learned from this case to ensure the design and balance will be appropriate for the in-game environment at the time of release.

In addition, they will make improvements and relax requirements in existing content while releasing new content as they stick to NGS to make it easier for everyone to play.

ARKS Operation Report

The wait time before a multi-party quest launches is too long. Can you shorten the time?

A new feature was implemented for Halphiria Lake Interception Part 2 on Dec 13th where the quest will launch a few seconds after all quest participants have finished loading.

We plan to have future quests of the same type work this way too, as well as, any content that requires a smoother replay process.

Can you add Battledia: Purple where you fight Starless Gigantix?

We are currently considering adding a Battledia: Purple where you fight Starless Gigantix.

We are hoping to do it a little differently from the previous Battledia: Purple.

Could we get character creation data of NPCs and other story characters?

We are working on a way to make the creation data for some of the major characters in NGS available for download from the official site.

In addition, we are planning to release a Scratch where you can win the required items needed to recreate them in-game.

There are also cases where we are unable to provide character creation data that perfectly recreates unique versions of NPC characters.

Is it possible to prevent the confirmation screen from appearing for items that are often used as grind materials, such as Gold Prim Sword II, regardless of their Rarity?

In response to this request, we are working on removing the confirmation screen for Gold Prim Sword II and Gold Prim Armor II when selected as grind materials in the Item Enhancement Lab.
