The game has changed a lot over the course of its evolution. Big changes(Adventure), Major changes(New areas), Minor changes(Quests), and even the ninja changes(okay, they never tell us about them, we have to find out later about those).

All in all, keeping track of everything can be difficult, and while not overly relevant its still nice to see how the game has grown into what it is now. So, in reverse chronological order(newest first), we'll bring them to you!

  • Note: An update applies not just to game changes, but game news as they're providing an update on what they're up to.

Please understand that we are very serious and excited about delivering these new contents to everyone. Thank you for your patience.

We plan to bring your Sword Quest back tomorrow with the loading problem fixed. We apologize for any inconvenience, and thank you for your patience. Yes, the "Adventure" patch is almost here, and we can't wait to show you what we have in store for our fans!
