Heyas, Knights! As alluded to up top in the title, we’ve got a whole smorgasbord of updates to share with y’all. A new character, a new story event to pair, and the return of the Princess Gala –  get ready to stop, drop, and roll, because this update is fire. Let’s take a hop, skip, and a jump and get into it!



Don your kimonos and slip on those getas, as the Princess Gala is making an Eastern revival, featuring none other than the brand new character Kuka (Oedo)! While retaining a lot of the bulk and magic defense that her original version is known for, this traditional garb remixes her toolkit into additional support skills that debuff enemies and increase magic damage output, resulting in a character that can both tank a ton of incoming magic damage, and help her allies deal a bunch of outgoing magic damage. 


The Princess Gala is more than just an opportunity for Kuka (Oedo) to shine – during the week-long campaign, you’ll also enjoy twice the normal draw rates for 3★ characters, making your Jewels go twice as far as they normally go when performing draws. Plus, the sword-wielding, critical hit-dealing femme fatale, Christina, also will make a limited-time return while the Princess Gala is happening. If you’re brand new to the world of Astraea, the Princess Gala is the perfect time to round out your roster and meet new friends. If you’re a seasoned veteran of the land, get the most bang for your Jewel and maybe pick up some characters you’re missing! It’s a win-win for everyone.


The Princess Gala featuring Kuka (Oedo) and Christina will be live for a week, from 4/5, 23:00 UTC to 4/12, 22:59 UTC. During the campaign, you’ll enjoy boosted 3★ draw rates, and both Kuka (Oedo) and Christina can also be obtained via character points. While this isn’t the last opportunity you’ll have to obtain Kuka (Oedo), after this time period, the increased 3★ will go back to normal, and Christina will not be available. Mark your calendars!



While the Princess Gala may end after a week, Kuka (Oedo) isn’t done dancing just yet! She’ll be enjoying her own dedicated Focus Gacha after the Princess Gala ends, where plenty of eyes will be cast her way (trust us, she’s into that). While your character points will reset after the Princess Gala ends, Kuka (Oedo) will still stick around in the main Premium Gacha pool; however, this will be your best opportunity to obtain her before her solo performance ends. Keep that in mind!


The Kuka (Oedo) Focus Gacha runs for an additional 6 days, from 4/12, 23:00 UTC to 4/28, 22:59 UTC. 



Finally, we’ve got one last special login campaign for y’all – it’s the return of the Landosol Cup! Once per day throughout the 10-day campaign, you’ll be able to pick your favorite character out of a random four and cheer them on as they race to see who’s the fastest in all of Landosol. You’ll receive Jewels based on how well your chosen heroine does – anywhere from 250 Jewels for 4th place all the way up to 500 Jewels for first. It’s free Jewel estate.


The Landosol Cup #2 Daily Login Bonus runs for 10 days, from 4/2, 13:00 UTC to 4/12, 12:59 UTC.



Y’all might be wondering why Kuka’s putting on such unique garb. Worry not – she’s just fitting into the culture of Oedo Town, the centerpiece of the brand new story event, Shogun Chronicles: The Whitewing Samurai! Join Monika’s crew of misfits and adventurers as Weissflügel makes their collective way to a town at the cross-section of Occidental and Eastern culture. But the vibes are slightly different from the last time Ninon was here… what’s up with that? Also, why is Kuka flying at increasingly alarming speeds across the town?


This event features unique, exclusive boss battles, where you can test your skills in three varying difficulties: Normal, Hard, and Very Hard. Very Hard is set to be the toughest of the bunch, and is only clearable once per day. If you’re craving even more of a challenge, we’ve also prepared another Special difficulty Boss, with unique challenges and mechanics that will challenge you in new ways across three different modes. Of course, for each boss you best, you’ll earn various rewards for your troubles, such as Victory Medals, equipment, and more. 


In order to fight the bosses, though, you’ll need to spend Boss Tickets. These Boss Tickets can be obtained by clearing event stages, as well as from login bonuses while the event is active. If you don’t successfully defeat a boss on your first attempt, don’t sweat it – you can retry as many times as necessary, and non-lethal damage dealt to a Boss carries over between attempts.



With Weissflügel, you know you’ll be having a whacky time. To match that upbeat vibe, we’re also increasing the experience gain rates for completing Event Quests. During the event, clearing Event Quests will give 1.5x times the normal experience points, in addition to the normal Mana, items, and Boss Tickets that these quests give out. Clear stages to complete this unique event-exclusive story. 


The Victory Medal Gacha also makes its poetic return for the event! Clearing event stages, event missions, and defeating the previously mentioned bosses will earn you Victory Medals, which can be exchanged for a plethora of goodies. There’s a predetermined series of reward lineups, each featuring a key reward – once you roll the current lineup’s key reward, you’ll have the opportunity to either reset the rewards and move ahead to the next lineup, or hold off on resetting to clear out all the possible rewards. Here are the key rewards you should look out for!


  • Lineup 1: Kuka’s Memory Shard x 20
  • Lineup 2: Monika’s Memory Shard x 25
  • Lineup 3: Kuka’s Memory Shard x 30
  • Lineup 4: Monika’s Memory Shard x 40


Just remember – once you’ve gone through the four initial lineups, you won’t be able to reset the active lineup until you’ve obtained all the possible rewards from the current active lineup. Good luck!


The Shogun Chronicles: The Whitewing Samurai story event will be available from 4/5, 23:00 UTC to 4/16, 22:59 UTC.
