But when a naginata-wielding young woman who was following that group shows up, the Halidom is thrown into an uproar! Will they all be able to safely ring in the new year?
If you increase your Friendship with Botan, a character who appears in the event, you'll be able to officially add her to your group of adventurers!

Raid battles are co-op battles where up to four players can use four adventurers each, bringing up to 16 characters to challenge a raid boss.

・ For Hosts:
Creating a room requires otherworld fragments and stamina. You can obtain otherworld fragments from boss battles.
・ For Guests:
Otherworld fragments are not required to participate in Co-op Play. Getherwings will be used. To challenge raid battles, you must be capable of challenging the same difficulty as the Host.
■ Extra raid battles:
After clearing a raid battle on expert difficulty, there's a chance that an Extra Raid Battle will become available. The extra raid battle will disappear once cleared. By fulfilling certain conditions, this quest will continue to appear.
・ For Hosts:
Creating a room does not require stamina, getherwings, or otherworld fragments.

No stamina, getherwings, or otherworld fragments will be expended. Players can only take part while the extra battle appears for them. The extra battle will disappear once players have cleared it as a guest.
