This week’s Tokyo Xanadu update introduces new characters Tomoaki Mikuriya and Morimaru, heir to the Mikuriya Group and the mascot of Morimiya City, respectively, as well as the Kizuna Episodes event system.
Get the information below.
Tomoaki Mikuriya (voiced by Hisayoshi Suganuma)
29 years old. The narcissistic and overly self-conscious heir to the Mikuriya Group and a candidate for leader of the Zodiac organization transferred to Morimiya City.
Although the Mikuriya Group does not link itself to the 12 companies connected to Zodiac, as a group under its umbrella and because Mikuriya carries weight in the business community, the Tomoaki name has risen as a leadership candidate.
In the Mikuriya household, there is talk of an arranged marriage with Mitsuki, the successor candidate to the Hokuto Group.
Morimiya City’s popular mascot character.
Morimaru acts as a PR ambassador for Morimiya City, as well as advsior to the Mitama Udo Farmers Association. He also seems to have some wildly enthusiastic fans.
He seems to be a fairy that has watched over Morimiya City since ancient times, but with its topknot hair style, kimono, and “gozaru” speech nuance, it looks more like a samurai.
As a matter of fact, he’s a fan of the idol group SPiKA, and is looking forward to their next concert to be held in Morimiya City.
■ Kizuna Episodes
During your free exploration of the real world, you’ll be able to see special events called “Kizuna Episodes” for characters you encounter by using a special item called a “Fragment of Fate.”
In addition to getting a deeper look into the background of each character, Kizuna Episodes will also raise your character’s Soul Level.
You’ll obtain Fragments of Fate as you advance through the main story, as you explore, and so on. There are various ways to obtain them.
Some example scenarios follow:
Asuka is slightly shocked by Kou’s thoughtless actions. Through information obtained from her classmate Shiori, Asuka seems to have found something out about Kou…
Shio takes it upon himself to solve a problem that occurred among delinquents. The contents of which he confides with Kou…
Towa, Kou’s homeroom teacher and cousin, works as a shrine maiden at the Kokonoe Shrine on weekends. But how will Towa react when Kou comes to visit and sees her in that setting…?
Tokyo Xanadu is due out for PS Vita in Japan on September 30.
