In the sweltering summer, a strange letter is discovered on the windowsill, with a spiraling fog shrouding a mystery far away. Following the sound of the crashing waves to find the truth, sparks dance on the horizon as the fleeing sun shines brightly across the sky. For her best friend and for the great adventure ahead, our youngest knight is ready to embark on her journey — let’s go!
As a Midsummer Island Adventure theme, the players will be tasked to go to an archipelago and aid Klee on a surprising adventure. Furthermore, they will get a chance to recruit Kazuha, the first playable character from Inazuma.
