In addition to this brand new location the Abyss of the Shrine Maiden will also come with the following content:

  • Heroine Quest – where you will have the chance to add Asuna, Lisbeth, Silica and Premiere as heroines in the first chapter.
  • Enigma Order Quest – where you can acquire the precious Fuse Paragon, Mystic and Ultana GP.
  • Items and skills-  for becoming powerful as never before.
  • Customization –  change the appearance of the main characters.

In addition to details of this first chapter Bandai Namco Entertainment went on to tease details from the second and third chapters; in this case future content will see the scenario reversed and will allow two characters, namely Alice and Eugeo, to be playable alongside new quests.
