Quick Like an Amiya (Bunny)

This will be a quick recap of the important announcements from the JP Livestream.  If you have already seen our event pages for the CN 1s anniversary content, there won't be any surprises here.  I may do a more detailed coverage of the livestream content if ya'll are interested, let me know in the comments.

If you are looking for the game statistics and merchandise that were shown in the EN Anniversary Livestream, they can be found here:

Weelysium Banner (WWE)

Screen Shot 2020-12-24 at 10.54.48 AM

Duration: December 30th - January 13th

The highly anticipated banner with Limited Operator W, and meta stand-outs Weedy and Elysium will be arriving on December 30th!  This is NOT a banner you want to miss, as it is probably the best banner that has been released to date, including in CN (both for meta, and waifu/husbando)

Thermal-EX, a third robot, will also be given to players, and added to the recruit pool

Banner details:

Featured Operators:

Rarity Operator
6★ Rate Up W - AoE Sniper
Weedy - Pusher Specialist
5★ Rate Up Elysium - Utility Vanguard
  • 6★ Rate-Ups have a 70% chance of appearing when pulling a 6★
  • 5★ Rate-Ups have a 50% chance of appearing when pulling a 5★
Test out your luck for this banner on our:[Cremation Last Wish] Summon Simulator!

There will also be an additional pity system added, a "Sparking" system, that will give you currency for each pull that can be spent on recruiting the Banner Operators, or on other materials.  Details of this system can be found in the following article:

Along with this, there will be a free 10 pull that is only usable on the Limited Banner. It will expire if not used.
