■ Category icons are being added to summoning screens
To help summoners discern the type of summoning event easily at a glance, category icons will be added to each event's summoning screen.
Each icon and its corresponding summoning event category is shown below. Keep an eye on these icons as you decide which summoning events to focus on!

・ Nifl Icicle: up to level 4
■ Additional Heroes via Heroic Grails
The following Heroes will be available to summon using Heroic Grails:
・ Gangrel: Plegia's Mad King
・ Rhys: Gentle Basker
■ Other Changes
・ In Resonant Battles, tapping on the Edit Teams button will automatically apply a filter for bonus titles.
・ When prompted to download data, the download status and estimated time required will be displayed.
・ Links to Learn with Sharena! articles will added to the Battle, Misc., and Heroes' Path screens. These articles contain useful information on Heroes and skills, so if you're curious about something specific or just want to brush up on game mechanics, be sure to check them out!
The following known issues will be addressed:
・ An issue is known to occur when the Continuous Auto setting is enabled and the Feh Pass Auto-Start feature is used to begin a series of battles in Tempest Trials, then suspended during a battle.
Under the above conditions, if a player begins a series of Tempest Trial battles using the Auto-Start feature, suspends it, then resumes playing using the Auto-Battle feature, then the game will not transition to the next map once the current map has been cleared, despite Continuous Auto being enabled.
・ In Resonant Battles, the skills equipped by certain enemies may differ depending on the operating system of the player's device. However, we have determined that these differences are not significant enough to make Resonant Battles on one operating system more or less difficult than on another.
Since this issue will be addressed with a version update partway through a season, the skills of certain enemies appearing during the Resonant Battles season in which the update is applied may differ between the beginning and the end of the season.
・ Visiting the Current Standing screen for Resonant Battles using Ver. 4.7.0 after the Ver. 4.8.0 update has been released may cause the game to crash. Updating the game to Ver. 4.8.0 will resolve this issue.
That's all the news about the next update for now!
