Another Eden is currently celebrating the one year anniversary of its global launch. Naturally, with these yearly celebrations comes a host of updates and events to commemorate the occasion.

First up, there will be some new content called Manifestation: Weapon Discovery. This will see players tackling a host of tricky battles where they'll be able to earn themselves some weapons. These weapons will only be available for specific characters, providing a boost to their stats and they must be in your party to obtain them.

On top of that, they will also need to be a certain class to be able to use them. The characters and classes required are:

  • Suzette (Dragoon)
  • Mighty (Aqua Ruler)
  • Shion (Kagutsuchi)

There are also a few other requirements to bear in mind. Part 1 of the main story must have been completed and you need to have beaten the Character Quest 3 for the party member you wish to obtain the weapon for.
