Illusion Connect will be celebrating its first anniversary with a host of in-game events and giveaways, which include a new partner and ZombieLandSaga fan-faves. The tactical shojo RPG from Superprism Games will also add limited skins and other in-game bonuses as a "thank you" to the fans for their loyal support.

With Illusion Connect's first-anniversary festivities come the new partner, Hersey. The new character apparently has a particular hatred for anything rotten, lifeless, or withering, but has a penchant for the colour of crimson red.

Fans of the last collaboration ZombieLandSaga will also be delighted to know that Illusion Connect is bringing back familiar faces to the dream world. On top of that, the limited skins will also be available in the shop during the festivities. Players can make use of the special code #IC1st to claim exclusive rewards.
