As the Japanese server (JP) precedes the North American (NA) by nearly 2 years, there are numerous game features and quality-of-life differences between the two. This list is geared towards highlighting and clariying some of the differences.
- Players will immediately notice that the home screen features a different coloring and theme song (Utsuroi), to reflect the further progress of the game's story (don't worry, Kakawari fans - that can still be heard during file downloads).
- The extra button under Mirrors is only used during Kimochi Raid Battle Events.
- The current Event banners are listed on the Events page (the current banners shown are the MagiReco Miracle Quiz, the 3rd Anniversary Campaign, and Lets go to Zen Shin Sai! ~Our Small Break Time~.
- The extra button on the middle of this menu is used for Spirit Enhancement; it is only available for characters where this feature has been unlocked.
