What I'm most expecting is the dungeon mode. To differentiate it from normal fields, surely specific mechanics will apply to dungeons, and although these mechanics could take form in absurd limitations or handicaps, it should provide more variety.

Also, 'em proper Gargoyles and Hook Bats! Does it mean that there will be a dungeon in Beast's Castle? Does it mean that Beast's Castle is coming soon? Though, I really wouldn't hold my breath as there have been cases in which stuff in Developers' Report wouldn't be realised until months later.

Edit: A second, closer look at the dungeon mode snapshots shows Daybreak Town instead. Oh well, still excited.

What is interesting to me about the dungeons is that the description said "Reach the top within the shortest distance". You would expect stuff like "Clear the dungeon without taking any damage", or "Clear the dungeon within X minutes".

i wonder how many cards you can use for the ultimate card thing... will there be a number like the limit cut with how many more HP SR+ you can use? It would be pretty OP if there wasn't a limit (*sees the future with paying players defeat a lv666 in one shot*)

Actually, a silhouette of Olympia was found in the game data. The current +40 form still doesn't match the silhouette, so chances are there will be +50 Keyblades.

Since when has it been in the files? And... even larger than +40?
It's been there since long, even before +40 Keyblades were a thing. Sorry I can't remember where it was posted, nor do I feel like digging through old posts for that... XD

The dungeons sound interesting, although they will probably the grinding spots for the ultimate card materials. I'm still not sure what to think of these cards, with all the different boosts going on does it even matter if you can gain another fraction by sacrificing SR+ cards? I mean this system is practially aimed at the 500+ players (those that have enough spare high purified SR+ cards), but these are also the people that buy the most cards, who keep this game going so to speak. SE wants to keep selling cards, so the cards from the shop will always be better in the long run.

I'm surprised the first dungeon they want to make is in Daybreak Town. Unless they're trying to re-use the Anniversary area, but those look like new rooms to me. You'd think it would be in a place that would rationally have a dungeon, like Olympus Coliseum, or in Dwarf Woodlands which is otherwise wrapped up. Not in the place that I imagine is a stones' throw from my character's house. (Now, a final dungeon I could see. In that big background tower, of course.) My bet: it's going to be that Lighthouse you could barely visit during the Anniversary event.

One way or another, I'm pretty excited about this mash.
