The Bookstore in Shinjuku – Hinokuniya will open on 6/18, Saturday. Head inside to purchase the Book: “Batting Science” for (¥2800).

By reading the book, the “Third Eye” will be unlocked for Batting Cage. Using the “Third Eye” while playing the mini-game will slow the time, allowing you to easily hit the ball when performing a swing. The window for using the “Third Eye” comes as soon as the pitching machine emits a sound. Swing the bat as soon as the ball becomes purple to land a Hit.

When aiming for a Homerun, avoid aiming on the ball’s radius. It is recommended to position the aim slightly downwards to cover only the lower half of the ball. Performing the Homerun successfully will give you “The City’s Hard Hitter” Trophy.

  2. Yo, if you ended up here thinking that there would be some info about all the new Royal courses, that’s sadly not a thing.

    I will say that on the latest Fader Course you option “Sturdy Suspenders” for the Home Run reward. It gives you the passive ability Unshaken Will which rage/fear/despair on whomever you equip it on.
