In Big Merry Cruise, a new cruise ship has arrived in the Niaowu Harbor. There’s no better way to relax than with some gambling and adventure on a luxurious cruise ship. Various types of entertainment can be enjoyed, as well as participating in challenge missions which can only be played while on board. Ryo also has the chance to gain new outfits that can be obtained by clearing mini-quests encountered in this final downloadable content offering.*
