Love Nikki Night Castle Event Guide: How Do 2v2 Battles Work?

The latest Love Nikki event takes place in a deserted castle in Miraland. According to the lore, the castle is a magical place that attracts darklings in the night. During the event, players will participate in styling stage battles where they will earn keys for redeeming suit pieces. Instead of working alone though, stages will be completed with a partner in 2v2 battles. When you start a stage you'll be automatically assigned a partner. If you are satisfied with your partner's collection percentage, you can tap on the "Change" button beside your partner's name. You'll be taken to a screen with six potential partners to choose from. Once you've chosen a partner you'll then be assigned an opponent. You'll complete stage battles and the combined score of you and your partner will determine your end rank.

The Night Castle event works a bit like a Hell Event in that once you collect a certain number of keys you'll be awarded specific pieces of an event suit. Unfortunately, you can't choose which suit you want to complete first. You'll we awarded the Dark Poem suit and then the Eternal Instant. Another way this event differs is that instead of completing several stages multiple time per day, you'll be given one stage each day that you can complete up to five times for free. A breakdown of keys received per stage as well as the number of keys needed to gain event suits is provided below.

Stage Keys

It is unclear how key amounts are determined, but the battles appear to be pass or fail. If your score is higher than your opponent you get an S score. If it is lower, you get an F. Here are the keys we have received for each score type.

  • S score = Five keys
  • F Score = Three keys
