March 25, 2014 - Leading online game developer and publisher Joymax is combining together fan favorite events for a huge April celebration in their worldwide sensation MMO, Digimon Masters, this month!  Whether you’re looking to gain a new digital friend, grab a new mercenary follower, or grab a sweet new ride, you can do it all!  Tamers can peruse the full details of this huge event at and download the game today.

It’s what’s on the inside that counts:  Shakomon may look peculiar with its hard exterior shell, but crack it open and you’ll find a cute Digimon secretly hiding inside!  They use this cute face to lure other Digimon into their attack range, and then let loose with a Water Screw and Black Pearl special attacks.  This Digimon will only be available for sale until April 11 th, so Tamers who want to grab this unique crustacean shouldn’t dally!

If seafood isn’t your flavor, then perhaps the monthly Log In Event will be more palatable?  From March 25 th through April 22 nd, players who return to the Digital World daily will be amply rewarded.  Staying logged in for 30 minutes nets players a basket of Mysterious Growth Fruit, at one hour 3 Capsule Coins will appear, after two hours a 1000% Amplification Booster is awarded, and the final reward at three hours is an Easter Bunny coin!  Players can earn one of each reward per day.

Bunny Coins can be used in exchange for a variety of items.  As players will have the opportunity to win only 30 of these precious coins, they will need to decide carefully what to purchase:

3 Coins: Backup Discs

5 Coins: 7 Day Jogress Chip

10 Coins: 30 Day DigiAura

15 Coins: Reinforced Mercenary Digiegg

20 Coins: Digimon Archive
