Now onto more details regarding the update itself!

Whether you've played the game before or not, you will be able to enjoy a tonne of quality of life changes! Some will be implemented straight away, while the Mew Game mode and its meowdifiers will require you to have finished the game once already!

Mew Game Modes

 

No less than 8 meowdifiers are now available in the Mew Game mode, allowing you to challenge yourself with several more playthroughs! Check out some examples below!

Inventory

 

The inventory was fully reworked - at the request of the fans- and the sorting is vastly improved, including color-coding by rarity of the items.

Naked Paws

 

You won't be able to equip any armor or weapon during this playthrough!

Nine Lives

 

You can only die nine times in this playthrough, just like a cat!

Furever Alone

 

If you die in this mode, it's Game Over, no jumping over to the AI!

 

Arcane Temples

 

The temples are now available across the land to make it easier to upgrade your spells!

Quality of Life

 

Many minor tweaks, as well as quests and dungeons displaying the level before you enter, and the Kingsmaker showing the direction of your travel.

Elemental Damage

 

Weapons that do elemental damage are now better displayed and the numbers now change color depending on the element!

 

Royal Arts

 

New ways to attack your foes are also being added - unique to each weapon equipped! Simply attack during a roll to purrform this new spinning slash!

Sprinting

 

You will now have the ability to sprint! Soon you will be able to pounce all over the world with speed and grace!

Defense 

 

The defense stat has been improved, and is now displayed as a far in front of the health bar, and will take damage instead! It also recharges over time once you stop taking damage.

New Enemies

 

The oceans will now be teeming with new enemies for you to challenge yourself - and be a new source of gold or experience!

 

Don't forget that the Pawsome Pack came out last week on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, in Europe and North America! It combines Cat Quest and Cat Quest II on one cartridge or disc, with a reversible cover!
