Ok so as you guys may of noticed with some recent gacha outfit releases there has been a new facial mechanic implemented: blinking. Which I think looks pretty cool and makes us look more emotive and less like a bunch of statues. I thought this was only going to be something tied in with special outfits, but I kinda hoped they would release that feature beyond just outfits. Being that they are pretty stubborn with the way they do business over innovation, I had little faith they would go a step further.

But I was surprisingly mistaken (which is a rare occurrence):

Introducing a new beauty shop feature that allows you add blinking and customize how much blinking you want!

Probably will be a gacha item of course. Please feel free to correct me.

    That would be so stupid if people have to pay for their characters to blink.

    But can't you blink natively in one of the mobile variants of the game? And if that is the case, then it feels even more out of place (but expected) to make blinking a pay-for feature in this decrepit PC version, especially when other games feature character blinking natively.

    The customizable aspect of it? Maybe. But blinking in itself?

    And I don't currently see anything about it being monetized either. Might be free like skin colors.

    I will say I like this better than the deluge of two-tone eye tickets we've been seeing.

    I asked for this a while back. I hope they do implement it as a regular part of our animation. Our characters already breathe; we even have fog when in snowy regions. It would make our characters seem more alive rather than like a lifeless doll.

    Why does subject Crimson use that weird word combination instead of "... have ..."? Is it a modern trend to do so? Ugh.

    The Meow likes the idea of making our characters blink. However, not each eye model can afford that. Anyway, it would be good to make natural blinking free and make its detailed customization paid, with Pon or an NX item maybe.

    Well now I am just not going to correct it at all.

    They have the majority things already monetized in game.
