Ni no Kuni Cross Worlds: Tarakona

In Ni no Kuni: Cross Worlds, players can summon Tarakona, a newly-released 4-star Familiar that has extraordinary skills.

Ni no Kuni: Cross Worlds is an acclaimed mobile game that combines battle and role-playing elements with exploration aspects. The game is part of the classic Ni no Kuni game franchise, which means that you are likely to encounter similar gameplay and content.

Unlike its predecessor, Cross Worlds invites you to enjoy content with likeminded players, as it features a multiplayer mode.

Even though there is an array of activities and occasional events you can participate in; it is recommended that you focus on progressing in the main campaign. As you advance in the game, you will get the opportunity to acquire Familiars, one of which is Tarakona.


A Familiar’s main purpose in the game is to aid you in your adventures and travels. Familiars are Warriors of Heart, and they are born from everything in the fictional world that has a heart. In the early stages of the game, players can take on a quest in which they have to deliver a mysterious egg.

Once the egg has hatched, you will get your first Familiar, whose heart should be linked to your character’s heart. Luckily this is a simple task, as you only have to allocate the Familiar to one of your character’s available slots.

Players can acquire more Familiars as they advance in the game, but they should bear in mind that some Familiars are more beneficial than others.
