A character popularity contest had just recently ended on the official Shaman King 20th Anniversary site. No dates were announced for when a future Shaman King crossover event will occur in Pocolon Dungeon. The current event is planned to end on February 25th, but characters & items you unlock during the event will still be usable after the event. There are no currently announced plans for this Shaman King event to be available in other versions of the game . The current English version of the game, is called “Mega Monster Legends” but there may be some region restrictions.
