Let's take a look at the practice problem provided on the event's official website to see what kind of riddles players will be expected to solve during the actual event.
A hint to the final answer of this head scratcher will be found in the red squares. But first we need to figure out what goes in each box.
Try turning the hiragana characters in the blue boxes into katakana and then placing them on top of the black boxes. The one on the very top is "ta" (タ).
For this one, combine the katakana equivalent of the letters on the left with the marks already in the boxes on the right.
For く, combine the katakana ク with the black mark that's already in the box on the right to get タ.
For の, combine the katakana ノ with the black line that's already in the box on the right to get イ.
For は、combine the katakana ハ with the black cross that's already in the box on the right to get ホ.
For わ, combine the katakana ワ with the black mark that's already in the box on the right to get ウ.
Now, read the boxes on the right in order, from top to bottom, to get taihou (タイホウ), the answer to Key #1.
The circle up top has "ha" (は), "n" (ん), and "da" (だ), the circle on the left has "da" (だ), "n" (ん), and "shi" (し) and the circle on the right has "shi" (し), "ha" (は), and "n" (ん). Each of these letters only appears in each circle once. The letter that goes in the 1 spot is "ha" (は).
Now that we have "ha" (は), the rest is a simple process of elimination. The bottom of the top circle already has "ha" (は) and "n" (ん) so all that's left is "da" (だ). The right side of the leftmost circle already has "da" (だ) and "n" (ん) so all that's left is "shi" (し).
Reading in order, from 1 to 3, you get hadashi (はだし), the answer to Key #2.
1, 2, 3, and 4 are all words that end with tto (っと). Read the question marks in order. Number three is nut (なっと).
The words here are all words that end with -tto (っと) so this mini riddle is a matter of figuring out what -tto word each picture represents.
Take the parts of each word that's not -tto and you get yononaka (よのなか), the answer to Key #3.
Read the letters as you go through the maze. You'll figure out that the answer consists of five letters.
Basically, just solve this maze.
When you go through you get kono nazo no kotae wa ame-agari (この謎の答は「あめあがり」). That translates to "The answer to this riddle is ame-agari." The hint tells us that the answer consists of five letters and, in Japanese, a-me-a-ga-ri does just that, so ame-agari is the answer to Key #4.
Let's take the answers to Keys #1 - 4 above and figure out the answer:
If you read what's inside the red box starting from the red arrow at the top and going clockwise you'll get hoshi no aida yome (星の間読め), or "read between the stars."
Now let's think back...were there any riddles up until now that had any stars on them? The answer is yes, the maze riddle did.
So let's do what we're told and "read between the stars."
If we read the letters above, starting with the S ("start") to G ("goal") , we get tamago ose (卵押せ), or "press the egg."
"Press the egg?" Wait, was there an egg somewhere?
Oh wait, let's look at the original website that the problem was posted on:
There's the egg right there in Lucky's pouch! Click on the egg on the original website to get a congratulatory message.
Players can expect more riddles like these when the event starts in July 2018.
