Blossom Festival is a special quest in Shadow Fight 3, available during the Spring Event. The Sakura festival is being held in Heralds' Dome. They celebrate it by displaying their best inventions. Shibata has created a shadow bot named Steel Sakura, and he asks the players to help by fighting his creation as he wants to show the true extent of his bots' skills. Shibata suggests the player to warm up by fighting against his prototypes before the real fight.
This mode consists of 8 stages. Advancing to the next stage will increase the reward value. If the players lose a stage, they are allowed to try again for up to a total of three tries after which they will be given the determined amount of rewards. The players must start from the first stage if they wish to try again. Players have to win all 8 stages in order to complete the mode and get all the rewards.
There are two modes available: Regular and Grand. Grand yields higher rewards and carries random rules in each stage, making it much harder. It can be played by paying 1 ticket. The ticket can be obtained from the Marathon or bought from the shop for 300 gems. Regular does not have random rules like in Grand, but yields lower rewards instead. It can be played by paying coins (the price depends on the player's progress in the story).
The players will face Shibata's prototypes wielding various weapons. A single prototype appears for only one stage per run, while their leader, Steel Sakura, appears in fixed stages. Each round is timed 99 seconds and the players must defeat the bots before the timer ends, otherwise they will lose.
Players will face some prototypes that wield various Heralds weapons and utilize various Shadow abilities. They fight with the Heralds fighting style. There can be up to three rounds, and the players must score two victories in order to win.
