LOS ANGELES (Aug. 20, 2020) – Today, SQUARE ENIX® kicks off an exciting new era in the smash hit mobile RPG FINAL FANTASY® BRAVE EXVIUS®, with a thrilling FINAL FANTASY VII Remake collaboration, bringing beloved characters and a variety of rewards to players around the world. Surpassing 45 million downloads worldwide, the popular mobile RPG has also added a new unit type for players to enjoy, starting today: Neo Vision.
Neo Vision units have access to a variety of abilities and advantages, making them powerful new additions to the game, and a vital addition to any player’s team:
- Brave Shift – Units can change their characteristics, appearance and attack styles during battle, essentially giving players two powerful units in one.
- Brave Abilities – These special abilities can be enhanced up to five times to increase damage dealt up to levels never seen before in-game.
- Vision Cards – A new piece of equipment that Neo Vision units can equip to enhance their parameters even further. Players will receive one random Vision Card upon summoning a Neo Vision unit; Vision Cards can also be obtained as Arena ranking event rewards or as EX Awakening rewards. Vision Cards can be enhanced to increase their parameters and unlock passive abilities.
- EX Awakenings – Through this system, Neo Vision units can be further enhanced a total of three times. By awakening Neo Vision units, players can unlock Brave Shift, obtain Vision Cards and receive other exciting rewards.
- Summonable Units – Fans can obtain one of the first Neo Vision Units, fan-favorite Cloud from FINAL FANTASY VII Remake, through a limited-time summon. Players can also obtain Tifa from this summon, who can be awakened to Neo Vision by meeting certain conditions, and Barret (FFVII Remake).
