11/11/2016 - New Final Fantasy Exvius and Brave Frontier Crossover

Mobile Game Celebrates 8 Million Downloads With Limited Time Login Bonus Campaign

LOS ANGELES (November 11, 2016) - Today, Square Enix® released an update for the free-to-play mobile game
FINAL FANTASY BRAVE EXVIUS®, featuring an epic, limited-time crossover event featuring characters from BRAVE FRONTIER and a new Player vs. Player (PvP) gameplay mode. Additionally, a special login bonus campaign will be available to all players in celebration of the game’s 8-million downloads milestone reached earlier this month.
From November 11 through November 24, the worlds of BRAVE FRONTIER and FINAL FANTASY BRAVE EXVIUS collide during a special collaboration event. BRAVE EXVIUS players can venture into the Grand Gaia Chronicles through the Vortex, unlocking various reward tiers in BRAVE FRONTIER, while clearing the Overwhelming Darkness stage in BRAVE FRONTIER will unlock reward tiers for BRAVE EXVIUS players. If all reward tiers are unlocked for both games, all players will receive a bonus Unison Reward.
Characters from BRAVE FRONTIER will also make an appearance in FINAL FANTASY BRAVE EXVIUS, including Tilith, Karl, Seria, and the worldwide version exclusive Elza. Each hero has been uniquely transformed into a pixel art version of their character, and will be available through Feature Summon for the duration of the event.
PvP Mode also makes its debut with this recent update—players face off against teams formed by other players in the Arena, battling head to head for the chance at in-game rewards. Players will accumulate points by winning Arena matches, and then ranked among other players based on total points. At the end of each weekly and monthly ranking period, players will receive rewards based on their overall rank, including Arena Summons Tickets and character stat-boosting items.
Having surpassed 8 million global downloads since the game’s release, FINAL FANTASY BRAVE EXVIUS is commemorating this special milestone with a bonus login campaign. Players who login between November 1 and November 30 can obtain additional daily login rewards.
FINAL FANTASY BRAVE EXVIUS is available now as a free-to-play app (with in-app purchases) through the
App Store for Apple devices and on Google Play for Android devices.

The action begins today as the alien-armored hero called X-O Manowar becomes the first comic book powerhouse to battle through the mystic realm of Bellia! Gather your allies and fight against the thousands of monsters with X-O Manowar’s signature “Sonic Boom” ability! With Valiant’s leading legend on your side, you’ll stand a better chance than ever at leveling your Hunter and fighting against the Invaders from the Underworld to achieve peace in Bellia!
Then, in the wake of X-O Manowar’s sword-wielding debut, look for new Valiant characters to be added to the best-selling GUARDIAN HUNTER: SUPER BRAWL RPG throughout November! Next week, the supernatural guardian known as Shadowman strikes with his patented “Deadside Unleashed” ability on Thursday, November 17th! Then, Earth’s immortal Fist and Steel crashes into Bellia when the Eternal Warrior joins the fight on Thursday, November 25th!
“NHN have done a phenomenal job bringing three of Valiant’s most enduring and beloved characters into three dimensions with beautiful graphics and action-packed gameplay,” said Russell A. Brown, Valiant’s President of Consumer Products, Promotions & Ad Sales. “While X-O Manowar and Shadowman have a long history in gaming, GUARDIAN HUNTER: SUPER BRAWL RPG is a fantastic collaboration that is capturing Valiant’s characters in a way that they’ve never been seen before and delivering them to a passionate new audience.”
Fight new enemies, summon charming new Guardians, and turn your hero into a super-powerful knight, mage, or archer as you explore the realm of Bellia in the awesome and improved GUARDIAN HUNTER: SUPER BRAWL RPG for iOS and Android – now featuring Valiant’s legendary comic book heroes: X-O Manowar, Shadowman, and the Eternal Warrior! 
Born into battle, Aric of Dacia – heir to the throne of the Visigoth Empire – never knew peace. Raised under the oppressive thumb of the Roman Empire in fifth-century Europe, Aric’s entire existence was spent fighting a never-ending insurgency against history’s most brutal empire…until a far more terrifying enemy revealed itself and changed his destiny forever. Abducted by a brutal race of extraterrestrials known as the Vine, Aric was forced into slavery on an alien world. Torn from his family, his people and his nation, he spent years plotting his escape…until the day came that he was able to seize a weapon of incalculable destruction – a sentient suit of alien armor – and become X-O Manowar!
There are a million dreams in the Big Easy. But now its worst nightmare is about to come true. As the forces of darkness prepare to claim New Orleans as their own, Jack Boniface must embrace the legacy he was born to uphold. As Shadowman, Jack is about to become the only thing that stands between his city and an army of unspeakable monstrosities from beyond the night. But is the mantle of Shadowman a blessing or a curse? And what is the true cost of his otherworldly power?
Across ten millennia and a thousand battlefields, Gilad Anni-Padda has shaped history at the end of his sword. He’s razed empires, toppled civilizations, and broken armies as an immortal soldier in service to the Earth. A master of countless weapons and long forgotten martial arts, no one in the Valiant Universe is more dangerous or more experienced in the art of war than the unrelenting Eternal Warrior.
