LOS ANGELES (Sept. 5, 2017) – This past weekend, Producer Yoshinori Kitase revealed Lightning will be the first Ultimate Hero in MOBIUS FINAL FANTASY™ , allowing players to enhance their gameplay.

  • A system that refreshes battle: The new “Lightning Resurrection” region introduces a unique battle system where players unlock paradigms to gain powerful effects in battle.
  • Hope and Snow, the New Legend Job Summons: Players will get the chance to obtain Hope (“Hope’s Guide”) and Snow (“Unbroken Hero”). Players who successfully summon these characters will also receive a Lightning-themed companion spirit.
  • New In-Game Bonuses – Players can obtain 16 gifts including a warrior weapon, “Blazefire Saber,” an exclusive Lightning ability card and a Lightning emoticon stamp by simply logging-in to the game.
