While we didn’t care that much about Final Fantasy Brave Exvius (Free) in our review (Shaun gave it 3.5 and talked about how it felt out-of-date compared to other games of the genre), it’s still a Final Fantasy game, and those usually have quite a following. The reason the game made the news again is one you wouldn’t associate with the franchise: Ariana Grande. Apparently, the developers have decided to court the young ones by featuring a character called DW (Dangerous Woman), which is based on Ariana Grande’s persona in the album with the same name. I don’t think Final Fantasy has ever featured a character like this one, so it’s interesting to see how social RPGs are moving further into blending fictional and real worlds.
Grande posted a peek of the new character in action on her Instagram account, and you can see that her singing is definitely front and center. The new character will come to the game as a free update soon, and I’m sure many will be excited about it.
