Today Square Enix announced a brand new collaboration that will come to its popular tactics JRPG War of The Visions: Final Fantasy Brave Exvius, and it’s with Final Fantasy XIII.
The collaboration, which for now has been announced only for Japan, will include Lightning, Snow, and Hope from Square Enix’s JRPG originally released in 2009.
It will start on the Japanese servers on May 14, and will likely be ported to the western servers sometime down the line, as it usually happens with content that appears first in Japan.
Below you can check out the trailer of the crossover, on top of the relevant segment of the 2.5-year anniversary liverstream.

Incidentally, previous Final Fantasy collaborations involved Final Fantasy Tactics’s Ramza Beoulve, Goffard Gaffgarion, and Cidolfus Orlandeau today, while the second round added more characters, and we also got one with Final Fantasy IV, one with Final Fantasy X, and one with the Final Fantasy VII Remake.
If you’re unfamiliar with War of the Visions: Final Fantasy Brave Exvius, which is currently available for iOS and Android, here’s how Square Enix describes the story.
“Leonis, a small kingdom surrounded by powerful nations, has remained unconquered with the help of a curious ring bestowed upon it king by the “Winged One.”
With visions—the hopes and dreams of legendary warriors given life—on their side, Leonis could hold its own against the might of other kingdoms.
But as the ever-repeating cruelty of fate would have it, even the bonds of love and friendship cannot remain unscathed.
The twin princes of Leonis, Mont and Sterne, are no exception.
Their feud signals the beginning of the end of the longstanding War of the Visions.
In this war-torn land of rivaling nations, who will be left smiling in the dazzling light of the Crystal?”
