As promised earlier this month, singer Ariana Grande is now a playable character in Final Fantasy mobile game Brave Exvius. Here’s how to add the bunny-eared performer to your pixel party.
First off, you have to have a copy of the free-to-play game installed on your iOS or Android device. Just search the store for “Final Fantasy” and look for the distinctive new game icon.
Once you have the game installed, you’ll have to play to the point where you unlock the Dimensional Vortex, a special area where players and their parties of Final Fantasy characters can participate in special event battles for fabulous prizes. Look for the Dangerous Woman Tour event.
It’s pretty easy to spot.
Playing through the lowest tier battle for the event is all you need to do to add Dangerous Ariana to your group. The stage features a pulsing heart motif, and Grande’s “Touch It” plays during battle in place of the normal music. Maybe turn your sound down first, or wear some headphones.
Once that relatively easy task is complete, you’ll be rewarded with Dangerous Ariana. The singer will appear in your in-game mailbox. All you have to do is go in and claim her.
Dangerous Ariana is a pretty powerful character, especial in latter tiers of the Dangerous Woman event, where her Limit Break, “Touch It”, is very effective against the Resentful Noise Spirit boss battles.
You’ll want to keep playing through the event after scoring Ariana, as the special items needed to awaken her final, six-star form (Ariana Venti?) are only available during the event.
And there you have it. My default Final Fantasy Brave Exvius party now consists of Clyne, Shantotto, Vivi, Fran and Ariana Grande. Great.
