The producers, Kei Hirono and Hiroki Fujimoto, will devote half of this panel to discussing a recent player survey and the direction of FFBE moving forward. The second half of the panel will be… Steel Castle Melfikya, but in real life! Fan Festa attendees will work together to design a special accessory, which all players will receive at a later date!

This adorable accessory will come with the following basic stats and initial abilities:


Abilities: Nullify Poison, DEF/SPR+5%, Magic Set 1 (Fira, Blizzara, Thundara)

Attendees will get the chance to swap out the above abilities and customize this accessory together! Ultimately, attendees will select two normal abilities (like Fire & Ice Resistance +10% or Increase LB Gauge Fill Rate +10%) and one special ability (like Nullify Confusion/Petrification) to replace the accessory’s base abilities.

What sort of awesome combination of abilities will everyone select…?!
