Battle System
A new battle system called Draw will be introduced for the FFVIII collaboration event.

Using Draw during battle will stock up enemy abilities, which can be used by selecting Cast.

Within the FFVIII collaboration region, you can perform Draw from almost all enemies. Some foes have very powerful abilities so be sure to Draw them and use them to your advantage!

Viewing Enemy Abilities that could be Drawn
Let's check to see what kind of abilities the enemy has.
During battle, select TARGET VIEW which will show what ability can be drawn underneath their HP gauge.
The abilities that can be drawn are all effective so if there are any that you favor, keep using the Draw feature!



Confirm the Drawn Ability
The effect of the drawn ability could be confirmed by holding down the Draw button.
The Drawn abilities are powerful than normal and some may be super rare...?!


Use the Ability after "Draw"
By selecting Draw, a list of drawn abilities will appear. This can then be used with Cast.
Your action counters will not be consumed by Draw/Cast, but each drawn ability has a limit of usage. The limit in using the abilities drawn can is shown next to each of the ability names.
You can only Cast abilities that was drawn within that same area.
Draw/Cast can still be used when there are multiple sets of battle per area, so plan out the timing on when to Cast the abilities!




In order to proceed with the battles smoothly, we recommend the Draw & Cast option!
This will immediately use the ability that has been drawn.


Draw Point
As you advance through the story, there are areas that are locked to prevent you from proceeding.
If this happens, search for a Draw Point like the image shown below.
You will be able to unlock these areas by drawing from enemies with the same element as the Draw Point.



SeeD Rank
For the FFVIII collaboration event, rewards will vary depending on your SeeD rank!
The SeeD Rank will increase after completing various objectives.



Rinoa Echo
In celebration of the FFVIII collaboration, a very charming Rinoa Echo will be sent as a gift!
Be sure to take her along on your journey♪

Distribution Date: 8/1 8:00 pm - 11/1 7:59 pm PDT (UTC-7)
