Squall
Job Type:
Warrior
Renzokuken
Single-target attack. Hunt down your prey and leave it in pieces.


In addition to the auto-abilities from its respective jobs, Squall's ability Haste Starter, Skillseed Up, and Ability Salvo will be stacked!

The Ultimate adds Warrior's Trance II, Brave, Haste, Snipe, and Prismatic Shift to self, and then lowers Break defense of a single target!

You will be required to set the Ultimate Hero: Squall within your main Deck in order to progress through FFVIII The Sleeping Lion: Episode 1, part 1.
Let's try this now and go to Cards -> Decks -> select your job as Ultimate Hero Squall!
*You can also use the Ultimate Hero "Squall Leonhart" which can be summoned from the lineup.


For details on how to switch a job to an Ultimate Hero, please select tab ETC -> Help -> Advanced Guide -> Ultimate Heroes.


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 Can 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 can be confirmed by holding down the Draw button.
Drawn abilities are more powerful than normal and some may be super rare...?!



Using the Drawn Ability

By selecting Draw, a list of drawn abilities will appear. Select an ability from the list to Cast.
Your action counters will not be consumed by Draw/Cast, but each drawn ability has a usage limit. The number of times a drawn ability can be used appears next to each of the ability names.
Just remember, you can only Cast abilities that were drawn within that same area.
If you encounter multiple battles within the same area, Drawn abilities that were uncast in one battle will carry over into the next, so plan your ability usage accordingly!




For those times you just want to power through battles quickly, we recommend the Draw & Cast option!
This option causes a drawn ability to be cast immediately.


Draw Point
As you advance through the story, you will find areas that are locked to prevent you from proceeding.
If this happens, search for a Draw Point like in 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)
