In the latest livestream for the Japanese version of Mobius Final Fantasy, producer Yoshinori Kitase and project leader Takashi Shiraga have given a first look at the upcoming Final Fantasy VIII event.

The event will be released across December till February 2019 in the Japanese version.

The first region will be Balamb Garden, and it boy does it look gorgeous in HD.

As part of this event, the battle system will be enhanced and take on elements of Final Fantasy VIII's Draw System.

Also coming alongside this is a brand new Ultimate Hero in Squall Leonhart. This was expected, but there's something a little different. There's two versions.

There's one based on Final Fantasy VIII that will be obtained via the usual method of summoning.

But there's also a second version based on Dissidia Final Fantasy and this will be given to everyone for free. Yes, everyone gets this one as a gift. There's no catch, you will just need to log in during the event.

There will also be a new Legend Job based on Seifer. And there's also a Rinoa based Echo which will also be a gift to all players.

And if that's not enough, you will also be able to fight Squall in Ring of Braves with up to 3 other players.

This is already a lot but there's more to come in the coming months. Keep in mind this is for the Japanese version, the global version which is about to kick off Act 2 in the coming days will get this in 2019.

Here's your chance to play as Squall in 4K, at up to 120fps with a turn-based battle system.
