Lara Croft joins Final Fantasy Brave Exvius for a limited time


Square Enix is introducing one of its other famous properties to its Final Fantasy Brave Exvius mobile game, and you may be surprised to see who it is.

Tomb Raider’s Lara Croft is joining the game from March 9 through March 22 as part of a promotional tie-in to the upcoming Lara Croft: Tomb Raider movie. You’ll be able to add what looks like a pretty classic Lara Croft to your party roster during this window, as long as you’re willing to do a little bit of work to unlock her. 

You’ll need to finish the first event stage or collect Lara by way of daily login bonuses, which are available throughout the same time she’s in the game. You can also get things like 10+1 Summon Tickets or a Lapis for your trouble. Lara Croft is going to be the big ticket for this event, but there will be a special Tomb Raider-themed raid as well so you can, you know, raid some tombs, effectively. 

Aside from Lara in her adorable sprite form, you’ll see characters from the game given special skins like Divine Soleil, Pharaoh Abel, and Explorer Aileen, which you can nab via summon pickups throughout the game.

There’s also a new update coming that will give you five max level characters Ashe from Final Fantasy XII and Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII. It’s a busy time in Final Fantasy Brave Exvius, and there’s plenty of time left before Lara Croft: Tomb Raider opens in theaters on March 15, so make sure you nab her in-game in time for the movie.
