    A mysterious announcement awaited players today after an update...​

    [​IMG]
    Coming 1/19!!!
    The details of the Ariana unit are still a mystery but we know a few more details. The event will feature a remixed version of her song "Touch It" produced by Nick Wood. To hear a sample and listen to the producer notes and thoughts on the collaboration, see the Square Enix video below...​


    Anticipation for the event comes in the wake of Ariana's Grande's instagram post of a video detailing her unit's animations.

    For more news on the event, check out Siliconera & Polygon.

    Love it or hate it? Sound off here.​

    It is a reference to her album Dangerous Woman.
    The sprite is wearing the outfit she wears on the album cover.

    This is not cool. Why is a celebrity incorporated into a fun fantasy game? It's a huge slap in the face to true fans who actually enjoy playing FFBE. If you guys don't reply to support or square enix abou this, the game will lose a lot of fans, & players (a.k.a spenders). The game will become full of sponsorship endorsements, ads, & celebrities who just don't belong in a fantasy realm. Next they'll be incorporating Justin Bieber or Miley Cyrus as units. We don't want that do we?! You will incorporate preteen girls that'll download the game & other youngsters. But all your true fans & spenders are gonna dip. This addition of her is not right. Is Definately NOT final fantasy. Please send in your messages to help prevent this agony of adding celebs & ruining a very fun game.

    Honestly this attitude is really sad and just not needed.

    You have to live your life in a really closed minded bubble of a mindset to think like this.

    There are Final Fantasy fans who like Ariana and pop music. These things are not exclusive.
    There are Ariana fans who will try this game and learn about Final Fantasy from this. Regardless of what you say, this is not a bad thing and it doesn't harm anything at all.
    Why does it bother you so much that girls will play this game?!

    This is not even the first pop music endorsement Final Fantasy has done. You'd think a "FF fan since NES" would know that already...
    This game series is full to the brim with pop culture influence and reference.

    If you don't like the FREE CONTENT they are adding into the game don't play it lmao. But don't act high and mighty over people who will enjoy it. You aren't better than them.
    You're making up unrealistic "what-if" scenarios to justify your hate towards a group of people who don't act like you and its childish. You claim you're old enough to have played FF on NES, its time to grow up.

    I'm not hating. Just speaking up for the fans who want to keep final fantasy a fantasy type game instead of advertisements, & celebrity endorsements. I'm NOT sexist by far. And I think girls that play are cool. So that's not the issue.

    You literally stated its impossible for someone to enjoy this game and like Ariana. Which is a factual fallacy because I am a person that likes both.

    When you say that "if you dont message support" to try to get this removed you aren't some sort of ~real fan~ or someone who ~actually enjoys the game~ is just ridiculous. You ARE putting down people who will enjoy this content and ridiculing them for it. Without even realizing that you're doing it, you've put so much of your projected hate of what you think Ariana represents and equated that to literally the idea that she will cause this game to close because all of the money spending players will leave if shes actually in the game? It just makes no sense... You've made up your own reality where an Ariana Grande fan /cant POSSIBLY EVER/ spend money on this game. Why? I am literally one of them and I have spent money on this game.

    I understand you want "Final Fantasy" to remain.... "Final Fantasy"..... but that means completely different things to different people. This game isn't even canon or a main-series title. And it already has had off-series collabs before. I absolutely know you would not be saying this if it was a Japanese pop artist and it was a JP exclusive event. You wouldn't think anything wrong of it at all. But you don't like mainstream pop music so you're using that to look down on other people and its just....... not necessary? Rather if you realize you are doing it or not.

    (This is my last post about this because I've said what I needed to say and theres already mention that this sort of thing belongs in rant section)

    It's
    I told u I'm not hating. And if it were a JP popstar of any sex, I would disagree also. Why not try talking to people first before attacking them about being sexist. If this was about Justin Bieber, or any other guy celeb, I'd be saying the same thing. And I also enjoy certain types of "new age pop music". So get to know someone before u attack with assumptions about them. If u want to see the game turn out to be a celebrity endorsement filled with advertising, that's fine. That's your opinion. My opinion is to not have celebrities & keep it in the fantasy realm. Besides, celebs have enough don't they. If u incorporate them in a game, it's like giving a criminal the press & advertising they want. Also, many of the people these celebs will bring in, will be short time players that'll play for like 2 months tops. It will hurt the game. We'll have People like Donald trump or Hillary Clinton as boss fights. It'll be awful for people who enjoy a quality fantasy game.

    This so so depressing. Yes people who love FF can love a pop star. Does that mean she should be in our game? No. Its a terrible argument to say that she should be just because some people who are fans of both are into it. This destroys the immersion of the Final Fantasy world. Why is she even in this game? What constitutes her to be in ffbe? Maybe if she did the music for some of the games or was in anyway related to the game. This is where this post belongs, i am discussing her being in the game. Its not a rant, and thats why we have these threads. Some people are excited for it and some arent. CONSISTENCY is important. Ariana doesnt belong because she is not or has ever been consistent with the story. ff 15 is relevant because its a FINAL FANTASY GAME. Brave frontier is consistent because they are both pixel turn based games... This makes me not want to play, because im playing a celebrity .

    If ff15 Dropped with one of the main characters as selena gomez do you know out of place it would be? How many people would be confused? The immersion would be gone. The story would be weird. Final fantasy doesnt take place in our world it takes place in a made up one. They dont ride horses they ride chocobos. Theres BARDS not pop stars. Even as a lover of ariana grande its kind of ridiculous to even support this. What if the next pokemon game dropped with kim kardashian as the main protaginist? Everytime she catches a pokemon she says "and dont forget to hear my new hit single on mtv!" I know she doesnt make music but what the hells the different. pokemon fans could like kim kardashian but that doesnt mean she should be in a pokemon game. This cannot be good for business, unless all they want is to cash grab at 12 year old girls who dont even know what final fantasy is.
