Pop star Ariana Grande is set to make an appearance in Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius. She announced this appearance on her Instagram account yesterday.
Her character in the game will be based off of her latex bunny eared look as seen on her latest album, Dangerous Woman. It hasn’t been said when she will be showing up in the game or how she will be able to be recruited.
Grande shared a video of her characters sprite in action on her Instagram account. You know your cool when you get your own character in a Final Fantasy game!
Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius is a free-to-play, turn-based rpg for Android and iOS. If your not familiar with the game, it already came out about 6 months ago. So I guess its safe to assume this appearance will come in the way of an update.
The game is already quite popular, and looks like its going to be getting even more attention. In November developer Gumi said it had already been downloaded over 8 million times world wide.
This isn’t the first time the Final Fantasy franchise had assistance from a pop-star. British star Leona Lewis worked on a bunch of stuff for the release of Final Fantasy XIII, including singing the theme song.

About Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius
Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius is a mobile role-playing game developed by A-Lim and published by Square Enix for iOS and Android devices.
A spinoff of the Final Fantasy series, the game marks as the first collaborative effort between Square-Enix and A-Lim, the creator of Brave Frontier, and draws elements from A-Lim’s previous game. It was released in Japan in October 22, 2015. As of 2016, the app has been downloaded over 8 million times.
In a world filled with fantasy, there are two powerful forces in balance: Vision and Lapis. Vision is the manifestation of people’s thoughts and feelings and Lapis is the world where all Magic Crystals exist alongside all the visions of the world. With these powers, people flourished in the land and the whole world prospered. However, sometimes peace can be false and darkness can devour the light. As the world of Lapis is falling to its own destruction, two brave warriors stand up against the darkness with the power of Visions in order to bring peace back to the land.
The story focuses on Rain, a young knight from the Kingdom of Grandshelt. Though a stalwart knight in his own right, he feels overshadowed by his father, Sir Raegan. He and his childhood friend Lasswell are traveling on their airship when they encounter a young woman trapped in a crystal who begs assistance from them. She leads them to the Earth Shrine, where the Earth Crystal is under attack by Veritas of the Dark (Dark Lord), who claims to be one of the Sworn Six of Paradia. While the Dark Lord’s real motive remains unknown, it seems that he wants to end the world by destroying all crystals. Though Rain and Lasswell have never heard of either Veritas or his organization, he proves to be a formidable foe, destroying the Earth Crystal despite their opposition. With the help of the young woman from the crystal, Fina, a healer and archer who has lost her memory, the two set out to track down Veritas and stop his rampage.
