TOKYO AND SAN FRANCISCO – July 26, 2017 – Summer has just begun and there’s plenty to do at Brave Frontier’s mega 2017 Brave Summer Festival celebrations. Besides enjoying the sun, sea and sand, players can now boost their Omni units to Omni+ levels with the Omni+ Boost Expansion, starting July 26th.

The expansion, which headlines the hit title’s Summer version 1.8.0 update allows players to unlock up to three tiers of Omni+ levels with special materials. Each tier will unlock a higher limit for the unit’s raised stats and skill points (SP) and over 100 Omni units will be available for the Omni+ Boost.

Players with squads made up of minimum Omni-level units consisting of at least three mono-element Omni+ units of the same Omni+ level can also take advantage of the newly introduced Elemental Paradigm system. The Elemental Paradigm will boost all parameters to active Omni+ units and trigger Spark, Critical and Elemental Squad damages. Up to three levels of Elemental Paradigm effects can be unlocked in battle.

The Vortex Arena is also upgraded, bringing more exciting content to players alongside the Omni+ expansion. The Vortex Arena will host Elemental-focused Seasons each month in the following order: Fire, Water, Earth, Thunder, Light and Dark. Players can form a full mono-elemental squad corresponding to the element in play to battle against other players for high score rankings and Vortex Tokens that can be exchanged for attractive Spheres, Elgifs, Omni+ Boost materials at the Event Bazaar.

In addition, a limited edition elemental unit will also be released each season. The featured Fire and Water Elemental Unit that can be summoned from July 27th - August 4th, and August 23rd - September 1st respectively are Blaze - the fearless fire elemental hybrid with a fiery set of wings and a thirst for knowledge, and Sae - the pint-sized aquatic hybrid bent on world domination.
