LOS ANGELES (Jan. 2, 2018) – Fans of hit mobile RPG MOBIUS FINAL FANTASY® have every reason to celebrate the new year as SQUARE ENIX kicks off 2018 with the Summon Festival in-game event.

The following opportunities are available during the New-Year Summon Festival 2018:
- Supreme Card Summon: From now through January 5 at 11:59 PM PST, players who purchase at least 12,000 magicite will receive a Supreme Ticket allowing them to perform a Supreme Card Summon, which grants one unobtained Supreme Card or one unobtained Ultimate Hero Card.
Other MOBIUS FINAL FANTASY festivities continue in January with the following updates:
- Supreme Card Lineup: Lucky fans have the chance to summon Supreme cards that feature iconic characters from classic FINAL FANTASY titles with some of the game’s strongest abilities, including Aerith with the Great Gospel ability from FINAL FANTASY VII, Duncan with the Phantom Rush ability from FINAL FANTASY VI, and more.
- Ultimate Heroes Lineup: Lightning with the Ranger job type and Cloud join the permanent roster of Ultimate Heroes that may be summoned.
- Palamecian New Dawn 2018: To celebrate the new year, a new region, “Palamecian New Dawn 2018” has been unlocked for all players. Through this new time-limited region, players can get free summons, a chance to obtain magicite and other rewards. All players who visit this region will also receive an adorable new year themed Echo companion spirit.
- New Job: The all-new Ninja job card will be permanently included in the game’s summoning lineup.

Tyro returns a guest card, and each player will receive a “Dr. Mog” card just for logging in.
