Aya Brea, the unforgettable heroine of the Parasite Eve series, is poised to make her comeback, albeit not in the way fans would expect. While she may not be taking the lead role in a brand-new sequel of her own, Aya Brea will make a surprising appearance in a crossover within the esteemed Final Fantasy franchise.
Parasite Eve was initially released in 1998 for the PlayStation 1, bringing together action and RPG elements in a story centered around Aya, a policewoman from New York. The successful fusion of gameplay and narrative earned the game a cult status, carving out a niche among fans and establishing it as one of the standout turn-based RPGs renowned for its compelling storytelling.
Recently, Square Enix announced that starting from September 21, 2023, Aya Brea will make her debut as a playable character in a special Final Fantasy Brave Exvius event. According to the newly released teaser trailer, Aya will appear in her NYPD uniform, wielding her iconic weapon. When Brave Shift is activated, she will transition into the formal black dress she wore at the beginning of Parasite Eve in Carnegie Hall. The trailer also showcases Aya's confrontation with Mitochondria Eve, creating a nostalgic encounter for fans of the original game.
This is not the first time Square Enix has surprised fans with unexpected collaborations. Just a few days ago, it was revealed that there will be a partnership between Final Fantasy and KFC, showcasing the series' willingness to explore unconventional partnerships.
The return of Aya Brea in this crossover is an exciting development for Parasite Eve enthusiasts, reminding them of the captivating narrative and unique gameplay mechanics of the game. Though she makes her comeback in a different game, the essence of the character seems to remain intact, likely resonating with those who hold the game in high regard. The extensive selection of iconic characters in Brave Exvius, hailing from various unforgettable and timeless parts of the Final Fantasy franchise, undoubtedly contributes to the experience and enhances the appeal for fans of both series by granting them the opportunity to witness their favorite characters side by side in action.
Events like the upcoming one featuring Parasite Eve, as well as past collaborations with titles like NieR Automata, serve as a strategic approach to maintaining player engagement in Final Fantasy Brave Exvius. These partnerships not only refresh the game's content but also expand its appeal to a diverse audience. The inclusion of Parasite Eve in this lineup is expected to keep fans engaged and ensure a continuous series of new events that everyone can enjoy in the future.
Final Fantasy Brave Exvius is now available on Android and iOS devices.
