Gumi and Square Enix announced that it is working on plans to synchronize the game contents of the global and Japanese versions of War of the Visions: Final Fantasy Brave Exvius, with a planned deadline of the end of September.
The global and Japanese versions of the game will still be split into two separate apps, but soon global players will no longer need to wait for four months of content to catch up with the Japanese server’s events. The global version will still receive content a little later than the Japanese version, but the delay will come at an “approximately one-month delay or less”.
This does mean though that players on the global version of the game will be playing catch-up, as the release schedule of upcoming events and content will be much tighter to allow the game to catch up while still receiving all of the upcoming content. In turn, players will have less time to prepare for the content in terms of getting resources to acquire and train new units, but the game is planning a “Road to the Worldwide Version” event that will facilitate granting more summoning tickets, and rewards for character progression.
