Vampire Survivors announces new update with a Final Fantasy trailer

Exactly as I remember it.

Poncle has abruptly dropped a new update for Vampire Survivors with a trailer that includes some well-timed Final Fantasy references. Just a few. The Space54 update is available today.

Is the update at all related to Final Fantasy? Hmmm, no. It doesn’t look like it. However, for some reason, the team decided to release a trailer alongside it that is a shot-for-shot remake of the 1997 Final Fantasy VII trailer. Well, as shot-for-shot as they can manage with Vampire Survivors.

What? Well, according to the press release I received, an insides says, “Because we had the original trailer on a PlayStation demo disk and watched it on loop so now it’s scored into our brains. Plus the team is extremely hyped for Rebirth. What better way to celebrate than with a trailer of our own?”

As for the actual update, I don’t think you’re going to be seeing any buster swords. It looks to be more sci-fi-themed. This is what Poncle has highlighted for the Space54 update:

7 New Achievements

2 New Characters:

  • Bat Robbert – When falling below 20% health, he gains +16 MaxHP (max +400) and recovers 30% health. This ability recharges every time the character is fully healed.
  • Space Dude – Every few seconds fires all weapons regardless of their Cooldown. The cooldown of this ability is affected by the Cooldown stat.

New Weapons:

  • Pako Battiliar – May retaliate when losing health.
  • Phas3r – Pew Pew! Generates thin damaging zones. High Amount scaling.

New Stage

  • Space54 – A cosmic trek through horrors and delights.

New Relic

  • Allows to enable random level up choices.

Vampire Survivors is available on basically everything at this point. The Space54 update is free and will be arriving today.
