Previously, Square Enix presented a Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary event on Tuesday, January 31st, 2017. During the presentation, it was announced that one of Final Fantasy XV‘s many updates would suppose to include a free download of a Magitek Exosuit costume for each of the game’s four main characters. This suit gives the player invincibility for 30 minutes and improves fishing, but can only be used once every 24 hours. The update was originally scheduled to launch on February 21st, 2017.
Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata and Square Enix Marketing Manager Akio Ofuji stated the reason for the delay was because they had received word from the publisher of Power Rangers that these suit designs were too similar to theirs. Both Tabata and Ofuji specified Power Rangers rather than Super Sentai.
