Arcade Mode Details

Each stage you challenge comes with its own pre-determined set of consumables, gears like armors, etc. These pre-determined values are set to the same level when you encounter them in the game.

The only thing you can change is which Eikon you can use to fight, which can certainly impact the outcome of a scenario by a significant margin.

The score you get is calculated using two categories whose results can be seen in the table below. These two categories are the complexity of the technique and the execution of the technique. Your Arcade Mode Rewards are determined based on this grading system.

My Thoughts On Arcade Mode

Unfortunately, I can’t say much about the rewards Arcade Mode that Final Fantasy 16 has to offer as you will not receive what you desire the most or invest effort into. I think this is the most overlooked aspect of this mode, as players’ community demands guaranteed rewards from an Arcade Mode. I hope developers will add more rewards to meet these players’ requirements. 

Hopefully, they add some sort of cosmetic reward(s) for arcade mode since it could be a nice incentive to practice and get good at the combos and combat of the game.
