The July update for Final Fantasy 15 is now available, giving players of Square Enix’s role-playing game the ability to wear Magitek Exosuits that grant Noctis, Gladio, Prompto and Ignis temporary invincibility.

Final Fantasy 15’s Magitek Exosuits were originally planned for release earlier this year, but after Square Enix revealed the armor designs, the developer was forced to go back to the drawing board. In short, the original Magitek Exosuit designs were a little too close to the look of the Power Rangers/Super Sentai for Square Enix’s comfort.

Here’s what the exosuits looked like in their original incarnation:

Final Fantasy 15 players can use the Magitek Exosuits once per day for 30 minutes of invincibility.

The July update for Final Fantasy 15 also includes a new quest, the Cross Chain collaboration attack system and the return of the Moogle Chocobo Carnival, which runs July 31 to “late September” for players who own the Final Fantasy 15 Holiday Pack.

Here’s the official word from Square Enix on what’s include in the latest update:

New Magitek Exosuits - granting 30 minutes of invincibility per day for Noctis, Gladio, Prompto and Ignis to help players take on the dangerous creatures of Eos. Once invincibility has worn off, players can continue to wear the exosuits in-game.

A new quest, “O Partner, My Partner” - can be accepted from the Meldacio Hunter HQ after the player has completed Chapter 8.

A new “Cross Chain” collaboration system - allows players to severely damage strong, defensive enemies by increasing the number of linked attacks. The Cross Chain system is available once players acquire the two Royal Arms: the Sword of the Wise and Axe of the Conqueror.

Return of the beloved Moogle Chocobo Carnival - from July 31 to late September, players of all levels can once again journey to Altissia for limited-time-only mini-games, Chocobo water races and special Moogle Chocobo menu items at the Square Enix Café*.
