The first Final Fantasy title created for mobile games from the ground up is coming to Android and IOS devices this summer.
Final Fantasy Brave Exvius is a free-to-play ode to old-school Final Fantasy games, featuring turn-based tactical combat, traditional animations, and an open world hub for characters to navigate. Although players will be able to download the full game free of charge, there will be micro-transactions. In a recent press-release, Square Enix describes Brave Exvius as follows:
“Adventurers will follow two knights of the kingdom of Grandshelt, and a young girl who suddenly appears before them, as they begin their quest to pursue a highly sought after crystal. Players will make their way through various types of dungeons to search for items, collect gil, uncover hidden paths, and venture new routes.”
When the title launches, players can register online at finalfantasyexvius.com to receive exclusive in-game items. As of now, Brave Exvius will be available in the following languages: English, German, French, Spanish, Chinese (traditional), and Korean.
Square-Enix has ported many of the older Final Fantasy titles to mobile platforms, but Brave Exvius is the first title to be designed for IOS and Android. It has already seen success in Japan, with six million downloads. Expect more news from Square-Enix at next month’s E3.
