Final Fantasy Turn-Based Mobile Game Is Available Now
"So begins a new tale of crystals," apparently.
Back in May, Square Enix announced that Final Fantasy Brave Exvius, a popular mobile game in Japan, would come to the West, but it was unclear when it would launch. Surprisingly, Brave Exvius went live today in the United States on iOS and Android devices. You can see it for yourself here.
You can download the game for free from the App Store or the Google Play store and try out the mobile Final Fantasy game yourself. It's a turn-based action game described as an "entirely new role-playing adventure for the mobile generation."
According to the game's listing, gameplay revolves around tapping to attack and use magical abilities, teaming up with Final Fantasy heroes, and exploring dungeons and other areas. You can also summon espers like Shiva and Ifrit.
The listing gives a synopsis of Brave Exvius's story: "Harnessing the power of the crystals, mankind prospered, nations flourished. But just as day gives way to night, that era of peace proved but a fleeting illusion. Now, as their world stands on the precipice of ruin, two young knights summon visions to their side as they strike out on a journey to chase the shadows. So begins a new tale of crystals, and the heroes who would save them..."
Brave Exvius might satiate Final Fantasy fans until Final Fantasy XV is released on September 30. You can check out some new FFXV screenshots here. Recently, the game's director also spoke about the possibility of a PC release as well as what upgraded consoles mean for it.
