Chrono Trigger Director Working on New Final Fantasy… For Mobile

Chrono Trigger Director Working on New Final Fantasy… For Mobile

Square Enix' premium mobile efforts are pulling in some veterans.

Square Enix has launched a teaser site in Japan for a brand-new Final Fantasy game. That title is coming from Takashi Tokita, known as the lead designer of Final Fantasy IV and the director of Chrono Trigger and Parasite Eve. Unfortunately for some, this new Final Fantasy is in development for iPhone and Android platforms.

The game is supposed to be announced in five days according to the teaser site. Artwork from Yoshitaka Amano fronts the site, alongside very Final Fantasy-esque teaser music.

"Final Fantasy is about characters filled with human appeal. About dramatic battles of anger and sadness. And more than anything, we should not forget that it is about fantasy," said Tokita, via a translation by Gematsu.

Final Fantasy: Mobius and Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius have been pretty good titles for mobile platforms, far better than Square Enix' earlier efforts, like Final Fantasy: All the Bravest. Hopefully, this game will stand up to the same pedigree.
