Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius is now available worldwide on Android and iOS. The free-to-play game is Square Enix' attempt to create a full-fledged mobile RPG and already has 6.5 million players in Japan. FF: Brave Exvius was developed in collaboration between Square Enix and Brave Frontier developer Gumi Inc.
Players follow the path of two knights and a young woman as they travel their land, fighting monsters and exploring dungeons. The game heavily features additional party members in the form on classic Final Fantasy characters like Cecil, Terra, and Vivi. Like weapons in Final Fantasy: Record Keeper, those characters are unlocked via a random roll, gashapon-style system. There's also full summons in the game, via CG-animation.
The worldwide release includes:
- New items and daily quests
- High-definition graphic support for tablet devices
- Achievements and Leaderboards
- Game balance refinements based on the Japanese version
- Facebook Login Integration
- 'Early Bird Bundle' at launch for $3.99, offering enhanced player growth. (Other bundles will be available regularly)
Square Enix has surprised fans with a run of solid free-to-play mobile titles based on the Final Fantasy franchise. Final Fantasy: Record Keeper, Mobius Final Fantasy, and Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius are all very different titles that have been well-received by fans. Record Keeper has been out in the US for some time now, Brave Exvius launches today, and Square Enix has confirmed that Mobius will be heading West in the "not-so distant future."
