Square Enix and Gumi announced today that Final Fantasy Brave Exvius is coming to the West this summer. The free-to-play role-playing game has already earned six million players in Japan. The mobile industry was worth $34.8 billion in 2015, according to market research firm Newzoo.
In a press release, Gumi described the turn-based title as an “entirely new role-playing adventure for the mobile generation.”
Here’s the full overview, via Square Enix:
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.
- Traditional, turn-based gameplay with streamlined battle mechanics and intuitive touch controls, making it easy to pick up and play for newcomers as well as long-time fans.
- Players will be able to move their characters through fields and dungeons to search for items, hidden paths, and new routes.
- High-quality CG animations of Final Fantasy summons.
- Appearances from new and characters from past titles like the Warrior of Light, Cecil, Vivi, and Terra.
- A complete RPG experience in an easy, portable format for mobile phones.
Final Fantasy Brave Exvius aims to be easy to pick up for newcomers, while fans of the series may recognize some of the characters, as the Warrior of Light, Cecicl, Viv, and Terra all show up.
