Social game for ios/android from Square Enix in collaboration with Gree.
Will follow the old FF style of exploring large world maps, fighting enemies in classic turn based command style and completing dungeons. Over 100 monsters that can be summoned to fight and the usual class variations you can pick for your characters.
Planned to be released this summer.
Who does buy these games out of interest? Is it mostly in Japan or is there a big market for them in the West too?
It uses the same all their other games have used, except for the blue buttons on the bottom which use a more round one.
Visually this looks way less like garbage than past iOS/Android releases. The typography doesn't look terrible.
They're all freelancers, so assuming this game isn't as bad "gameplay" wise as FF Brigade you'll presumably not have the same setup for all your characters.
So we've gone from palette swaps to simply using 2 sprites for 7 characters on screen.
Really, Square ?
My guess is that all of the jobs have one appearance. This is the freelancer (すっぴん) appearance.
Technically same character sprite rather than model, since this is 2D.
However, the screenshots are labeled with a "Screenshot from game in development" line. Presumably your whole party isn't going to be generic guy.
