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.

Not buying under any circumstances.

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?

Seems Japan-only. There was another Final Fantasy Artniks from 2012 that was Japan-only. http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/F...antasy_Artniks

50 years from now, when some intrepid future holodeck gamer is creating a history of videogames compendium, the PS3-and-onwards stretch of Square-Enix's output will be know as, "The Please Understand & Be Excited Period".

It uses the same all their other games have used, except for the blue buttons on the bottom which use a more round one.

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.

But ATB is the laziest game ever made, so that's saying a lot.

Edit: not that I support this franchise-destroying cash-grab bullshit.

Odd. I thought one of their most popular titles, Final Fantasy was created using that random word generator.

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.

It's always mobile.

Mobile wouldn't be too bad, though. But mobile + Gree on the other hand...

My guess is that all of the jobs have one appearance. This is the freelancer (すっぴん) appearance.
