Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition Announced

Square Enix has announced yet another spinoff set within the Final Fantasy XV universe.

Titled simply Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition, the new game is set for iOS, Android, and Windows 10 devices sometime later this year. It’s supposed to retell the story of Final Fantasy XV, but in a more compact manner (quite literally). Featured above, you can view the game’s announcement trailer.

Players will follow the 10-episode story of the console game and its main characters, however it uses a new art style to feasibly run on smartphone devices. The game also utilizes touch controls that are optimized for smartphones. The first episode will be free, while the remaining episodes sound like you’ll need to purchase them separately.

    Well that was unexpected, surprise they’re not trying to squeeze it on the Vita as well.

  • Nagato

    Finally there’s a reason to buy a Windows 10 smartp-HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAAHEEHEEHOOHOOHAAHAA.

    I’m one of like of four people that has a windows phone. I quite like the phone but damn M$ threw it in front of the bus.
    Surprisingly enough you can get Final fantasy III on windows phone(IIRC it is the DS port)

  • Uncle Ocelot

    Gladiolus is looking a bit like Boom Knuckles in this. It kind of looks like the DS remakes, but not quite. I was hoping for ATB given the platform it’s on.

  • Joel Leonheart

    ……Whatever 😒😒

  • Pilebunker

    (it is the DS port)
    They could have used any version and they picked the worst one?

  • Bitterbear

    Windows 10 for smartphones needs more love from Microsoft. Or maybe they’re neglecting it on purpose because the don’t want Apple to invent new iOS features two years after Microsoft implemented them.

  • Kitsune

    I laughed so hard before I watched the video. But for a mobile game it does look quite nice and fun, not that I will ever play it.

    Chibi isn’t supposed to have sex appeal. But damn that Gladio

    And just when i though FFXIV based TV series on Netflix was weird enough, now i’m convinced that SE found a new kind of drug, and this one is strong !

  • luggage lad

    like I’m not excited about it but… I kind of like more phone games like this and less daily-login grindy gatcha-fests like every other smartphone game.

  • I will just get the PC version instead.

  • Ruggarell

    Two shitty big budget FF games within the same decade


    Thank god Dragon Quest 11 and KH3 is coming soon I can’t take all this disappointment.

  • ProxyDoug

    I like the art style, I love low poly stuff… but there is something very off about this.
