Here’s a rundown on the game:


Darkness converges upon us, and the world crumbles before our very eyes…

What was once a sanctuary for the weary has now become a battlefield.

Long ago, the deities Spiritus and Materia warped the fabric of time and space to create a new world—a world they populated with warriors from other realms.

These men and women were forced to fight day and night without reprieve, and the strain of endless battle soon grew to be too great.

With battered bodies and shattered spirits, they sent out a cry for help…

  • Played the JP copy a little bit on Android. I think people that automatically dismiss a game for being phone-only might want to give this one a chance.

    Far better roster than Dissidia NT’s going to have for sure and an actual story mode.

  • Smartphone? Well we can always pray for a PC port. Square likes dumping some of that stuff on PC, they did it with Mobius.

  • Envy-Noson

    Yes! I need this.

    So… basically Brave Exvius with chibi 3D models instead of 2D sprites and less original characters I don’t care about when I draw? Might be fun to play for a while and not spend a dime at like every other free to play SE game.

  • I don’t think it’s a depth issue. A lot of these phone games, including this one, has a surprising amount of depth. I’d imagine microtransactions/stamina are part of it but there are games getting a bad rap but at the same time I know friends of my own that know my reasonings for ‘even touching them’ that refuse to play them out of principle. That games shouldn’t be on phones and that you’re doing a disservice by allowing the model to flourish.

    Except, that’s where a good majority of dev energy is going and money is coming from as of late.

    Oh well. More for me, I guess.

    The models could work in a ff5 remake for 3ds. they’re on par with Bravely Default models

  • Envy-Noson

    I wouldn’t mind a FF6 remakes that doesn’t look like a shitty flash game.

  • ProxyDoug

    The art style is charming.

  • SiliconNooB

    I want to see FFVI remade using the Octopath Traveler engine!
