Bishounen RPG Mobius Final Fantasy Gets a PC Release in Japan

Square Enix has announced a PC release for Mobius Final Fantasy.

The game was previously released for iOS and Android – however it’s now getting a Steam release sometime this November in Japan. Featured above, you can view a new trailer for the game’s PC release.

While the mobile game was free-to-play, there’s no word on how the PC release will be distributed. You can pre-register for the PC version over on the game’s official website. Square will offer various in-game bonuses pending how many users pre-register, like a Phoenix Down, a Revival Ticket, and more.

    “Windows (Steam)”

    Did the phone version got localized? Because if so the chances of a Steam version coming west are pretty high. Square Enix has been pretty agressive in squeezing everything Final Fantasy they can on Steam. Wish they did the same for Dragon Quest.

    I second the Dragon Quest comment, even though we got the musou game, and are obviously getting Builders and XI…

    It makes little sense whatsoever too; milking the hell out of inferior versions of older FF games, whilst quality ports of the DQ series are just left on mobile instead. You’d think they’d wanna prepare the audience for DQXI as much as possible.

    Bishounen meaning is “pretty boy” just wanted to point that out.

    I wanted to same at first but when I got my hands on some blowable cash, I looked into the FF ports which from what was said forced you to go through Squares site to play the game that you bought off Steam and the control mapping difficult to figure out what goes where and permanent (or hard to change afterwards).

    Heh, you think DQXI is coming over and being ported to Steam.

    I see no reason why it wouldn’t be, with the current trend of DQ non-exclusivity and that version of XI running on Unreal 4.

    Japan only? A little weird, they aren’t huge on PC games that aren’t VNs, eroge, or a combination of the two.

    If they bothered to localise Builders, then it is reasonable to assume we may get XI.

    I’m still waiting for that announcement of Heroes II being brought overseas/to PC.

    I’m still hoping for DQ Builders to show up on Steam. Glad the musou one did.

    You say that like Builders wasn’t influenced by it being based on a series that had massive influence. A better choice of games would be DQVII but at the rate they’re going, DQXI wouldn’t be the same game with all the script changes they’re planning and likely cut content in the next localization.

    Sell it to me like you’re a best buy intern desperate for a commission because the regional manager said there would be staff cuts.

    My brother disliked it and I tend to agree with his judgement, as I’ve never played it, I don’t know what I’m in for. His major gripe was that it was tutorial after tutorial constantly breaking up the pace.

    That is so stupid and false. PC games in Japan are popular since the times of the MSX1/2, Sharp MZ/X1/X68000, NEC PC 80/88/98, Fujitsu Micro 7/Towns/Marty and now modern PC.
    There were and are hundreds of famous games like for example Ys, Xanadu, Sorcerian, Eiyuu Densetsu, the Touhou games, the Kogado Schwarzschild, Power Dolls and Cosmic Soldier series, the Valis series, the Daisenryaku series, miriads of visual novels like Snatcher, Policenauts, Silent Mobius, the good C’s ware EVE and Divi-Dead, the Elf Yu-No and the Dragon Knight series, many danmakus and shooters like Aquales, R-Type, Geograph Seal, Thunderforce and Rayxanber, the Princess Maker and Hydlide series, etc.. And simply look at the doujin scene for other good titles that after are released on consoles in all-ages or simplified versions if they are not eroges.
