The aptly named Pocket Edition of Final Fantasy XV aims to deliver the full Final Fantasy XV narrative in mobile form. Due to obvious hardware limitations and artistic liberties, the game will boast a unique and all new aesthetic.
Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition seems to also feature some voiced dialogue—ripped straight out of the original console version. It is unclear whether the forthcoming mobile game will let players choose between different languages.
The announcement comes shortly after Nvidia announced Final Fantasy XV would be coming to Windows sometime in 2018.
A copy of the official press release for the just announced mobile title can be read below:
