Square Enix Unveils Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition

Square Enix Unveils Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition 1

Square Enix doesn’t seem to be shying away from the Final Fantasy XV property. The renowned Japanese company has just announced Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition.

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.

Graphically, the upcoming mobile experience looks like a cross between the popular Final Fantasy Theatrhythm games on the 3DS and the Nintendo DS iterations of Final Fantasy III and IV.

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.
