Get pumped: A native mobile take on the Final Fantasy Tactics franchise is heading to Android and iOS, Square Enix has revealed via a Japanese language teaser site dedicated to the game and pre-registration for it. Get sad: according to the signage on the site, it'll be a Mobage release, which pretty much promises that it'll be filled with various free-to-play hooks, twists, and shenanigans.
Final Fantasy dot net has a breakdown of what you can learn from the page:
Square Enix has opened a new Japanese website and pre-registration for a new smartphone title called Final Fantasy Tactics S. This “social” game, something of a spinoff of the Ivalice Alliance, will feature designs originally created by Ryoma Ito. The game will also include races, jobs, and monsters featured in 2008′s Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift for the Nintendo DS.
It'll be interesting to see where Square Enix decides to weave the social hooks into the Tactics experience. Considering it's a turn-based strategy series, there'll be a lot of good places to sneak them in. Just imagine the possibilities! Timers, and slot machine mechanics, and IAP weaponry oh my!
No release date or territories have been announced. We'll keep our eyes out for any more intel, though.
