Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition is a mobile remake of the massive Final Fantasy XV that released last year on PS4 and Xbox One platforms. When Eli played the opening section of it, he was pretty impressed with how well it followed the console game. The one thing we were all skeptical about was pricing because it isn’t a secret that Final Fantasy XV has been a massive project spanning over a decade for consoles. There’s a new trailer for the pocket edition that you can watch below:

If you’re on Android, pre-registration is now live on Google Play and you can do that here. The spec for Android is devices running 5.0 or later with a CPU of 1.5GHz or higher and with 2GB RAM or more. It will need between 5 and 8GB of free space depending on the resolution as well. While there’s no pre-registration for iOS yet, it will require iOS 11.1 and later and the minimum hardware requirement will be an iPhone 6S on the phone or iPad Air 2 for the iPad side of things. More information on compatibility is available on the Japanese information page here.

Here’s some footage of Eli playing the first 20 minutes of it at PAX:

The page also mentions pricing and there is variable pricing depending on the chapters. The first chapter will be free with chapters 2 and 3 costing $0.99 Yen each. Chapters 4 onwards until 10 will be $3.99 Yen each. There will be a bundle of everything for $19.99. Check out the forum thread on the game here. Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition will be out on iOS and Android later this year.

    I hope the game will support MFi 😅

    • John Gaver

      I think they already confirmed it wouldn't 🙁
      It would be coming on out switch if it did. Maybe in a later patch

      • Milotorou

        Where was this confirmed ? What a bummer 🙁

        (Ill still play it if it doesnt but id love them to have it working)

        It was in an interview about switch support. The creator said it didn't support physical controls in this initial release. If it does come to switch though I would probably expect them to update it on iOS.

        I don't think that is completely accurate as the interview was more stating that it doesn't currently support controllers but was not specific if the initial release would support them or not.

        Given they are developing it with Unity it was be pretty trivial to add controller support and if it isn't in the initial release I would expect it to be added soon.

      • John Gaver

        Where did you hear it was being developed in unity?

  • SashJ

    Can’t wait to play. Hope the in game world isn’t so stupidly big as the first version.

  • Mysterious Heroine X

    Wow requiring ios 11? That's totally not cool. And here I was anticipating this game the most out of all the new releases..

    • Kwadius

      Same here. I don't want to update to iOS 11.

      • thejbe

        Just out of interest, why not?

      • Reaganomics

        A lot of classic iOS games are incompatible with 11. The only reason I finally updated to iOS 11 is I installed most of these games onto my older idevices.

      • Mysterious Heroine X

        Yeah.. I probably won't be able to play this. I still want to keep ios10 and a its old games plus ios11 ruined the photos app for me, which I use the most out of all the stock apps. I'm just baffled as to why ios10 isn't the limit at most. It's almost like this is a partnership with Apple to try and get more people to upgrade, as Apple has done with some popular app releases in the past (in return for big features and advertising on their official channels).

    • curtneedsaride

      Yeah, I was holding back too. But my iPhone 6 stopped backing up to the cloud, so in anticipation of getting a new phone upgrade, I figured I'd see if iOS 11 would fix the iCloud sync. And it did. Backed up in no time at all. AND the new optimized photos feature got me 40+ GB back on my device!!! I was actually surprised at how well it was running again. It's not the best, but it was worth losing some of those old games... Now, I might keep my iPad on iOS 10 for a while longer, though.

  • curtneedsaride

    I'm so excited! Just saw this on Twitter. That makes me wonder when the iOS pre-registration will happen... AND, why are we needing to pre-register for a premium game in the first place?!? Is it like the Mario Run release?

    • Dailon Huskey

      Like Mario Run they will simply notify you when it's out, wish ios was doing this although as often as i check i will know haha

      • curtneedsaride

        Oh, me too. 😉 I mean, FFD2 and FMM18 will keep me busy. But when I'm not playing those, I'm checking for this! haha

      • Dailon Huskey

        FMM18 looks good ready for it too!

    • Dailon Huskey

      I will message you and let you know when it's out on ios
      you know I will know haha

    I want other games to follow this format. I'd adore a pocket version of Star Wars The Old Republic (the PC-only MMO, not KOTOR which runs on everything), with or without cute chibi big head characters.

    20$ for the whole game honestly seems fair. I’d much rather just pay that than pay for each chapter separately considering there’s technically 15 chapters.

  • Kat Janet Leigh

    Does the game has languange selection on the menu? Im from japan and gonna buy it on a jp app store but i wanna know if i can switch the languange in game

  • John Gaver

    This interview makes me really think MFi controls will eventually come. I mean why wouldn't they add it??
