Yesterday we told you about Square Enix’s plans for a mobile-exclusive iteration of their Final Fantasy series called Final Fantasy Agito. Set in the same realm as the PSP title Final Fantasy Type-0 from a couple of years ago, Final Fantasy Agito retells the story of Type-0 from the perspective of new characters which you create and control. It also utilizes some very interesting real-time ideas that have you building up your team during the single player campaign over the course of 10 days, and then taking them online to battle against tough bosses alongside other players and their teams. Today Square Enix has released a brief teaser for Final Fantasy Agito, and it looks really impressive.
Sadly, there’s no word on if Final Fantasy Agito will be heading outside of Japan. Type-0 was a critical hit but it also never reached our Western shores, but I’m still holding out hope for Agito. It’s also worth pointing out that Square Enix has designed Final Fantasy Agito to be free-to-play, with the entire game able to be completed without spending a dime but at the expense of a depleting energy mechanic. I’m really interested to see how that turns out too. If we get word that Final Fantasy Agito is heading to the US we’ll be sure to let you know.
