So, take the details of this article with a pinch of salt since my Korean is on the rusty side (and there’s no English translation as of the writing of this story). What we do have for sure are the first screens of the upcoming Final Fantasy XI reboot for mobile. In a conference taking place in Korea, we got an announcement that Nexon is partnering up with Square Enix to reboot the game, and it’s being made in the mobile version of Unreal Engine 4, which should make it look gorgeous. Nexon is rebuilding the game from the ground up on UE 4 in order to take advantage of all the engine can offer to mobile.
Other than the fact that the game will be an MMO, we really don’t have any further details. It may or may not come to this side of the world, and I’m sure that if it doesn’t, people will be very, very sad indeed. We should hopefully get more info in the near future, and we’ll definitely keep you informed. So, fingers crossed the game makes it to the US and EU.
