Earlier today, Square Enix announced a brand new Fullmetal Alchemist mobile game during the Fullmetal Alchemist 20th anniversary livestream. The Fullmetal Alchemist manga originally debuted in July 2001 and it celebrates 20 years this month. The Fullmetal Alchemist manga by Hiromu Arakawa saw multiple adaptations including the anime Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood that I’ve watched multiple times. I’ve grown to love everything about that anime (especially the music) so I’m excited to see what Square Enix will do for the mobile game. Square Enix’s mobile game is titled Fullmetal Alchemist Mobile. Watch the teaser trailer below:
As of this writing, there are a lot of unknowns about Fullmetal Alchemist Mobile. The genre, release window, a global release, and gameplay details haven’t been revealed. It will likely be free to play but given the source material, I’m still excited to see what Fullmetal Alchemist Mobile ends up being. As of now, it is set to have more information revealed later this year. Square Enix is erratic with mobile game releases outside Japan so I’m not sure whether we should expect this one to leave Japan. Given the popularity of Fullmetal Alchemist, hopefully we get some information about a global release following the initial information reveal set for this Winter.
