There is never a shortage of ways to access Final Fantasy
games. Whether it be living room consoles, handheld systems, PCs, mobile phones or otherwise, Square Enix is quick to establish a home for their most famous franchise everywhere they can. The next step for Final Fantasy XV
is a mobile take on the epic RPG, entitled Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition
Square Enix is marketing Pocket Edition
for what it is: a casual version of Final Fantasy XV
. Though it stars the same characters and tells the same story as XV
, it has cuter graphics, simple touch controls and a free episode designed to entice gamers to try it out. That's right, an "episode" — Pocket Edition
consists of ten episodes, all ten of which are available at launch. The first will be accessible for free with the rest requiring a purchase. According to Square Enix, the design of the game should allow players to easily jump in or cease play at their leisure.
Along with the Android and iOS platforms, Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition
is coming to Windows 10 devices later this year.
