Final Fantasy Legends: Jiku no Suisho and Final Fantasy Brave Exvius Announced; First Screenshots

on November 18, 2014 4:17 AM

Square Enix just announced during an event in Tokyo two new games belonging to the Final Fantasy franchise, even if unfortunately they’re for for smartphones.

Final Fantasy Legends: Jiku no Suisho (Final Fantasy Legends: The Space-Time Crystal) will be directed by Takashi Tokita (who co-directed Chrono Trigger and directed Parasite Eve), and will be based on the concept of travel across space and time.

It’ll be a full fledged JRPG said to “inherit the legacy of Final Fantasy.”  The game’s score will be composed by Final Fantasy XI, Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Lighting Returns: Final Fantasy XIII composer Naoshi Mizuta.

Final Fantasy  Brave Exvius will be another full fledged JRPG with a “deep story and diverse characters.”  It will be directed by Brave Frontier producer Hisatoshi Hayakashi but despite the “Brave” in the name it won’t have anything in common with Hayakashi-san’s previous work, but will be firmly set in the Final Fantasy style.

Yoshitaka Amano is also involved in the project (as you can easily notice from his illustrations below), even if the full extent of his involvement still hasn’t been disclosed.

Both games will be released for iOS and Android in Japan in 2015. They will also be free to play (with optional in-app purchases).

In addition to those Square Enix also announced the free Final Fantasy Portal app. It will broadcast the latest information about the series and include Final Fantasy VIII‘s Triple Triad as a free minigame. It will also interact with the same game that will be included in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, even no further details have been provided.

Below you can see the first screenshots, logos and artwork released by the publisher.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
