Back at Gamescom, Square Enix surprised many by announcing Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition, a mobile version of its successful JRPG Final Fantasy XV.

Today, thanks to a broadcast on Twitch, we get to see the first gameplay, including part of the tutorial and, after what appears to be a crash, the very first cutscene of the game, that many will find familiar.

The game is rendered in a rather adorable chibi style, with the full main story of the original game included. The biggest difference is that it’s a bit more linear due to its episodic nature. The first episode will be free, and then there are going to be nine more episodes that you’ll have to pay for.

You can check it out below, and if you want to see more, you can also enjoy the first trailer and the original announcement.

On the console front, Square Enix is keeping up with the updates Final Fantasy XV for both PS4 and Xbox One. Alongside the Assassin’s Festival crossover event, they recently released patch 1.15, while the story DLC Episode Ignis is scheduled for release in December.

Recently, we also heard a clarification about a possibly teased teased Switch version of the game, the resolution on Xbox One X, on top of more details on DLC and on the possibility of more crossovers.

Final Fantasy XV is currently available for PS4 and Xbox One, while he Pocket Edition will release this fall for iOS, Android and Windows 10. A Windows Edition will then follow on PC via Steam in early 2018.
