Square Enix announced today that the old and glorious MMORPG Final Fantasy XI is heading towards its final expansion (even if service will continue on PC), and a mobile release in collaboration with Nexon.

On top of it, a new mobile game set in the world of Vana’diel titled Final Fantasy GrandMasters will also be released in Japan, with a beta starting this April.

Within the press kit of the presentation, there were the first screenshots of this new game, alongside the poster artwork for the last Final Fantasy XI expansion Rhapsodies of Vana’diel, and a beautiful celebratory illustration by Tetsuya Nomura.

We also learn that Final Fantast GrandMasters will be free to play with a cash shop, and aims for a full Japanese release in 2015 for iOS and Android.

It will allow players to create their own character, combine and change jobs similarly to what they did in Final Fantasy XI, and to choose their favorite character among all the familiar races of the veteran MMORPG.

It will also feature MMO-like features like chat, co-op battles and more.

You can check all the screenshots and illustrations out in the gallery below.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
