Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition is now available on the Apple, Google Play, and Amazon app stores.
Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition – the moderately adorable chibi version of Square Enix’s epic JRPG – is now available to download on mobile devices. In addition to the funky new art style the pocket edition of Final Fantasy XV features touch-optimised controls, and is delivered in ten episodic instalments.
The first episode is available to download and play for free, with subsequent episodes available to purchase individually. Episode 2 is priced at $0.99, and each additional episode is $3.99. Or, you can also download the whole thing as a $19.99 bundle.
It’s at the more expensive end for a mobile game, sure, but the overall price gets you one hell of an adventure. Despite its cute visuals, Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition features the same core cast of Noctis, Prompto, Ignis and Gladiolus, and retells the exact same story as the 2016 console release.
Here’s a new trailer from Square Enix to mark the game’s launch:
Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition supports iPhones and iPads running on iOS 11.1 or later, Android devices running on 5.0 or later, and the Amazon Fire HD 10. The game is also due for release on Windows 10 and tvOS devices later this year.
In an interview last August, game director Hajime Tabata also hinted at the possibility of this version of Final Fantasy XV eventually coming to the Nintendo Switch.
