Late last year, Square Enix announced that they were working on Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition. For the most part this is the same Final Fantasy XV that console gamers have come to know and love, with the main difference being that the game has been redesigned for mobile devices, and that some of the changes include making the characters into smaller, cuter versions of themselves.
Square Enix had initially promised a release last year, but obviously that did not come to pass, and earlier this year a listing on the Google Play Store revealed that the release date could be set for the 9th of February. Turns out the listing was semi-accurate because the game has officially been released and is now available for download via the iTunes App Store or Google Play, depending on your mobile platform.
As per Square Enix’s mobile titles, Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition does not come cheap and is priced at $20, but given that the Pocket Edition is said to stay faithful to the original game, save for some changes here and there, $20 doesn’t seem like it is too steep of a price. So if you don’t have a console or can’t wait for the PC version, then we guess this will be a good place to start.
