We've been keeping our eye on this game for a long time, and today you can finally download it. Final Fantasy XV: A New Empire is now available on iOS and Android. Find the iOS version here, or the Android version here. This is a mobile MMO based in the Final Fantasy XV universe from the developers behind mobile mega-hits Game of War: Fire Age and Mobile Strike. Do we have your attention now? They released a short cinematic trailer to accompany the launch of the game, which you can check out right here:
"This first-of-its-kind collaboration brings together the amazingly rich universe created by Square Enix with the strategic, concurrent, real-time gameplay MZ has perfected in their global mobile MMO games Game of War - Fire Age and Mobile Strike. FINAL FANTASY XV: A NEW EMPIRE expands the universe of players by making the game available to anyone with a smartphone or tablet. Now millions of fans can create alliances and battle with each other live, in real-time, on a global stage, as part of an ever-evolving story."
Like Machine Zone's other games, A New Empire is going to focus on real-time battles and building an empire. All of their games have made an absolute killing, and players always end up getting hopelessly addicted to the progression loops introduced; we have a bad feeling that we're about to bid what little free time we had left goodbye. You'll be able to form guilds with your friends and compete in massive real-time wars for resource dominance in an attempt to build the ultimate empire.
"FINAL FANTASY XV has become an iconic cultural force with a passionate global community and we are huge fans," said MZ CEO Gabe Leydon. "We are incredibly honored to partner with Square Enix to bring FINAL FANTASY XV to mobile during the 30th anniversary of the FINAL FANTASY franchise."
"The partnership with MZ breathes new life into the mobile gaming world," said Yosuke Matsuda, President and CEO of Square Enix. "We are delighted that the talented team at MZ, with a successful track record in developing and publishing global mobile games, has adapted the FINAL FANTASY XV universe into a mobile strategy game." Hajime Tabata, Director of FINAL FANTASY XV adds, "I'm very pleased to be able to work with such an amazing partner on this new FINAL FANTASY XV, which players around the world will be able to enjoy together."
Give it a go and let us know what you think! Keep in mind that mobile games are always a little glitchy at launch, so be patient if you run into some slowdown. You could be rewarded handsomely for your perseverance!
