Final Fantasy Agito coming to the iOS
« on: September 12, 2013, 07:24:49 AM »

You might be asking yourself, "Wait, what? I thought Final Fantasy Type-0 was Agito." You are right, but it seems Square Enix has not dropped the name after all. Square Enix has announced Final Fantasy Agito, a prequel story of sorts and an alternate take on the Type-0 universe. FF Type-0 Director Hajime Tabata is said to be producing on the project, with Takeharu Ishimoto returning as composer and direction lead by Masayasu Nishida of Star Ocean fame.


The game will arrive on iOS and Android platforms this winter in Japan. It is set to be a Free to Play title with micro-transactions. Players will be able to create their own character to participate in missions throughout the world of Oriense. Although the game is F2P, players can pay real money for items to recover energy points expended by taking on these missions as well as revive after mission failures and other gacha items. By deepening your relationship with certain characters, they’ll appear to help you at various points along the way.

The cast of FF Type-0 will return for this outing, although they’ll be stationed in different classes as the world itself has a different fate in store for them as another tale set in the mythology of Fabula Nova Crystallis. The game will feature a new character by the name of Myuu Kagerohi (voiced by Haruka Tomatsu), as well as returning characters Ace, Rem, and Jack.

The main story will be told in chapters and with various player decisions and community voting, the story will evolve as you progress through the game. New chapters will be available once every two weeks and within those two weeks, ten days will account for Solo Play – allowing players to tackle missions on their own – while four days are set aside for Team Play where players will have to work together to defeat bosses. Agito will also play host to a job system and characters will have specific abilities based on jobs.

While the game has been announced for Japan, there's been no word on whether this title will see a westward release. Final Fantasy Type-0, originally released for the PlayStation Portable in 2011, has not been announced for localization.
