Final Fantasy Agito Coming To iOS And Android This Winter

By Ishaan . September 10, 2013 . 9:33pm

Update: More details on the game are available here.

 

Back before Square Enix moved the game to PSP, Final Fantasy Type-0 was named Final Fantasy Agito XIII and was in development for phones. This week’s Famitsu magazine reveals that an “Agito” game is still headed to phones.  Final Fantasy Agito is in development for iOS and Android platforms (thanks, Re: Zaregoto) this winter.

 

The game is a new title that will give players a look at the history of the first bout. The game is somehow related to Final Fantasy Type-0, as certain characters from that game are visible in the magazine. You can see Ace from FInal Fantasy Type-0 in the top left.

 

We’ll have more details on Final Fantasy Agito as soon as they are available.

  • surakian

    It is a prequel.

    • Curan_Altea

      Really curious to see what the story details exactly, since you can see Rem wearing a class zero uniform- so it’d be after her and Machina joined.

      • surakian

        But then there is Jack in Class Six or Twelve’s mantle so I wouldn’t be surprised if this (SPOILERS INCOMING) was in one of the previous cycles…

        • Curan_Altea

          Yeah wasn’t thinking about that for some reason.
          There’s plenty of ways they could take the story.
          Hopefully it’s good.

  • SaiFFXIII

    Not what I expected, but I hope this game comes overseas when it can. Loved Type-0 <3

  • eilegz

    meanwhile we are still waiting for type 0

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      In vain

      Tepid vain.

    • Rogerrmark

      If it receives an HD port ,maybe. The PSP version is already a lost cause,seems like

  • Herok♞

    This is interesting since after all Type-0 did start life as a mobile game, I wonder if this is just left over stuff that they are repurposing.

  • Death Saved

    I suddenly want to strangle someone!

  • Solomon_Kano

    It’s kinda cool how this came full circle. Agito moved to PSP and became Type-0 and now they’re returning to the world of Type-0 with Agito for phones.

    • https://twitter.com/BinksFrost Binks5

      that almost sounds like an ad for phones

      • Solomon_Kano

        It really does lol.

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      Ported to consoles later by Nicalis.

      • Solomon_Kano

        Huh?

    • leingod

      If only “for phones” was a good thing…

    • Wesley Kenneth Houpt Mattingly

      Funny since I think it was Nomura that said “Agito sounds stupid, and just doesn’t make sense in relation to the game. That’s why we changed it.” Yet here we are.

      • Randy Marsh

        Oh for the love of….Nomura never said that, it was Hajime Tabata! Why do people give Nomura credit for stuff he has never said or done?

        • Wesley Kenneth Houpt Mattingly

          Doesn’t matter who said it, the point is that it was said, and then this happens.

  • Ni ~UNREAL BLACK THINGS~

    inb4 complains and stuff. and this getting ported to the vita after some years as PS mobile title.
    *go browse gamefaqs Type-0 board and laugh at the storm*

    would gladly play it. but i don’t like playing on my phone (not gonna waste battery’s enrergy with video games)

  • almostautumn

    …this almost makes me want to punch a hole in my laptop. Anything related to Type-0 and Valkyria Chronicles 3— ughhhhhhhh! Localize; do the barest gloss over and sell it as a Vita title; someone fan translate! I don’t care what or how; but I want those games soooooo bad!

  • Raze

    Prequel…
    That means we will know who is number 10 now?

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      Number 4 fo sho

    • surakian

      They talk about 10 in Type-0, though…

  • xAtKx

    Waiting for the storm

  • Ty Austin

    Got my hopes up for a version that may have been localized. :(

  • Go2hell66

    Geez almost forgot about this game

  • Ben Sylvia

    WHY??

  • JustThisOne

    Good to see Agito fulfill it’s original promise in some way or form. Considering this was originally announced back when FFXIII was in the works, it’s extremely nostalgic to hear.

  • https://twitter.com/BinksFrost Binks5

    that title is really neat looking

  • Tristan Diaz

    I’d like to see more…But as always, hope for a western release as well…lol.

  • fyi1191

    SE dive too deep into mobile world.

  • Randy Marsh

    Rawr rarwr! No Type-0 in US! Square dead! Fan translate! Vita remake! Me no want to import, me no know Japanese! Rawr rawr!

    There before everyone tries to put anymore of the generic Square rage remarks down. Did I get all of them or did I miss any?

    • xAtKx

      You forgot about ios.

    • Herok♞

      you forgot 1-14 killed FF take your pick

      • Dexward

        FF1 definitely killed FF.

        • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

          Max Payne 3 killed FF

          • http://s1.zetaboards.com/Espada_of_Alexandria/index/ konpon568

            Deus Ex killed FF.

        • Altin

          Hitman Absolution killed FF

    • Your Face

      Don’t forget Lightning is being shoved down our throats, Toriyama/Nomura/Kitase ruined everything, and no more sequels.

    • leingod

      You forgot “remake FF7″

    • John Diamond

      There’s nothing irrational about being annoyed that a game isn’t being ported over. It’s a totally rational reason to be ticked off. I can garuntee you if you said this on any other article before Bravely Default or Project X Zone’s release pretty much everyone would get annoyed

      • http://s1.zetaboards.com/Espada_of_Alexandria/index/ konpon568

        Being annoyed is irrational in general. For it is one of our aspects that is harder to control.

        • French

          you could totally understand a situation, deal with it and be annoyed/ticked off at the outcome once you comprehend it all. It only becomes irrational if you’re pissed off without fully understanding the ins and outs of it all

          • http://s1.zetaboards.com/Espada_of_Alexandria/index/ konpon568

            Sure! But we (you and I) aren’t machines. We do not do it all the time, you know.

      • http://blackstar2661.deviantart.com/ SilverSpades

        Still waiting on the PSO2 localization.

      • M’iau M’iaut

        Then we find a game on the systems we have that we wish to play or want to play again. And we do ask that console requests be left off the site, no good ever comes from the circular discussion that results.

        • Wesley Kenneth Houpt Mattingly

          Why can’t mods just leave people alone and let them argue. It’s the internet, anonymity causes everyone to be brave and express their opinions. What happened to freedom of speech in America. Seems like Freedom as long as it’s agreeable on Siliconera.

          • Elemiel

            Not everyone on this site is from America (though I am, but that’s a different story).

          • Wesley Kenneth Houpt Mattingly

            But this is an American site, and who cares if people just want to argue. If thats what people want to do it should be aloud. I understand if it’s spam or irrelevant. Just because someone has a dissenting opinion doesn’t mean they should be treated like a troll–it also doesn’t mean they’re wrong. But whatever, you’ll continue to do what you do because you don’t care.

          • Ferrick

            because, it would lead to nowhere but numbskulls talking shit and asking the other to go die in a fire

          • Ferrick

          • M’iau M’iaut

            If you just want to argue, there are plenty enough places to do just that. Here we do ask the community to follow just the basic ideas of respect and trust towards each other. That allows for a far more constructive sharing of opinions than throwing anger back and forth.

  • ヴィンチェンゾ Vincenzo

    Meanwhile the West is still waiting for the first chapter localisation :( Hope this new title will be compatible with Playstation Mobile, so I can play with Vita.

  • Tenabrus

    I’m glad Sky is fantranslating Type-0 on PSP, and how this game is in anyway related to it I can’t tell because everyone died at the end of the game.

  • M’iau M’iaut

    Let’s keep things as conversation and discussion, please. No copying @Randy_M:disqus and his generic blind hate suggestions. Thanks.

    And sorry Randy I am sure there are others out there….

    • komiko12

      The decision for a mobile game was quite reasonable because Agito was meant for phones when it was first announced years ago. And that was before the smartphone craze.

  • maruhadapurpurine

    The only good thing about Square is Nomura, if he were to quit, square would have nothing good left about them.

    • Randy Marsh

      How dare you say that when the great Yoshi-P is working there!

  • goldenlander

    You are not that desperate. It’s not a region-locked Nintendo. Hahaha.

  • klkAlexar

    I would play it. Too bad mobile games are almost never localized.

  • WhyWai

    there are more mobile games than console games from Square Enix nowadays… I wonder if they are that popular in mobile platform

    • M’iau M’iaut

      Phone games are every bit a console in Japan. This is a Japan release thread.

  • Espoir

    RIP Square Enix

  • Guest

    You know…..I liked Chaos Rings 2….I was surprised we actually got that game…..I’m not going to hold my breath on this though. SE has to officially announce shit in the west for me to even care anymore because they apparently feel that we Western’s don’t play JRPG’s….on ANY platform.

    Square….why are you listening to Sega? *smh*

    • http://twitter.com/#!/kaishou Kaishou

      No they just don’t feel like releasing type-0 because the platform it’s on is DEAD.

      • Lynx

        But you know, when the game first came out, it wasn’t.

        • http://twitter.com/#!/kaishou Kaishou

          I think the PSP started to decline badly after PSPGO failure.

  • Unlimax

    Who made these decisions .. ?
    Was that really the future of gaming Square-Enix promised us for !

  • Nas

    I died a little inside. “single tear-drop”

  • $36598391

    so S-E announces a brand new game and doesn’t say anything more about bringing Type 0 to NA

    This does look pretty cool though, I just wish they’d release it on more then mobile phones, I’m not big on touch screen controls

    I hope this will get released on the VITA as well

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    hmmm Iphone? Iphone?……….Iphone? really? :| Whats Next? FF7 HD remake on the IOS

  • Neophoton

    Is anyone really surprised by this?

  • kangms872

    maybe TCG?

  • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

    “Sigh” <—— (Also disappointed that it isn't for an main console)

    BUT, after looking at all the comments below I can say this. If you don't like it, don't buy it or play it. When they don't make as much profits over it, I'm sure they'll get the message then.

  • TheExile285

    wow comments are enable for this articled?

    anyway, i’m disappointed. i’ll leave it at that :/

  • Kelohmello

    I know that in general being disappointed by Cellphone games is reasonable, but in this case… what do people really have to complain about? Type-0 was already made and done with. Square has plenty of other games for the FF series in development right now and will be released in the near future. I can’t possibly see a reason why one game for cell phones should give any warrant to be upset when you have all this other great stuff coming your way.

    Bad user! *slaps hand*

  • M’iau M’iaut

    Find another site for the hate speech. Warned.

  • http://twitter.com/#!/kaishou Kaishou

    It’s ok, let him say what he wants. If he feels good about saying that to someone then so be it.

  • Guest

    I’m not seeing the “hate speech” but w/e that’s your prerogative. Why not just delete the initial comment? *smh*
