This week’s Famitsu magazine revealed that Final Fantasy Agito, a title that will give players a look at the history of the first bout of Final Fantasy Type-0 is currently in development for iOS and Android devices. Now, we have more details regarding the upcoming game, including information on a new character.
According to the magazine report, Final Fantasy Agito will be a free-to-play title with premium items you can purchase with cash.
Hajime Tabata, known for directing Final Fantasy Type-0 and The 3rd Birthday will be assuming the role of producer for Final Fantasy Agito. The new character in the game, Myu Kagerohi (pictured on the right of the screenshot), will be a representative cadet in Final Fantasy Agito. She will be voiced by Haruka Tomatsu, known for the voice of Asuna in Sword Art Online.
The main character of the game will be a cadet who can be customized by the player. The flow of the game will be similar to those of other free-to-play mobile games, where you have Action Power that is recovered over time and is consumed when you accept missions. There will be decision making options that change the outcome of the story. There is also amsystem, where you can get support from specific allies in missions by becoming friendlier with them.
The first part of Final Fantasy Agito will be about the history of Orience, the world of Final Fantasy Type-0. From the second part onward, the main story that changes according to your choices, will take over. The story will progress through chapters, and once you complete it all, it will start over from the beginning. This allows you to experience different story routes by choosing other choices from what you previously selected.
According to the report, each chapter will consist of about two weeks of playtime. Out of the 14 days, 10 will be spent on the “Solo Play Phase,” where you’ll be taking on missions as individual characters. You’ll be spending the other four days on what’s known as the “Team Play Phase,” where you’ll be taking on bosses with a team.
There will be a job system, with exclusive abilities for each job. Famitsu also reports that the game supports asynchronous play, so you won’t have to worry about the time you play with others. Additionally, game’s system will allow you to follow through the story without the need for leveling too much. The cash paid premium items will have features such as Action Power recovery items, ability lotteries, and continues for failed missions.
Final Fantasy Agito is slated for release this winter for Android and iOS devices.
