    What’s about that “quality committee” that they agreed to not use Final Fantasy name on trash titles like this? they probably forgot about it already.

    • ThomasTruong

      The quality committee consists of a chimpanzee, a magic 8-ball, and a senile grandmother playing a copy of Flappy Bird on a stool.

        i dont know whos actually in it ( i think some people behind ff 13 which says a lot about their knowledge about quality imo)
        but your suggestions are probably as effective as the real commitee ;=)

          Kitase, the guy who directed the highest selling game in the series…

  • KingGunblader

    Square Enix aren’t even trying anymore, are they?

    • Paul Rodriguez

      Sure they are. Trying to get as much money as possible with these free-2-play games.

  • Alex Cattaneo

    Yaaay cool…ow its f2p phone crap…..-_-

    It looks like the Dragon Quest Monsters Super Light — where they take the Puzzle and Dragons formula and attach it to a more traditional (Read: good) battle engine might be catching on. Hope this gets localized.

  • Land of Green Pasture

    they sure have some budget to make needless app like this, just do your fans a favor and give some new infos bout XV

  • Nah

  • Weggie25

    Its nice their doing this and all but id rather have another Final Fantasy All the Bravest

    Said no one ever

  • Dystopiq

    • Paul Rodriguez

      It’s OK. That is kind on true.

  • Tincho Kudos

    If they put at least 50% of the time they spent creating weird names for its games, all of these games would be glorious.

  • subsamuel01

    Seems like square is just slapping the Final Fantasy name on every RPG they make.

  • SirRichard

    Had to balance out the SaGa and Mana news, I guess.

  • Ms_Fortune

    If all the bravest is any indication, they might as well slap an upfront fee on this.

  • daylightdies

    I don’t care for mobile games, but I am a sucker for old school RPGs. Color me mildly interested. In the sole screenshot the character design for the player team looks atrocious.

  • TerrenceEncore Jones

    Is there a reason all of these very interesting looking free to play games are going to IOS and android instead of handhelds gaming systems? Are these games that the main video companies just won’t touch.

    • Paul Rodriguez

      None of them look interesting. The reason they are getting mobile treatment is because they know they can nickel and dime a bunch of suckers with all their in-app purchases.

  • Sora96

    Clearly everyone below wants Square Enix’s mobile division disbanded which is stupid.

  • Mc-kun

    Where is my TWEWY and Dew prism? I know phone games are common in Japan but come on.

  • Paul Rodriguez

    What is with all the clones fighting? Who ever is in charge of naming these games needs to be fired.
