Final Fantasy Agito Coming to the West (iOS, Android, PS Vita)

Final Fantasy Agito is officially coming to Western shores for iOS & Android announced Square Enix at E3 2014. This, along with the announcement of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD (PS4/XBOne), has made Western Final Fantasy fans very happy indeed!

Final Fantasy Agito was previously only available in Japan for Mobile platforms, and was released on May 14 2014. An extended & updated version, called “Final Fantasy Agito+” is in development for PS Vita, and is likely to be the version headed to the West… Although it remains to be seen.

Agito is actually based on the prototype version of Type-0, which was originally called “Final Fantasy Agito XIII” before having the name changed to Type-0. While Type-0 was eventually developed and released after a long development cycle (for PSP instead of mobile), the original concept was eventually picked back up by Square Enix and fully developed into what became “Final Fantasy Agito” (named after that original concept of what Type-0 originally was).

Agito is the latest title in the Fabula Nova Crystallis line, that started with Final Fantasy XIII (FF13). Each of the games in the Crystallis series is set in the same world as FFXIII, and includes the original FFXIII, FFXIII-2, Lightning Returns, the upcoming Final Fantasy IXV (FF15), as well as FF Type-0.

FF: Agito is meant to be the easiest way to learn and get acquainted with the Fabula Nova Crystallis mythos that fans will get to experience through the other games in the series.

Here is a longer look at actual FF: Agito gameplay.

The war-torn land of Orience is the setting for Final Fantsay Agito, where players on iOS and Android mobile devices take on the role of a cadet in the Dominion of Rubrum as they aim to become Agito, a prophesied savior of Orience.

Key Final Fantasy Agito Features:
* Character Customization: Create a unique character in the world of Final Fantasy Agito. Players have access to a variety of character customization options, including gender, facial features, hairstyles and more.
* Player Choice: Interact with other cadets at Akademeia, including key characters from Final Fantasy Agito. The decisions players make at the Akademeia will affect the course of history in the game, which in turn will affect the worldwide player community.
* Missions: Players can head out on missions to raise their level, and find/craft their ultimate weapon. Players can also confront powerful enemies in large-scale, cooperative battles involving the entire Final Fantasy Agito player population.

No Western release date for Final Fantasy Agito was announced, but it will eventually be released as a free download (with real-currency in-app purchases that can be made) for iOS & Android and/or PS Vita. It will either hit in late 2014 or slip to early 2015.
