Having already reached 6 million downloads in Japan, smartphone game Final Fantasy Brave Exvius is coming west, Square Enix announced today. The free game, which is co-developed by Square Enix and Gumi, will be released sometime this summer.
In a press release, Gumi described the turn-based title as an "entirely new role-playing adventure for the mobile generation."
Here is a quick story synopsis for Final Fantasy Brave Exvius:
"Adventurers will follow two knights of the kingdom of Grandshelt, and a young girl who suddenly appears before them, as they begin their quest to pursue a highly sought after crystal. Players will make their way through various types of dungeons to search for items, collect gil, uncover hidden paths, and venture new routes."
Final Fantasy Brave Exvius aims to be easy to pick up for newcomers, while fans of the series may recognize some of the characters, as the Warrior of Light, Cecil, Vivi and Terra all show up.
Although the game doesn't launch until summer, you can preregister now at finalfantasyexvius.com. Do that and you will receive "special in-game items" when the game arrives. These were not detailed, however.
It was also confirmed today that Final Fantasy Brave Exvius will offer six languages for its launch outside of Japan: English, German, French, Spanish, Chinese (traditional) and Korean. Finally, the game will be playable at Square Enix's booth at E3 next month, from June 14-16.
