It wouldn’t be Final Fantasy if the name made sense.
What would a contemporary Final Fantasy game be without an insane name? I don’t want to know. For better or for worse, Final Fantasy Brave Exvius carries on in the tradition of the franchise’s nonsensical names, although it has only been available in the Japan. That is soon to change, though. For those unaware, Brave Exvius is Square-Enix’s latest mobile entry of the Final Fantasy franchise, and it has finally been officially announced for release outside of Japan.
After several failed attempts at mobile games, including Airborne Brigade and All the Bravest, longtime fans of the franchise have been skeptical of the quality of any forthcoming titles for the franchise. Luckily, with the successful releases of Final Fantasy Record Keeper and Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ, Square-Enix has ignited faith in fans that more great mobile games are to come, and Brave Exvius may be no exception, based on its Japanese trailer:
Brave Exvius is atypical in its format for a free-to-play mobile game as it actually contains an intricate plot and whole maps to explore, similar to the standard RPG titles in the franchise. Similar to Record Keeper, players will be able to recruit heroes from the classic games as allies in battle. Additionally, its striking character sprites seek to add more visual flair to the title. As a whole, there is a lot going for it, so this may be another one game to keep an eye on in the coming months.
Currently, there is no definite release date for the title, but players outside of Japan will soon be able to pre-register for the title and be one of the first to experience Final Fantasy Brave Exvius in its global debuts on the iTunes and Google Play stores.
