Square Enix held a “Final Fantasy for Smartphone Conference” in Tokyo this morning, where it announced a trio of new projects coming to iOS and Android.

Final Fantasy Portal App

The Final Fantasy Portal App will provide the latest Final Fantasy series news, such as Final Fantasy XV information, Final Fantasy XIV updates, and the latest Final Fantasy merchandise. The “Topic Corner” of the app will feature game walkthroughs, creator interviews, and character popularity polls.

The app is compatible with your Square Enix ID, so as you use the app—checking news and watching trailers, etc.—you’ll accumulate points that can be redeemed for digital content, such as wallpapers.

The “Triple Triad” card game made popular in Final Fantasy VIII is also featured in the app. It’s free-to-play and supports Bluetooth battles. Cards can also be shared with Final Fantasy XIV.

Final Fantasy Legends: Space-Time Crystal

A completely new story-oriented Final Fantasy featuring general director Takashi Tokita, sound designer Naoshi Mizuta, and CyDesignation character designer and illustrator Aiba Ryosuke.

The story of Final Fantasy Legends: Space-Time Crystal centers on “magic that passes through time” and takes players on a ‘grand adventure’ where they’ll cross through time and space. The game will have settings and systems from “various eras” matched for a smartphone-style RPG, and give players the sense of nostalgia they’d have playing Final Fantasy V or VI.

The world of Final Fantasy Legends is divided into the east continent of Azima and the west continent of Westa, which have long battled throughout history. The hero, Tumoro, is based on the small and calm island of Naval located in the center of the continents, where he one day meets a mysterious girl named Emo, who came from the future.

The game’s main story will be completely free-to-play and updated each month when it launches in Japan this winter.

The game will feature characters from previous Final Fantasy titles, as well as artwork by Yoshitaka Amano. It will be free-to-play with micro-transactions when it launches in Japan this winter.
