Last year Square Enix announced Final Fantasy Agito, which was only released in Japan before a Western release was announced during E3 2014. Since then nothing has been announced as to when the game would be arriving in the West. We now know why the radio silence was happening, because Square Enix is cancelling Final Fantasy Agito. Have no fear though, it will be ‘reborn’ as something else instead.

The rush to see who can capture the mobile game streaming market is heating up even more. Currently Mobcrush is still only available on iOS, the company is still working on a beta for Android.
