[E3 2014] Square Enix confirms Final Fantasy Agito for a Western release soon

Back in May of this year we posted about Square Enix bringing Final Fantasy Agito to Android but unfortunately only to those folks who reside in Japan. During E3 2014 Square Enix made the announcement that Final Fantasy Agito would finally be getting released to the Western markets as well.

For those of you not familiar with this game, Final Fantasy Agito is a free-to-play additional to the Final Fantasy franchise that sticks to the same style of turn-based RPG gameplay that many of you are already familiar with but one of the more unique features regarding Final Fantasy Agito is the fact that it is supposed to support multiplayer. Agito is actually based off of the Final Fantasy Type-0 world so there is a lot of the same character and locations in Agito that you would see in Type-0.

Once you’ve created your character, done the necessary steps to get yourself properly equipped, you will then start selecting missions and heading out into the world, battling monsters and generally being a Final Fantasy badass. You’ll have two computer controlled party members to help you along the way which can be switched out for actual players. You can pick either Story Missions or Side Missions, depending on what you want to do at the time.

Missions seem to be a lot like the Monster Hunter style of games. By that we mean your targets are generally big monsters you need to kill. However there are other mission objectives as well by the looks of it. Of course there also happens to be big boss monsters to take on as well.

Final Fantasy Agito will be a free-to-play title but the good news is that there isn’t actually a lot to spend your real money on. The bad news is that one of those things happens to be an energy system where you can either purchase more energy to continue dong missions once you’ve used up all your energy for that day, or wait it out until it refills enough to do another mission. Other than that, there are two other items to spend money on, one of which are also based on timers – Time Resets, which allow you to retry any crafting or upgrading attempt you previously failed. The last item are Phoenix Downs which allow you to continue a battle you have died in.

For those of you looking forward to getting your hands on Final Fantasy Agito, there is no actual release date announced right now, only that it will be coming to Western markets in the near future.
