Final Fantasy Airborne Brigade Logo

Square Enix announced yesterday that they will be bringing the “highly popular” social mobile title Final Fantasy: Airborne Brigade to the US and Canada. The game, co-developed by DeNa, features the same character artwork by Monster Octopus that was present in the 3DS game Theatrythm Final Fantasy and will have players riding airships and fighting powerful foes with custom-formed parties.

If the combination of the words mobile, social and game don’t immediately scare you off – you might want to check this out. Final Fantasy Airborne Brigade will be free to download for both Android and iOS devices, and if you pre-register on the game’s website you will also receive an exclusive in-game card of Cloud Strife.

Kenji Kobayashi, director at DeNa, had this to say about the game:
“In celebration of the franchise’s 25th anniversary this year, we have worked hard to create a unique game play experience where players can elevate each other through fun, cooperative play.”

Really, Square Enix? Your most popular franchise is having its 25th anniversary and all you have to show for it is a mobile social game? They could have localized a game fans actually want to play and perhaps put some effort into finishing Final Fantasy Versus XIII, but it seems the company just hates making money.

  • Jeez. First Capcom’s Mega Man X Over game, now this? Is Nintendo the only one who actually knows how to do a 25th anniversary, these days?

    • Not even them. They totally forgot about Metroid’s 25th anniversary….

      at least they did a ,metroid prime trilogy for their 23rd year anniversary 

  • Ben, would you stop your stupid comments that are very unprofessional not to mention selfish? First off, you must be a badass videogame maker to be bitching at this level. Second of all, you are aware I assume that they are having a conference on January regarding FFXIII Versus and Lighting Returns right?. Third of all, its free so WHO CARES? Plus it would be foolish to expect something good for FREE. Now I do agree about Type-O but all of you in Operation Rainfall got your games and stopped caring about the rest. I don’t see you doing movements nor pushing Sony nor Square so stop complaining for not getting them. I know Japanese so I could care less, I played the sh*t out of the game already

    I feel your rage, brother, Square-Enix has had its head up its own ass for a very long time.
