Square Enix has released details on their forthcoming free-to-play mobile game, Mevius Final Fantasy. This project was developed as a free-to-play, high-end RPG for mobile devices and if the videos and images SE has made public are any indication, they’re definitely succeeding in making a game that looks more graphically lush and detailed than we’ve ever seen on those platforms. Take a look at the teaser trailer for the game below to see it in action.
In Mevius Final Fantasy you play as an offworlder who wakes up on the planet of Paramitia without any memory of how you came to be there or how you possess any of your fighting capabilities. You, and others like you, are called “Blanks” because you have no identity. That there are many Blanks in this world indicates a potential multiplayer or social component. But, you possess the potential to become the Warrior of Light and deliver the world from the clutches of chaos and the hordes of monsters threatening its stability. At present, two of your allies have been announced. They are Princess Sarah Lotte Cornelia and a moogle named Mog.
The action RPG’s battle system will be based on gathering Elements as the fighting goes on. As you strike your enemy, you build up the necessary number of Elements to perform special attacks derived from the resources obtained. These will take the form of summons that can focus on attack, defense or healing based on which powers you activate. You can also utilize cards during battle to assist you and can use Elements to strengthen your resistance whenever enemies use an element of the same type. A given Element is strong against their opposite but weak when used against itself. There is also a Break condition that can be exploited when attacking properly and when this happens the enemy is more vulnerable to attacks than normal.

Mevius Final Fantasy is scheduled for release in Japan Spring 2015. No release date has been confirmed in the West, but given that the official site can be viewed in Japanese or English, it’s likely that the game will be localized at some point.
