    Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition (iOS,Android,Windows 10)

    Yep, this is a thing. Same story and characters, episodic release.


    A few extra details:
    -Development began 2 years ago, right after Episode Duscae. Was always planned to be a thing apparently.
    -No side quests or optional content, only main story.
    -10 episodes, first is free, 360 yen per chapter in Japan, discount for bundle.
    -each chapter is around 2 hours long, 20 hours for the whole game.

    Same story but it looks and plays differently compared to the main version. It's also an episodic game meaning that it's structured differently. I'd say this is different enough for a new thread. It's basically a mobile remake of XV, I don't see the issue.

    Not even joking I would buy this over the PC version if characters mouths moved when they talked. I wish that small of a thing didn't bug me as much as it does, but ugh.

    I dunno this looks pretty cute and fun lol. I'm gonna be a sellout and say I'm rather sold:



    edit: assuming episode 1 is basically chapter 1 in game then we can basically roam a map with some hunts and 2 or 3 sidequests (dave, LUL). it ends at the dock/ship town right? then we sleep and rip isomnia. Chapters 9-12 can probably be condensed into 1 episode so ... so we should be able to get a good taste of what the entire game could be like for ep1

    Just what I wanted, to pay even more money part by part for an inferior version of a game I've already played.
    Should just rename it Final Fantasy: Cash In

    It's out now for iOS and Android. Gotta say it's really nice and smooth. It's like FFXV: Abridged without it being a parody. I wish we had more high effort games like this on mobile instead of blatant cash grabs. It's like people forgot what a fucking game is on the app store lately.

    Edit: Also they didn't skip out, you still have to do the car rides to get from place to place, feels semi-open world.

    Damn, wish I could get past the style.

    Otherwise I'd be all over it.

    When you say XV abridged... I mean the main games story was already pretty abridged so how much different is the mobile story telling or is it actually better?

    Abridged meaning shortened. Like the ifrit encounter at the very beginning of the game is basically a quick cutscene followed by a fade to black. There's no explorable area or a chance to attack Ifrit. That cuts to the opening where you are pushing the car. Everything is still there but distilled for mobile.

    I don't mean that as a bad thing either. They've done a good job with it so far for chapter 1.
