Another mobile game is in the works as a new addition to Square Enix's Final Fantasy franchise. But rather than offering a mobile port or a markedly new gaming experience, this upcoming title is being developed to feature remixes of memorable battles from the popular RPG series. The game is called Final Fantasy Record Keeper, and it stars Deci, a worker in Dr. Mog's history department who's able to dive into paintings to enter the 16-bit worlds and battles of Final Fantasy games past. According to Siliconera:
Each numbered Final Fantasy game has its own world. Clear the dungeons in a world and you unlock some of those characters. It’s possible to mix and match unlocked characters from different Final Fantasy games into one party. So, you can bring Cloud with you to fight Golbez or Terra with you to face Baigan. Characters can be further enhanced by equipping weapons and abilities you collect.Final Fantasy Record Keeper is being developed by Square Enix and DeNa for a scheduled release in Japan as a free-to-play game on iOS and Android later this summer. It's yet unknown whether it will eventually be released for players outside the country. This is the latest game to be announced by Square Enix for its Final Fantasy franchise, following the recent unveilings of the combat biking game Final Fantasy VII G-Bike, set for a fall release in Japan, and the social RPG Final Fantasy Artniks Dive, coming to Japan this summer as well. Last month, Square Enix announced that it’s set to release the mobile RPG Final Fantasy Agito, which was first launched in Japan last May, in North America "soon."
