Square Enix has made it known that Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius is coming out in Japan for iOS and Android on October 22nd.

Unfortunately, there's still no mention of a western version of the game, but we live in hope of the day that it's announced.

Brave Exvius is a bit of a throwback for Square Enix. As with Final Fantasy: Record Keeper, it's a spin-off story that features pixel art instead of the 3D look we expect of the series these days.

It's developed by A-Lim and so the battle system is similar to that studio's previous game Brave Frontier. You touch a character to attack and advance through waves of enemies until getting to a boss.
However, it does have typical Final Fantasy elements such as limit breaks and monster summons. You can also summon heroes from various other Final Fantasy games for your party of five.

Final thing to note is that Brave Exvius has a big focus on story.

It follows three characters - Rain, Lasswell, and Fina - as they attempt to restore balance to the world of Lapis with the power of Visions.
