Square Enix is making an FF thing

Hmmmmm.

My guess:
a battle-focused game that mixes/matches FF characters and enemies from throughout the series
Friends, waffles, work. Or waffles, friends, work. Doesn't matter, but work is third.

My guess is a browser-based RPG where you buy coins to do special attacks otherwise you can do basic attacks only except if you use the social aspects to get your mobile friends to play.

Your guess is frighteningly plausible.

Or another iOS game.  If we're lucky(?) it might be a 3DSware title.

Apparently the source code had an iTunes link initially, so iOS is probably right.

FFV remake details? I swear those sprites look like the FFV ones...

I recall reading a business thingy from Square saying they were going to focus heavily on social and mobile games this year. This is probably part of that.

And then there are the ones that don't look like anything seen on an 8 through 32 bit console.

Also I'd pitch a guess but all the even remote possibilities have been covered. Any other guess at this point would be like guessing that its secretly XIII-Versus.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Looks like Taelus was right all along. It's a battle-focused RPG with an insane party size.  It still seems to use a lot of the FFV sprites, but it mixes other characters as well...but If you want the most popular ones, you have to buy them, I guess.

BTW, it doesn't seem to support the iPad 3 or higher...I'm hoping that's a mistake. :/

Okay everyone go buy a bunch of premiums so Square will actually release Bravely Default. HUSTLE HUSTLE HUSTLE!

That probably just means that the game isn't built for retina resolution on iPad.  I'm sure it will run on the iPad3/iPadRetina/iPad whatever the fuck.

Want condensed info?  I wroted a news story.

I see. And I'm glad the news story is up. I was too tired to read the whole thing when I wrote that. I didn't even know how it played, but now I do. Thanks.

This actually looks pretty neat to me.... shame its an IOS title..
In this world is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcedental entity or law? is it like the hand of god hovering above? Perhaps Man has no control even over his own will…
