Final Fantasy: All The Bravest brings streamlined RPG battles to iOS tomorrow

New, 13 comments

Square Enix's latest foray into the iOS app market is Final Fantasy: All The Bravest, a "touch-action" game which streamlines the game's Active Time Battle system for hasty random encounters.

Players will face off against waves and waves of the franchise's iconic monsters, controlling characters from 20 different jobs like White Mage, Monk, Warrior and so on. By tapping on these characters after their ATB gauge fills up, they'll execute their attacks in quick succession; though a Fever mode which activates every three hours removes the gauges altogether, turning the fight into a tapping free-for-all.

Heroes will level up with experience gained from battles, unlocking new jobs, character slots and items. Players can also spend real money to unlock more characters from the series — Final Fantasy 7's Cloud is seen in one screenshot — as well as additional stages from later installments in the series. These microtransactions will be stacked on top of the game's sale price when it launches tomorrow, which is NZ$4.19 in the New Zealand App Store; roughly $3.50 in U.S. dollars.
