Final Fantasy Agito Mobile Game Ends Service in November
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Square Enix announced on Monday that it is ending service on its Final Fantasy Agito smartphone game on November 30 at 23:59 JST. The company added that "in order to offer a more satisfying game experience," it is shifting its development toward a "rebirth" of Final Fantasy Agito. Square Enix will announce more details on the "rebirth" of Final Fantasy Agito at Tokyo Game Show in September.
In the free-to-play Final Fantasy Agito mobile game, players are elite Akademia cadets aiming to become an Agito by completing combat missions and deepening their friendships by interacting with NPCs. On weekdays, players enjoy a normal school life with their classmates, and on weekends players work together to battle enemy bosses. The fate of the world is reliant on the game's "decision" system where votes of players affect the world's history. The game has more than 1 million downloads.
The game launched in Japan in May 2014 and had been slated for release in North America. Voice actors Matthew Mercer, Orion Acaba, and Cristina Vee revealed that they would star in the dub for both Agito and its sister title Final Fantasy Type-0 HD as Trey, Nine, and Cinque, respectively. Square Enix had also registered trademarks for the "Final Fantasy Agito" title and logo in Europe.
A PlayStation Vita version, Final Fantasy Agito+, was slated for January 15 in Japan, but Square Enix has delayed the game until further notice. Square Enix also announced in May that it would bring the game to Windows 10 later this year.
