iOS/Android game launched in Japan last February

Square Enix North America announced on Tuesday that it will release the Dissidia Final Fantasy Opera Omnia smartphone game for iOS and Android devices this month. The company also began streaming a trailer for the game.

The pre-registration period for the game is open. Depending on how many people pre-register for the game, people who pre-register will be able to receive up to 5,000 Gems at launch.

The game features dozens of heroes and villains from various games in the Final Fantasy franchise. In a turn-based combat system, players build up Bravery to prepare for the right moment to attack. Players can create their own parties of Final Fantasy characters and team up with up to two other players to earn rewards through multiplayer quests.

Square Enix describes the game's story:

Darkness converges upon us, and the world crumbles before our very eyes…
What was once a sanctuary for the weary has now become a battlefield.
Long ago, the deities Spiritus and Materia warped the fabric of time and space to create a new world—a world they populated with warriors from other realms.
These men and women were forced to fight day and night without reprieve, and the strain of endless battle soon grew to be too great.
With battered bodies and shattered spirits, they sent out a cry for help…

The game launched for iOS and Android devices in Japan on February 1, 2017 after a delay.

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT, the PlayStation 4 version of the Dissidia Final Fantasy arcade game, shipped in Japan on January 11. The game will ship in four editions in North America on January 30.

Dissidia Final Fantasy launched in Japanese arcades in November 2015. Square Enix also released Dissidia Final Fantasy, a PlayStation Portable fighting game featuring Final Fantasy heroes and villains, in 2008 in Japan, and in 2009 in other parts of the world. The company then released the Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy sequel in 2011 for the PSP with new characters, stages, and story.
