Square Enix describes the game:
Created by an all-star development team including producer Yoshinori Kitase and writer Kazushige Nojima – known for their work on the acclaimed Final Fantasy VII and upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake – Mobius Final Fantasy is the story of a man who wakes up in a world called Palamecia with no memory of his past.
