Square Enix

Update: Don't buy this crap. It has nothing to do with Final Fantasy. Maybe one of the worst spinoffs ever. 25/100 on Metacritic.

Today Square Enix has announced (another) new Final Fantasy spinoff for iOS: Final Fantasy All The Bravest. This game makes use of the Active Time Battle (ATB) system that is used in Final Fantasy IV till IX.

Final Fantasy All The Bravest

Every character possesses an ATB gauge that displays the time remaining until that character can execute an action. When the gauge is full, simply tap or drag your finger over the character to attack. Touch multiple characters in quick succession to experience exhilarating and fast-paced battle unlike anything you’ve ever played before!
Once every three hours, the Fever option will appear. Once activated, you will be able to attack without waiting for ATB gauges to refill as long as the chocobo-themed music is playing. Deal as much damage as you can before the battle fever ends!

You can unlock up to 20 classic jobs like warrior and black mage, encounter classic enemies like Behemoth and Garland and listen to 30 songs from previous Final Fantasy games.

The game is now available on Apple iTunes for $3,99 USD. The in-game shop let you purchase 35 additional characters for $0.99 USD each (at random) and new worlds are $3,99 USD each. Total cost is a full retail game!

More information about the game on the official website.
