Square Enix and Mobage will be bringing Final Fantasy Brigade to North America for iOS and Android devices for free as Final Fantasy: Airborne Brigade. Brigade originally released in Japan in January as an social game for mobile phones before being ported to South Korea.
While Square Enix did not give an actual release date, they are giving an opportunity to pre-register on their North American website and obtain an exclusive in-game card of Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy VII, as well as an email notification when the game goes live.
Final Fantasy: Airborne Brigade takes place in an ancient kingdom, responsible for guarding crystals, which is invaded by monsters. Each player rides an airship and players can form groups called airborne brigades to fight bosses together. The goal is to restore to luster of the crystals, which have lost their radiance.
What bosses? Ifrit, Shiva, Bahamut, and Odin are all in the game. Each player gains experience and levels up as you go along, and there’s a PvP element in the game, too, where your party can fight your friends.
Final Fantasy Brigade currently has over three million subscribers in Japan.
