Final Fantasy 15 Getting Mobile MMORPG Spinoff

Tentatively titled Final Fantasy 15 Mobile, the game will expand on world and lore while offering a host of brand-new content as well.

Final Fantasy 15 might never get all of its originally planned DLC, but the story will continue in a brand-new mobile MMORPG nonetheless. The game is tentatively titled Final Fantasy 15 Mobile and is the result of a partnership between Square Enix, Korean developer JSC, and GAEA.

FF15 Mobile will release in China first, with a global launch planned sometime after that. There's no word yet on when these launches might be, though more details and a trailer are planned for the first half of this year.

FF15 Mobile is set in a world parallel to the original Final Fantasy 15, but it borrows many elements from the base game. Players take control of Prince Noctis and friends and travel around the massive world. While the mobile game will include many elements from FF15 Royal Edition, it will also have new content that expands on the game world and lore based on the "Origin of Mythology."

That means new locations as well, like the Great Pagoda and, in true Final Fantasy fashion, floating continents. Combat is touch-controlled, and even though gameplay is designed as a large-scale multiplayer experience, the dev team is taking steps to ensure it has a specific JRPG and Final Fantasy feel to it.
