When was the Final Fantasy 15 Pocket Edition release date?

Final Fantasy 15 Pocket Edition was released on 9 February 2018 on iOS and Android, and is now available to download completely free across both platforms - go ahead and download the game on the App Store or Google Play.

As mentioned, the price is free. Well, kind of. While the game itself is free, you only get access to one of 10 chapters of the game. If you like what you see after the first chapter, you can unlock them on a per-chapter basis or pay (£19.99 in total) to unlock everything at once.

Final Fantasy 15 Pocket Edition Gameplay: Is this just the FF15 story on a 5in screen?

Not according to Square Enix, which said that it’s “an all-new adventure that retells the beloved story of Final Fantasy XV”.

The graphics have been changed to a more cutesy style of artwork – it seems that opinions are already divided on whether it’s good or not. We think it's charming, and after playing the first chapter of the game, we're really excited about what this may mean for the future of mobile gaming. Will Pocket Editions of AAA games become a regular occurrence?

Obviously, the control mechanism has had to be adapted so it works on a touch screen, but the actual mechanics have been carried across from the console version. You can attack monsters with multiple weapons, warp between points for tactical advantage and drive the beloved Regalia across the kingdom.
