Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition is finally here, and the wait wasn't worth it

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition is finally here, and the wait wasn't worth it

We've known since June of 2019 that Square Enix would bring Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition to Android, and after several more announcements, we learned the game would be released on August 27th, 2020. In case you didn't realize, that's today, and so Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition is officially available on the Play Store as a free-to-play release, with cross-platform co-op available to free and paid players alike. This setup affords fans an easy way to test the game while also boosting co-op for everyone, and if you'd like to unlock the entirety of the title, you'll have to plunk down $25.99.

Tales of Crestoria is the latest gacha RPG to land on Android, and it's a buggy mess

Tales of Crestoria is the latest gacha RPG to land on Android, and it's a buggy mess

Yesterday (July 15th), many of those who pre-registered for the release of Tales of Crestoria received a notification the gacha RPG was available on Android. Of course, Bandai Namco decided that Google's pre-reg system exists to be abused, so the game wasn't actually available, but was instead released while the servers were still in maintenance. This resulted in the Play Store listing being flooded with 5-star reviews before the game was playable since the "release" was tentatively called a pre-load by eager fans sticking it to anyone that left a 1-star review after receiving a release announcement for an unreleased game.

SINoALICE is the latest RPG from Yoko Taro, and it's available today for the first time in the West

SINoALICE is the latest RPG from Yoko Taro, and it's available today for the first time in the West

Yoko Taro's mobile RPG SINoALICE will finally see a worldwide release after an indefinite delay last year. The game was initially published in Japan back in 2017 by Nexon, and yet it would appear that the publisher wants nothing to do with the title anymore, and so Nexon is transferring the license to the original developer Pokelabo. Interestingly Pokelabo has just announced that it's cooperating with Square Enix to bring the game to the West on July 1st, though I have to wonder if this announcement is simply a last-ditch effort to make money with an aging mobile game that even Nexon couldn't bring to fruition as a global release.

Romancing SaGa Re;UniverSe is a collection-based RPG from Square Enix, now available worldwide

Romancing SaGa Re;UniverSe is a collection-based RPG from Square Enix, now available worldwide

Much like Dragon Quest of the Stars (coincidentally released today), Romancing SaGa Re;UniverSe is an older gacha RPG that's coming to the West. You see, Square Enix actually released Romancing SaGa Re;UniverSe in Japan back in 2018, and apparently the title is coming to the West with an English translation in tow sometime this summer, and guess what, this English version just landed on the Play Store as a pre-registration listing.

Dragon Quest of the Stars is available for download a day early, but you can't play it yet (Update: Out now)

Dragon Quest of the Stars is available for download a day early, but you can't play it yet (Update: Out now)

Square Enix has revealed this morning that its mobile RPG Dragon Quest of the Stars is officially available on the Google Play Store for pre-download. We last heard about Dragon Quest of the Stars back in January when Square announced that the title was available for pre-registration and that it would be officially released on February 25th. Well, clearly today isn't the 25th, but you can indeed install Dragon Quest of the Stars a day early if you'd like to prepare for tomorrow's release.

Dragon Quest of the Stars is coming to the West (Update: Pre-reg now available, official release Feb. 25)

Dragon Quest of the Stars is coming to the West (Update: Pre-reg now available, official release Feb. 25)

Square Enix just announced that its free-to-play role-playing game Dragon Quest of the Stars will come to the West in early 2020. On top of this announcement, the developer has stated that starting today mobile gamers in select regions can register to participate in a closed beta test for the Android version of the game. Supposedly this is a "critically acclaimed" title in Japan that's racked up over 20-million installs, though, from the looks of it, the game is a casual RPG with a popular brand slapped on top.

Square Enix will shut down Mobius Final Fantasy globally on June 30

Square Enix will shut down Mobius Final Fantasy globally on June 30

Square Enix has just announced that it will be shutting down Mobius Final Fantasy, a free-to-play RPG originally released in 2016. The game's servers have been offline in Japan since December, and as of this morning, the studio has made it clear that the global version will be shut down on June 30, 2020. Updates and in-game events will still take place in the coming months, including the conclusion of the Warrior of Despair story, though Magicite (purchasable in-game currency) sales will end in March.

The Last Remnant Remastered is the latest RPG from Square Enix to arrive on Android, available today for $20

The Last Remnant Remastered is the latest RPG from Square Enix to arrive on Android, available today for $20

Square Enix has just surprised RPG fans by releasing The Last Remnant Remastered on Android and iOS for $19.99, hot off the heels of the releases for Romancing SaGa 3, and SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions. What strikes me as odd about today's lowkey launch is that Square Enix didn't announce the title in any shape or form for mobile (though a Nintendo Switch version was released this summer), and after the lukewarm reception for the two SaGa games mentioned above, I have to wonder if Square Enix's pricing for its mobile titles is starting to wear thin on fans and consumers alike.

SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions is Square Enix's latest JRPG to land on the Play Store

SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions is Square Enix's latest JRPG to land on the Play Store

In September, we learned that SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions (the twelfth entry in the SaGa series) would arrive on Android on December 3rd. Lo and behold, the game is now officially available on the Play Store for $23.99, a lofty price that almost matches last month's launch of Romancing SaGa 3. As expected, this is a premium release, so there are no in-app purchases or advertisements to worry about. What you see is what you get, and what you get is an enhanced Square Enix JRPG suitable for play on mobile devices.

(Update: Out now) Sword Art Online Alicization Rising Steel is a new RPG from Bandai Namco, now available for pre-reg

Sword Art Online Alicization Rising Steel is the latest mobile SAO game from Bandai Namco, and it's available on the Play Store for pre-registration. Much like the previous two titles in the mobile series, Alicization Rising Steel is an RPG, and this time around it's based on the Alicization arc of the SAO anime, though exclusive content is also expected.
