[Update: Out now] Square Enix's graphic adventure 'Life is Strange' is finally coming to Android in July

Square Enix's Life is Strange started its existence as an episodic graphic adventure game for PC and consoles back in 2015. At the time many critics found that it offered one of the best interactive stories of its generation, which is probably why it was eventually released on iOS two years later. Of course, like many high-profile iOS games, Android was never considered for a port. Well, it would seem Android is no longer the forgotten stepchild as I am happy to report that we are getting our own version sometime in July, and you can pre-register for a release announcement on the Play Store right now.

Star Ocean: Anamnesis makes its English-language Play Store debut

Since the beginning of June, we have known that an English language version of Star Ocean: Anamnesis would be coming stateside. Square Enix even hinted at a July release, and lo and behold it's now July and Star Ocean: Anamnesis is indeed officially available for download from the Play Store. Like many of Square Enix's free-to-play mobile games, you can expect gorgeous graphics, plenty of hero collecting, and a very familiar action RPG gameplay loop.

Square Enix has given up on the GO series, will not be making any more

In a recent PCGamesInsider.biz interview with Square Enix Montreal's studio head Patrick Naud, it was revealed that the studio is no longer working on the GO franchise. In my mind this news does not point towards a positive direction for the company, at least when it comes to their mobile titles. Obviously games with an upfront price do not earn nearly as much on Android as the many free-to-play titles out there, but does that mean premium games aren't worth the trouble? Well, it would seem so, at least for Square Enix Montreal.

Square Enix is bringing 'Star Ocean: Anamnesis' to the West, and pre-registration is open

Square Enix is actually bringing Star Ocean: Anamnesis to the West, and you can pre-register for a release announcement right now on the Google Play Store. One thing to understand is that this title has been available in Japan since 2016, which is why it's so surprising to see an English translation in the works two years later. For the most part, this plays just like one of Square's other gacha games Mobius Final Fantasy. This means you can expect to play in portrait as you dodge enemies, time your attacks, and manage your abilities to destroy everything coming your way.

Square Enix brings 'Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth' to Android, fully translated and with IAPs

Valkyrie Profile is a classic RPG that was published by Square Enix back in 1999 for the original PlayStation. Unlike the majority of Square's RPGs, this title deviated from the standard top-down exploration and replaced it with unique (at the time) 2D platforming gameplay. To this day it's still considered a cult hit by its fans worthy of being listed alongside the Xenogears or Suikoden series. So it is my great pleasure to announce that the PSP port Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth has found its way to Android, and you can pick it up right now for $15.99.

Chrono Trigger has been updated with new features to bring it up to date with the PC release

Chrono Trigger has had quite the checkered past on Android. It originally released on the Play Store back in 2012. Later that year Android version 4.3 was released which broke the game. Square Enix left it broken until it was finally updated with a fix sometime in 2014. It has had a few updates since then, but none of them were of substance. The good news is that it appears Square Enix is finally showing some love to this classic JRPG since it was just updated with some new and useful features in order to bring it in line with their freshly released PC port.

Square Enix has officially released 'Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition' for Android, and it's fantastic

About a week ago Square Enix had listed February 9th as the official release date for Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition on the Apple App Store, but it was uncertain if Android would receive the game on the same date. Well, there is no need to wonder any longer as it is now officially available on the Google Play Store. Better yet, the first chapter is completely free to play with each of the 9 subsequent ones ranging in price from $0.99-$3.99 a piece, or $20 for the whole shebang. That's right, Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition is a full-on premium release that can be easily playtested at your convenience.

So not only can you sign up to receive a notification once this title is officially available, there is an all-new trailer to accompany this pre-registration that reveals some new scenes of gameplay.
