The free-to-play mobile role-playing game series was originally developed by A-Lim for iOS and Android devices in 2015.

Speaking about the first game and how it compared to their previous title, 'Brave Frontier', Square Enix's Executive Producer, Kei Hirono, said: "There are two main things that set 'Brave Exvius' apart.

"The first is its distinctive pixel art style, which retains the aesthetic of earlier 'Final Fantasy' titles but increases the quality, elevating its visual appeal to the next level.

"Second, we wanted to create a truly new 'Final Fantasy' title for mobile, which we think we have accomplished."

On recreating the popular characters, he continued:

"Our overall worldview of 'Brave Exvius' is that when a player summons a legacy character, what they are getting is not the actual character himself or herself, but a sort of simulacrum that we have created using our own feelings towards that character.

"Because there is a difference between, say, the "real" Cloud Strife and the Cloud Strife we have inserted into the world of 'Brave Exvius', astute fans may notice a difference between the two."

Hirono went on to explain that the differences in the characters is very much down to the individual gamers' "perception" of them.

He concluded: "Furthermore, there are sometimes different iterations of characters that have been around for a long time. "Bartz for instance, is portrayed differently in 'Dissidia' than he is in 'Final Fantasy V'.

"The version we've made for 'Brave Exvius' is yet another interpretation of his character, so you can think of each one as being different.

"It's kind of like how Napoleon, the famous historical figure, can be thought of as either an invader or a great conqueror. It all depends on your perspective."

Aside from the fact it's due out sometime next year, little else is known about the latest in the series, including which platform it will be released for.

It is simply known that it will be a tactical RPG game and the artwork and illustrations are once more handled by Yoshitaka Amano.
