After being available only in select Asian regions, Square Enix and developer Alim Co. recently launched their latest game, the Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius globally through the Google Play Store and iOS App Store as a free-to-play title. After a few hours of maintenance and setting up servers, the game is now online across the world. For the uninitiated, Square Enix is one of the more famous role-playing game developers based in Japan, popularly known for the Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, and Kingdom Hearts series.

Square Enix has been eager to be a part of the massive $34.8-billion-dollar mobile gaming industry, and they are giving it their best shot, capitalizing their best role-play gaming franchise and combining it with another highly popular game, Brave Frontier. A lot of design elements in the game has been inspired by Brave Frontier.
