Square Enix announced at GamesCom, that Final Fantasy XV is headed to iOS, Android, and Windows 10 Mobile Devices with its new Pocket Edition. The new edition will be released episodically across mobile platforms to accommodate the large story, and even gets this adorable new art style.

But after a bit, it has a charm to it, and I’m already pretty fond of it. There’s no release date as of yet, but hopefully it won’t be long before we can see how well Final Fantasy XV transitions to touch screens.
