Prepare for endless grinding on the go with Final Fantasy Legends: Hikari to Yami no Senshi (Warriors of Light and Darkness), set to be released September 6. The game will arrive on Japanese mobile phones that are supported by Square-Enix. Not to be confused with the Final Fantasy Legend series on the Gameboy from the 90's, Warriors of Light and Darkness is an all-new 32-bit adventure.
The game will be released as chapters, starting with the prologue, Akatsuki no Shou, or Chapter of Dawn. Final Fantasy fans will be glad to hear that Chapter of Dawn will be free to download. While the prologue will be free, in order to proceed in the game's story, fans will need to dish a couple hundred yen for future chapters. According to Square-Enix, each chapter will alternate between the light and dark warrior’s stories.
There is a good chance that the game will later be released in the states on Nintendo's downloadable service. A good indicator of this is Final Fantasy IV: The After, sequel to Final Fantasy IV, which was also released on Japanese mobile phones and later found its way onto Wii consoles. Things are looking up for Final Fantasy fans in North America who want some old school RPG action.
