Old School Final Fantasy fans have something to rejoice about, that is at least, if you’re an iOS user. Square Enix has released it’s new iteration of the Final Fantasy universe, All The Bravest. Final Fantasy: ATB looks a heck of a lot like Super Nintendo era Final Fantasy games, and combat is based on Final Fantasy’s classic Active Time Battle System, in which players possess a gauge that displays the time remaining until that character can execute an action. Once the character’s gauge is full, players simply tap on the enemy to attack. Introducing this feature will no doubt bring some furious tapping action once the battles ensue.
Final Fantasy: ATB features your favorite characters from throughout the massive Final Fantasy universe, Chocobos, Moogles and all. Also included is the jobs system, allowing players to utilize over 20 different jobs such as white mage, black mage, thief, monk and warrior. The soundtrack includes over 30 different Final Fantasy tracks, which you can rock out to as you destroy everything that steps in your path. There is also an in-game shop, which allows players purchace content such as characters and new worlds.
“The in-game shop offers access to 35 famous characters from a number of Final Fantasy titles. Each purchase ensures you will receive a new, random character.
