Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius is a free to play mobile game in the Final Fantasy franchise and was released for iOS and Android devices. It was released in Japan on in October 22nd, 2015 and worldwide in June 2016. Players control a team of up to 6 characters at a time, engaging in turn-based battles with attacks and spells similar to classic Final Fantasy titles.
Rain and Laswell, two knights of Grandshelt and airship commanders, are attacked by an enemy force and crash land near the Earth Shrine. While looking for help, they stumble over a mysterious Dark Knight destroying the crystal inside before he easily overpowers them. However, a mysterious woman emerges from the crystal, using her power to save the two knights from death.
Fearing the consequences of the dark knight continuing to destroy the crystals around the world, Rain and Laswell begin a new journey together, aided by the amnesiac Fina who bears a strong resemblance to the girl from the crystal.
Playable characters span the entire oeuvre of the Final Fantasy franchise, including some spinoff titles, on top of original characters based in the Brave Exvius universe. More recently, Square Enix has granted some characters from non-FF titles that it owns, so main characters from franchises such as Deus Ex, Star Ocean, Tomb Raider, Just Cause, or Dragon Quest can be drawn in limited-time events.
