A brand new Final Fantasy adventure is coming to the App Store tomorrow. Final Fantasy: All the Bravest brings back the franchise's classic ATB battles, with a unique twist: massive party sizes.

Each character has their own ATB gauge for you to monitor, and once they're ready, you simply tap the character to command it to attack. Given the party size, you'll be juggling quite a bit, creating combos by tapping multiple characters in quick succession.

Of particular note for Final Fantasy fans will be the game's soundtrack, which includes over 30 songs from the series, mostly comprised of battle themes. As the App Store describes it, it is "the perfect soundtrack to listen to as your crush your enemies and see them driven before you!"

      At Square Enix HQ:
      Suit 1: "So what should we do for our next iOS game?"
      Suit 2: "I don't really know... maybe another port or remake? People seem to love those."
      Suit 1: "Yes that sounds good, but what game should we do? We've already used up most of IP..."
      Suit 3: [hurr] "HOW ABOUT FINAL FANTASY BUT WE USE A SIMPLIFIED AND COMPLETELY GIMPED FIGHTING SYSTEM?" [durr]
      Suit 1&2: [in unison] "Brilliant!"

      But maybe it will be good?

        Nope. It'll be $3 with plenty of in-app purchase options for levels and characters.

      holy shit the in app pricing
      All The Bravest features 20 progress-unlockable characters, all based on series jobs like Thief, Blue Mage, and Knight. There are a further 35 'Premium' series characters such as Cloud from FF7 available via in-app purchases, priced $0.99 each. In a cheeky move, each purchase provides you with a new character at random, meaning it might take more than a few goes if you're after a specific one. You can also purchase additional stages based on areas from Final Fantasy 7, 10, and 13, available as 'World Tickets' for $3.99.

        Goddamn, if that's not a blatant cash grab, I don't know what is...

          Squenix is pretty bad about that with their iOS games. Theatrhythm is an great example of DLC greed gone horribly overboard.

        Sounds a lot like the item boxes in the Mass Effect 3 MP. Gamble your cash for the faint possibility of getting something useful!

        perhaps they watched that guys presentation about the pricing for Battlefield Heroes... and then figured they'd just run with it.

        SE is headed off a cliff anyway... :/

        it's just like the little gundam or anime toys that come in those small boxes, it's random which figure is in there. Just another day in Japanese marketing

          Well when gambling is illegal you gotta get your fix some how.

          The pricing sits on the high side for an IOS game. Wouldn't this make a lot more sense as a $20 or $40 dollar 3DS or Vita game (assuming more centent and polish)? Or heck. Just make it $15 bucks for the whole IOS game and sell $5 updates every few months.

          Buying games piecemeal looks more and more discouraging. I'd be much happier if I could shave $20 bucks from not buying the multiplayer content from games like Mass Effect, or Bioshock.

        it's getting to the point where you can't just buy a fucking mobile game anymore without having to deal with or be nagged by micro transactions anymore. i'm pretty sick of it.

        You can't be defeated, but the only way to progress after all your characters are knocked out is to either wait for the bar to refill so you can restore your party, or pay for Golden Hourglasses to do the same. So... even basic progress in the game is hampered by for-pay-gimmicks.

        20 Golden Hourglasses for $3 a $6.67 value!

      okay this it the last straw for me considering the SE, they just went and made this shitofafinalfantasy that should've been left out of the market and posted as a f2p game but no, this just gives the FF series horrible image and the way seems to be worsening, hope they fix this and go back to oldschool ways

        Apparently it's a port though, it isn't anything new.

      The way the battles are set up it sort of reminds me of a coin-op game.
