Default Mobius Final Fantasy (formerly "Mevius Final Fantasy")

for smartphones because off course

it's produced by kitase and nojima is doing the scenario. apparently its meant to see what they could make if the staff behind the main numbered titles put all their effort into a smartphone rpg

it's supposed to be out next spring in japan, and there is meant to be a teaser site opening later. there's an image of the title logo here

Teaser site: http://www.jp.square-enix.com/MEVIUSFF/en/index.html

Said to rival the scale of a console RPG. This better not be the major console title .

I think this article says it is looking back to the original final fantasy. Warrior of light, etc.

I'm still waiting for the main console RPG that they said they were going to announce in December

I'll keep an eye on this one though, it could be interesting.

Same. Will keep an eye on developments with this, but not exactly exciting news until more is detailed about it.

Any chance "Mevius" is a poor transliteration of "Mobius"? There's a lemniscate (mathematical symbol for infinity) in the logo, and that teaser site says "Born of a line unending." So, "Mobius" would kind of fit (a Mobius Loop resembling -- or being, depending on who you ask -- a lemniscate).

God forbid they put all their effort into the kind of console title that made them what they are.

Well tets if there's a livestream please share in the Skype chat

Also Tres, this is from the comments section on a Kotaku article:

The Japanese title is "メビウス" which I assume is from "メビウスの帯" or in English "Mobius strip." Why they went with "Mevius" instead of "Mobius?" I'm guessing they thought it looked cooler.

If it's indeed true, that's a dumb ass change.

It's all Japanese anyway so I won't bother. Gotta pack my things this weekend as I'll fuck off to Leeds to stay with friends for a week.

'mevius' looks like they transcribed it from the japanese word (mebius). wikipedia lists 'mevius' and says it's german, but it gives 3 other versions of it as well and seems to call them all german so idk maybe there was some copyright issue with using moebius

the magazine scan on the kotaku link gives a little bit of story, and i mean a little bit the main character wakes up in a land called 'paramythia' with no memory, where a mysterious voice guides him

FYI that's just tech mumbo-jumbo meaning that the engine can access low-level hardware stuffs, a level deeper than the previous OpenGL wotsit allowed.
