Square Enix Will Probably Announce A New, Original Final Fantasy Game For iOS On Thursday

So Square Enix has a new teaser up for a game that they'll announce on Thursday. The most plausible theory: it's a totally new, original iOS game called Final Fantasy: All The Bravest.

Some have theorized that this is a remake or mobile port of Final Fantasy V or Final Fantasy VI, but the sprite outlines just don't support that. The images on the left are behemoths from Final Fantasy VI, yes, but the sprites on the right are mostly from Final Fantasy V. (And I can't recognize the bottom-left character sprite. Is that from FFIII?)

In other words, it's probably neither of those games. It's probably a new game that borrows sprites from other Final Fantasys much like the criminally underappreciated (and obscenely overpriced) Final Fantasy Dimensions.

So why "All The Bravest"? That name was originally trademarked by Square Enix a few months ago (and assumed by most fans at the time to be connected to the 3DS role-playing game Bravely Default: Flying Fairy, because of the word "Brave"). But Internet sleuths on Kotaku and elsewhere have found mentions of the name "All The Bravest" in the new teaser's source code. Also a link to iTunes.

I've reached out to Square Enix, but they won't comment. I guess a two-day wait ain't too bad.
