Final Fantasy Mobile Game Getting Live-Action Musical In Japan

Kotaku EastEast is your slice of Asian internet culture, bringing you the latest talking points from Japan, Korea, China and beyond. Tune in every morning from 4am to 8am.

Free-to-play role-playing-game Final Fantasy Brave Exvius will be turned into a musical for the stage next March.

Final Fantasy Brave Exvius debuted on mobile in Japan on October 22, 2015, and went worldwide in June 2016.


According to IT Media, the musical version will be written by Fumiya Matsuzaki, who previously penned the Super Danganronpa 2 musical. On Twitter, he called this an honor and a big responsibility.

The Final Fantasy Brave Exvius musical will run from March 6 to 15 in Tokyo and from March 20 to 29 in Kobe. I wonder who will play Ariana Grande’s character?
