The latest official Final Fantasy game, from current Final Fantasy top man Yoshinori Kitase, was announced in an interview between Kitase and series creator Hironobu Sakaguchi in Weekly Famitsu.

Titled Mevius Final Fantasy, the game is being developed in-house and is slated for release on iOS and Android in Spring, 2015. According to Kitase, the game will take the "classic road" (็Ž‹้“) of Final Fantasy with features like map exploration โ€“ although moving across the map will be automated โ€“ tactical battles, and a leveling system. The game focuses on the "warrior of light," paying homage to the original Final Fantasy that Sakaguchi made.
