Final Fantasy creator's latest title is for iOS and Android.

Terra Battle

Final Fantasy creator and Mistwalker boss Hironobu Sakaguchi’s next game is, as expected, Terra Battle for smartphones, this week’s Famitsu reveals.

An interview in the magazine discusses everything from what Terra Battle is all about, to the game’s strong production staff, to development on home consoles.

Sakaguchi will show off the new smartphone RPG for the first time during a panel at the Japan Expo in France tomorrow.

Update: Additional details have come in from Famitsu.

Terra Battle will launch as a free-to-play title in September. You’ll be able to play up until the scenario’s end with no charges, Sakaguchi said.

The game features several ranks of magic, including “Mega,” “Giga,” and “Terra.” Terra is the best type of magic as it’s part of the game’s title.

Nobuo Uematsu is composing the game’s music, with about 20 songs planned.

Sakaguchi said that while Terra Battle for smartphones is a starting point, he would eventually like to arrive at a console version, as well.

Following tomorrow’s Japan Expo reveal, our next update will arrive in August.

Thanks, Hachima Kikou.
