Final Fantasy Brave Exvius takes us back to a Time of turn-based RPGs and Magic casting. This free to play download for your mobile device by Square Enix is amazingly beautiful and crisp. Besides Graphics the first thing you’ll notice is that you actually have to play the game with your mobile device in the portrait position versus landscapes which is not common for in in-depth games such as this. For those of us who like to play mobile games at work holding the phone in this position makes it looks like you’re reading an email or send an important message versus playing the game which would definitely help with playing the game when you’re not supposed to be playing. Thanks Square Enix.
The story focuses on Rain, a young knight from the Kingdom of Grandshelt. Though a stalwart knight in his own right, he feels overshadowed by his father, Sir Raegan. He and his childhood friend Lasswell are traveling on their airship when they encounter a young woman trapped in a crystal who begs assistance from them. She leads them to the Earth Shrine, where the Earth Crystal is under attack by Veritas of the Dark (Dark Lord), who claims to be one of the Sworn Six of Paradia. While the Dark Lord’s real motive remains unknown, it seems that he wants to end the world by destroying all crystals. Though Rain and Lasswell have never heard of either Veritas or his organization, he proves to be a formidable foe, destroying the Earth Crystal despite their opposition. With the help of the young woman from the crystal, Fina, a healer and archer who has lost her memory, the two set out to track down Veritas and stop his rampage.
