This game is a mobile love letter to the Active Time Battle, which is a series staple. It's described as a "touch-action RPG in which you continuously battle enemies to advance through the game's many stages." All action, all the time? We can dig it.
Each character will have an ATB gauge that ticks down until they can perform in action. Once they're able to attack, all you have to do is tap or drag your finger over them. Every three hours will yield a Fever option, which will allow you to attack without having to wait for the ATB gauges to refill.
The game's supposed to pack over 20 different jobs, including warrior, monk, red mage, etc. You'll be able to use these jobs' skills to take on classic enemies from the Final Fantasy bestiary, like bombs, cactuars, and behemoths! Oh, my!
And of course you'll be able to purchase premium content in the form of 35 iconic characters throughout the series, as well as stages from Final Fantasy VII, X, and XIII.
While New Zealand already has access to the game for $4.19 ($3.51 US dollars), the US and UK will most likely have to wait until the App Store update, way into the early morning hours of Thursday, January 17th, 2013.
