Now, I”m sure that you are all up to date about Fullmetal Alchemist Mobile and why it is important, so let us talk about the game itself.
Fullmetal Alchemist Mobile: About The Game
Fullmetal Alchemist Mobile is an upcoming mobile game for Android and iOS devices developed by Square Enix as a continuation of the Fullmetal Alchemist franchise. The upcoming game is based in the world of the original dark fantasy manga by Hiromu Arakawa that revolves around ancient alchemy and presents middle-aged chemistry mingled with spiritual elements making for a supernatural experience that is simply unlike any other in the world of manga and anime. The story revolves around two brothers, Edward Elric and Alphonse Elric who go through a lot of sorrow and despair but eventually decide to overcome everything and rise again. The original manga and anime are famous for the emotional and heavy storytelling that they employ which is simply unparalleled.
Now, with Fullmetal Alchemist Mobile, Square Enix is trying to bring the magic back into the franchise. It has been a long time since we have had a meaningful addition to the Fullmetal Alchemist franchise and this seems like the perfect opportunity to introduce a whole new generation to the franchise. The upcoming game is set to be a tactical RPG that will have the players think before each move and each blow. From what we have been able to gather so far from the teasers and the trailers is that the game is going to have a lot of fighting elements while being wholly engaging at the same time. The game is going to have 40 characters from the original anime feature in-game and the players will be able to play as each of them and even battle each other in multiplayer using these to gain skills and points.
Square has also made a lot of promises about the illustrations in the game and reportedly made them more engaging to fit the new style of the game and inserted a lot of gameplay elements to make the game fit into the SRPG genre properly. All things considered, Fullmetal Alchemist Mobile is looking to be a complete game in terms of the lore, story, and gameplay as well. So my expectations from it are very high. Pair that with the reputation of the studio and you have got a game that is an upcoming fan favorite.
