PALO ALTO, CA and TOKYO, JAPAN - June 28, 2017 - MZ , Epic Action - an MZ studio- in collaboration with Square Enix Co., Ltd. today announced the launch of the global, free-to-play, mobile game FINAL FANTASY XV: A NEW EMPIRE.

Working in close collaboration with the Square Enix designers and developers, Epic Action created FINAL FANTASY XV: A NEW EMPIRE in the image of the role-playing game series originally released by Square Enix in 1987. Like the console game, FINAL FANTASY XV: A NEW EMPIRE features Noctis and his companions - Gladiolus, Ignis and Prompto - in the world of Eos.
