FINAL FANTASY XV POCKET EDITION

It feels like it has been ages since we have received a premium Final Fantasy game on Android. Luckily it would seem the wait has been worth it as Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition is a great RPG.

This is literally a pocket-sized version of the Final Fantasy XV, and it has been executed excellently and is well worth the asking price.
