Square Enix Bringing Streaming Game Service To iOS/Android

Square Enix of Japan has announced a streaming game service for the iOS and Android, under the name Dive In.  Launching  October 9th, customers will be able to use the new app to stream Square’s classic Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy XIII, Season of Mystery: The Cherry Blossom Murders.  Unfortunately it appears that each game will come at a hefty streaming price which will range from around 200 yen for three days worth of gaming, 300-500 yen for 10 days, around 1000 yen for a month, and up to 1800 yen for a year of service.

November of this year will see the addition of Final Fantasy VIII and The Last Remnant, followed by a December release of Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Murdered: Soul Suspect.  Lightning Returns is also scheduled for a future release sometime in 2015.  No plan to officially release these games outside of the Dive In service has been announced.

Pictured below is a price list mock up for the three launch titles.  According to the table, it would appear that each game will offer a 30 minutes free trial time period.  More information can be found on Square Enix’s new Dive In service site.
