Mistwalker Announces Launch Date for Terra Battle (It’s Sooner than You Think)

It’s rare that a mobile game comes along and genuinely excites the hardcore gamer (no pun intended, we promise). However, Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi’s forthcoming Terra Battle has certainly been on the minds of many. As a departure from developer Mistwalker’s typical RPG wheel-house, Terra Battle is a card combat game with some truly unique ideas. Up until today, we had no idea when it would hit Android and iOS devices; however, we now have a date: October 8. That’s next week! Talk about sooner than expected.

On that very same day, the studio will launch their “download starter” campaign, in which every download will count toward a sort of crowdfunding stretch goal. If two million downloads are reached, Mistwalker will create a console MMORPG based on the Terra Battle IP. That’s… Well, that’s pretty awesome. So be sure to get your download on when it launches next Wednesday. The best news of all? It’s free.
