Final Fantasy Agito XIII

Final Fantasy Agito XIII (ファイナルファンタジー アギトXIII, Fainaru Fantajī Agito Sātīn?) is a video game for mobile phones which, alongside Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy Versus XIII, makes up the compilation Fabula Nova Crystallis: Final Fantasy XIII so far. The game is not a sidestory to Final Fantasy XIII, it is part of one story which will have shared themes and mythos around which all the Final Fantasy XIII games will be centered. Agito is Latin for "to put in motion,", which may be a reference to the games platform. While a release outside of Japan has not been announced, Hajime Tabata is trying to appeal to the North American players in his direction of the game.

Gameplay

The game will utilize a mobile phone network to form parties of characters and most likely play through the game cooperatively. The game will also make use of CGI cutscenes.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Plot

The games plot is thought to be "massive" and is still being "finalized" as of June 2008. The game is set in a magic school named Akademia, and will gradually expand to the larger world outside of the school. It is described as an online RPG, but not "massively multiplayer".
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Characters

Twelve characters have been revealed so far, all appearing to be students. Their weapons include a longsword, a katana, handguns, a shotgun, a mace, a bow and arrow, a spear, a scythe, an extending flail, bare fists, a flute, and a deck of Tarot cards. The Moogle, a character that has appeared in previous Final Fantasy games, is not - but is commonly mistaken to be - the 13th character. The character with the deck of cards has been revealed to have a greater importance than the other characters (shown in a pamphlet at the 2006 Tokyo Game Show).

Development

The decision to create Final Fantasy Agito XIII was made after the other two Final Fantasy XIII had already been decided upon, and was made in response to the popularity of the mobile phone game Before Crisis: Final Fantasy VII. It was then decided to make it exclusive to mobile phones. Unveiled at E³ '06, the game offers players easy on-the-go access to the Final Fantasy XIII universe. Utilizing gameplay functions only available through mobile phones, this title provides players with a unique take on a story accessible anywhere their real-life adventures may take them." Currently developers are planning a release on the next generation of cell phones as they currently cannot offer all the capabilities they need. An issue developers have grappled with is whether or not to make the command buttons used in the game visible or not. The game is in development with the idea of making it a "full-fledged" numbered game".

I think this is only for mobile phones....though a PSP release isn't that far-fetched

Probably depends on how long the game will be.
