When we want to play a game on our smartphones, what we usually have to do is download the game, install it on our smartphones, and play it from there. That’s how it is for the PC and for consoles as well. Well the good news is for mobile gamers is that if you didn’t want to have to download a game on your phone, how does the idea of streaming it sound to you guys?
Square Enix has recently announced a new service that will be available to gamers in Japan called Dive In. This service will allow gamers to stream a selection of games by Square Enix onto their mobile devices from the cloud. The service will be available to both iOS and Android gamers.
A report from 4Gamer has revealed the first three titles of the service which will include Final Fantasy VII International, Final Fantasy XIII, and Season of Mystery: The Cherry Blossom Murders. That’s not all the titles that they have planned because come November, Final Fantasy VIII and The Last Remnant will be added to the list as well.
Other titles such as Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Lightning Returns Final Fantasy XIII have been scheduled for a release in 2015. The service will not be free, obviously. Gamers will be able to stream a 30 minute demo, after which they can choose to stream the game for a block of three days, ten days, thirty days, or even a whole year.
The prices will also vary depending on how long you plan on streaming the game for and which title you choose. The service will kick off on the 9th of October in Japan and there is currently no word as to whether it will be offered to other markets eventually.
