Square Enix has been focusing on mobile development as of late, bringing ports of its most successful titles as well as developing new titles for the mobile audience. The Japanese company has revealed today the next step in their mobile strategy by announcing a new streaming service which will be launched in Japan on October 9th.
The new service, which will be called Dive In, will allow gamers to stream games to their iOS devices by paying a pre-game subscription fee. Among the games that will be available on the service are several Final Fantasy titles like Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VIII, Final Fantasy XIII and other titles like Murdered: Soul Suspect and Mystery: The Cherry Blossom Murders. It will definitely be interesting to see how two current console games like Final Fantasy XIII and Murdered: Soul Suspect will run with the service and if they keep the same level of graphical quality as on consoles.
Unfortunately there are no news on a possible Western release of the service. We will keep you updated on the matter as soon as possible. If you know Japanese, or don’t fear using an online translator, you can learn more about Dive In by checking out the service’s official website.
