Edit on November 4th EDT: Corrected the error about Magicite not transferring between operating systems. It doesn’t apply to any that were received for free.
Edit @ 11: EDT, November 1st: It works! Some screenshots and info on game data sharing have been added. :3
Edit @ 1:22 EDT, Nov 1st: Official JP Twitter updated with tweet that there is no estimate on what time the maintenance will end. iOS and Android versions are also affected.
Edit @ 21:20 EDT: Maintenance is still going. 😡
Thanks to Tok Woei Cherng for sharing the following at the
Facebook group I’m apart of.
At the present time, the game can be installed through https://steamdb.info/app/504730/info/ without the use of VPN.
DISCLAIMER: Attempt this at your own risk. There’s every possibility the game is still region locked to Japan and Steam doesn’t really like people from other countries accessing things not meant for their own region. Please see point 3, section A under http://store.steampowered.com/subscriber_agreement/
As the game is still in maintenance at the moment, it’s uncertain if the game will even work properly once it goes live at 10:00 AM Japan Time.
Here are some screenshots after downloading the installer. ^^
I suppose the pop-up window right aligned since the game menu will be on that side.
As for the full list of Steam achievements, you can view them at the steamdb.info site.
For system requirements, I listed them here: https://koukoupuffs.net/2016/10/18/mobius-final-fantasy-jp-square-enix-to-release-mobius-ff-on-steam-next-month/
For everyone looking to know how to share the save data from their mobile game with the Windows one, the Square Enix Presents stream from yesterday had a slide about that. 😀
Seeing that the game loads and plays without issue, it seems like Square Enix just opted to make the store page fixed to the Japan region. The game isn’t doesn’t check for your location. This isn’t to say it won’t change in the future though.
Come to think of it, I think in-app purchases are still restricted to Japan. I’m unsure of this though.
Please note that purchased Magicite/Magic Stones (魔石 – the premium currency) doesn’t transfer between different operating systems. Magicite received through maps, login bonuses, daily missions, etc. will.
An English version of Mobius Final Fantasy Steam/Windows version is currently unavailable.
