Square Enix has announced plans for the final scenario for Final Fantasy XI. Titled Rhapsodies of Vana’diel, the content will be split into three parts launching in May, August, and November of this year. The release of the final chapter will signal the end of major updates to the game, though the game will still see maintenance and content fine-tuning. PS2 and 360 operations for the title will cease in March 2016.
The company will also partner with Nexon for a mobile adaptation of Final Fantasy XI. Apart from optimization for the platform and making use of the touchscreen interface, few details were given at this time, though FFXI Mobile will launch in Japan, Korea, North America, and Europe.
The last announcement was for Final Fantasy Grandmasters, a smartphone-based online RPG based in the world of FFXI. Japanese beta testing will begin in April.
