Final Fantasy Tactics Advance may have had a similar name to the PlayStation strategy RPG that came out a few years before it, but this Game Boy Advance game featured a whole different set of characters, battle properties, and a more youthful storyline. The game’s sequel, Grimoire of the Rift, follows the story of a boy who gets warped into the world of a book during his summer vacation and must battle alongside his gang of warriors, mages, and thieves to find a way home. Much of the same gameplay as the first one returns, but the game introduces new character classes, regions in Ivalice to explore, and touch-screen controls that make setting up your troops for battle even easier.
A very traditional strategy RPG game, Grimoire of the Rift would work great on mobile devices since its controls are so similar to those of Final Fantasy Tactics, which is already out on iOS. A Japan-only mobile entry in the series is already out, but there's no word on whether it'll be available worldwide. Fans of the genre would not only get another great title to play on the go, but its colorful setting and memorable characters put a whole new spin on the phrase “getting lost in a good book”.
