The game just launched yesterday for the Switch and the switch edition is discounted compared to other platforms. Good price for anyone looking to pick it up. It is an HD port of the mobile edition which was well received on mobile. Not sure how the port has been so far.

Man Nintendo must think it's Switch users are stupid if they are charging $25 for a free mobile game.

Only the first chapter is free on mobile dude. It's basically a demo.

It was a fair assumption based on the information at hand.

Considering that SE has a long history of having some of the most expensive premium games on mobile - a dozen games over $20 - and the fact that it says 'in-app purchases' and 'Download chapter 1 and play for free. Subsequent chapters are available for purchase,' as the first line of the description on the Play store, I'd have to say it's not fair at all to assume that it's free 'based on the information at hand.'

Square never offers anything really for free. Its either pay for content or pay to win. So info at hand would suggest there is a catch (there almost always is).

Also it's Square asking, not Nintendo.

Got a weird amount of slack for saying someone who never looked at the game might not know the payment structure of a game. Just trying to suggest not pissing on someone who replied based on what they just read in another comment. I really don't feel like someone who clearly didn't know what the game entailed, had done a thorough scan of the play store listing. But empathy is kind of a lost art, I suppose.

Nintendo does think its Switch users are stupid. Look at how many times they've repackaged the same game to keep selling it to its users. Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8, all those NES, Super NES, N64 etc games they keep porting to a new console and selling it to you again.

Same deal with Square.

It's not free, but why call out Nintendo when OP says other platforms are charging more?

If you're interested in the full game for PC, Humble Bundle has FFXV Steam keys for Windows on sale for $24.99 USD, some money goes to charity too. It's 50% off and as low as it goes for the US. Although apparently Steam had it cheaper at one point in time in CAD, but I don't know when. I picked it up... 75 GB download though! 3 days left to the sale.

I thought it was a good FF game, and enjoyed my play through on PC a lot. Don't care what the haters say.

That said, I don't know how anybody could hate themselves enough to suffer through a game of any length like this even as gimped as it is in the pocket edition, on a tablet/phone. I'm sure it's better on switch but it's insulting that it's a port of the mobile version instead of a port of the real game.

Same deal with just about every publisher out there this gen. I'd be surprised if there's any AAA publisher that hasn't yet done that at least once.

What's wrong with porting games to a new system? If you don't like it, don't buy it again but not everyone bought it the first time nor does everyone want a Wii U.
