A Final Fantasy Digital Card Game is on its way to PCs and mobile devices. At the moment, the game is about to enter a beta-testing period in Japan, but there may be a chance of it making its way stateside at some point in the future.
There are some immediate questions one might have about the Final Fantasy Digital Card Game. Silconera took the time to translate the original Japanese announcement. To start, this is certainly a good bit different from any existing physical Final Fantasy CCG. One can expect to see characters from throughout the game's very, very long history. And yes, you'll certainly be able to cook up your own decks to battle it out against your opponents with style.
A closed beta test for the game will be taking place for a lucky 10,000 people in Japan from Friday, January 18, 2019, through Friday, January 25, 2019. Seeing as it's a Japanese game and all, you'd probably need to have a decent command of the language to be able to make sense of anything. If you're one of the handfuls of Westerners who do, you should go ahead and take a crack at signing up for the Final Fantasy Digital Card Game beta. Odds are it's already hit the limit of 10,000 registrations, but a fallback option will award beta slots to anyone after the cutoff via a lottery system. The winners of the beta lottery will be announced on January 17, 2019.
The Final Fantasy Digital Card Game looks pretty neat! It may have enough franchise power to stack up against the likes of Hearthstone if it comes stateside, so let's hope a port is in the cards! It will be coming to Android, iOS, and PC sometime in 2019 with a weeklong beta period starting on January 18, 2019. In the meantime, you can follow the game's Japanese Twitter account.
